As We Finish Our 8th Year of Homeschooling…

Homeschooling for the past 8 years, there are days that I think I know what I am doing but then, there are days that I am not sure if I have done enough. After all these years, if there is one thing I have learned – homeschooling is not for the faint hearted. It is a daily commitment. Just like our relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.

We chose to homeschool our children because we believe in intentional parenting. The only way to influence our young children was to spend time with them and be there with them in their daily activities. I remember thinking that this is the legacy I want to leave my children – that I love them and that we have many memories together as a family.

Now that my children are older, I can finally see the fruits of our early homeschooling years. They have a love of learning, they are inquisitive and they know that God is in-control of everything. I certainly pray that they will always pursue the Lord and develop a deep and abiding relationship with Christ as they continue to grow in their faith.

We have just finished our school year. In a few days, they will be presenting their portfolio to their Family Advisor. It is time to be grateful for the year that has been. This year has not been an easy one – as I have been too busy with activities outside the home. Though I am still thankful for all that we have learned and for the perseverance the children has started to develop.

As I pray, re-evaluate and plan for our next school year, I look forward to what God has in store for us. May we all grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
