I think I’ve written about the reasons why we’ve chosen to homeschool too many times. Maybe, it’s my way of being in constant pursuit for a better way to raise up, parent, and educate our children. Of coping with the challenges of this unheard of lifestyle. Of convincing myself time and again that we did make the right decision. Whether those reasons are personal ones, or some articles I agree with or that have inspired me, you may read some of them (or all!) here.
But what really is the HEART of our homeschooling? Is it really all about academics and education? Despite it going against the norm and surprising us with difficulties we aren’t prepared for, why are we still doing it?
It is God’s command.
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
We have become closer. We have become stronger.
Homeschooling is not something we decided on to be different from the rest. We feel that it was and is a calling which need a response, an action, and a commitment. It is a personal choice and a decision.
