All I can do is tell you our quick story of what happened when I didn’t want to homeschool but God said, “Do it!”
You see, my oldest went all the way through public school and graduated. I tutored many of his schoolmates as a volunteer when they were younger. By the time my daughter was at the elementary school, I was a substitute teacher there and adored it. I love our local public school teachers and staff. God calls us each to follow His path, whether it’s what we planned or not …..
I know some people in our small, Mayberry town thought I’d lost my mind. I know they wondered why in the world we had decided to homeschool our kiddo. What’s funny is that I fought the whole idea tooth and nail from the start myself. I mean, we had moved to our small, southern town for the school system. Our oldest went all the way through graduation and my intent was for my youngest to do the same.
I was a reading tutor and a substitute teacher at her school, for crying out loud, and a big question in my mind was definitely, “What if people thought we were super-weird?” So why in the world did my husband and I decide to go through with home education even though we didn’t know a soul in our area doing the same?
Plain and simple …..
The Lord made me do it.
