There are many parents out there who would consider homeschooling, but they feel like they would have to give up everything else to do so.

That simply is NOT true.

There are homeschooling parents (and kids) who are frustrated and burnt out because they have the wrong idea of what homeschooling really is!

Children are a blessing. God wants us to enjoy them. Homeschooling is a gift. I believe He wants us to enjoy that as well.

Does it take some discipline and fortitude to parent well and to homeschool? Absolutely. However, I don’t believe for one minute that God ever meant it to be what many of us are trying to make it. In His goodness, God often allows it to be frustrating and overwhelming because He really does have something better for us.

Today I am sharing from my 24 years of experience as a homeschooling mom. I believe that children are a blessing. I was also determined to keep our kids home, but that meant I had to let God direct us and not chain myself to something that wasn’t a good fit for us or I would have given up a long time ago. I am here to tell you that if God leads you to homeschool, He WILL make a way for it to work for your family.

I am sharing three things that will help make homeschooling doable. It’s what worked for our family.  I’m hoping that these are ideas you can work with, use as inspiration to find your own way or, at the very least, be encouraged!
