I find myself as eager to learn about homeschooling as any new mother just starting out on this adventure could possibly be.
A Christian approach to history should be intrinsically just, rational, and hopeful.
How do you work with a high schooler while you have the 4-year-old pulling everything out of your underwear drawer and building a tent (don't ask)?
Kids can smell hollow religiosity from a mile away. I'm glad they can. Such a shallow picture of relating to God is never what He had in mind. They are aching for so much more. You can show them what it looks like.
The real value of making sure that kids have plenty of free time is that it teaches them things they could never learn in a textbook.
It's high time we realize that everyone has faults, insecurities, problems, and weak areas. And it’s because we’re people—not because we’re homeschoolers.

Wisdom is one of the most valuable possessions you will ever acquire during your adventure on earth.
A home teacher wanders through a maze of options. It is good to pause and ask, “What is education all about?”
Math and food go together like circumference and pie (that is, uh, pi). The kitchen is the perfect place to cook up a lesson.

The Bible is filled with stories about mothers who struggled with many of the issues still common to mothers of today, and though their voices are long-since silenced in this life, we can still hear from them—if we listen very carefully.
When facing trying times, I think of Aaron and Hur, who held up the hands of Moses while the Israelites battled their enemy (see Exodus 17).
"No school today?" The familiar question is asked by a nurse whom I meet in the elevator.
