There is a lot of teacher in me. . .
*I studied elementary education
at Biola University.
*I taught first grade. (loved teaching kids to read)
*I homeschooled for lots of years.
*My spiritual gift is exhortation, one
of the teaching gifts.
*I love teaching women - to study God's
word and how to organize their kitchen. (etc.)
*And, I love school supplies.
As parents across the country are preparing for school to begin, I want to kick off a short series on education. As adults and parents (hopefully in that order), I believe we can each choose the best education for our kids. (Yeah for intentional parenting.) And, fortunately, there are a lot of great choices. This short series will reflect our family's choice . . . homeschooling.
I love being a mom. For me, there is a very fluid line between parenting, homeschooling and discipling our daughters. In some ways, they are the same. Our friend Louie, used to say, "all parents homeschool."
(Who taught you how to tie your shoes?)
15 Lessons from a (retired) Homeschool Mom will include specifics to home education, but some of it reflects our parenting philosophy, as well. I am hoping that you can enjoy and profit from this, whether you homeschool or not.
Come back tomorrow and we will get started.
