I know Ryan’s parents are glad they made the choice to home school through high school. His sudden death made me realize more clearly that I should treasure every single moment I have with my teens. We only have our kids with us for such a short time. Then, one way or another, they are gone. So let us make a real commitment to do our best for our children. Homeschooling through high school is not only possible--it is wonderful.

For remember: whatever God calls us to do, he surely equips us to finish. Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:6)
