I was honored as a Homeschool Mom to be interviewed recently by Jenny from Faith and Good Works. You probably know how passionate I am about life-long learning, so when she asked me to be part of a series where she interviews homeschool Moms to showcase us all, I was tickled.
Here’s an excerpt:
Welcome to another Interview with a Homeschool Mom!
I’d like to introduce you to Shan Walker from The How-to Guru. In her ninth year of home education, she’s a modern wife and mom enamored with old-fashioned ways of living, loving, and teaching.
How many children are you currently homeschooling? How long have you been homeschooling?
I only educate my youngest child as my oldest is graduating from college this summer. We are in our ninth homeschooling year. I never dreamed in a million years that home education would be the plan for us, but God’s direction is better than any path I could ever choose. It is absolutely one of the best decisions we have made.
Have your children always been homeschooled? Why did you decide to homeschool?
We were on track for my daughter to follow the public school trail that her older brother had taken, but during her second-grade year, the Lord will not leave me alone about homeschooling. I had ignored that still small voice for months because I didn’t know even one family that was homeschooling in our area. Not one. I finally had to face the facts that this was God’s plan for her although I had no idea why. I loved our small school system full of wonderful people, plus the fact that I had been tutoring and substitute teaching at her school for years! Surely the Lord was not asking me to leave all of that? Yep, He was. As soon as the husband and I prayed together, we had that peace that surpasses all understanding, and the home education lifestyle started immediately. We committed to praying each and every year for God’s direction, and here we are with our girl in the 10th grade – smart as a whip with more life skills than I ever had as a young woman.
