It’s Not All Up To Me

It’s Not All Up To Me

It’s not possible nor reasonable to train or teach every child every thing they need to learn. I don’t need to do it all. Just as God is perfecting in me His work, so He is with the children. I am not perfecting them – He is. God has begun a good work in me and He will continue it until the Day of Christ.

Recommended Reading for Homeschool Mums

Recommended Reading for Homeschool Mums I am often asked what my favourite homeschooling books are. It’s impossible for me to be limited to one or two as I have gleaned something of value from every book I’ve read. However, for the sake of brevity which is not my strong suite, I will limit...

Galatians Bible Study with Teens

Galatians Bible Study with Teens

Meaty Bible study for teens, young adults and new/young believers. This book is not devotional in nature. The concepts it deals with are meaty. But it is written in a way that even children can understand. There’s no reason not to learn doctrine when there are truth-filled, helpful books such as this. Letters to Brian & Daniel will clearly impart wisdom on the nature of God, the nature of man, the sovereignty of God, salvation, grace, faith, law and freedom.

Fearless Parenting

Fearless Parenting

I’m not scared anymore. And it’s beautiful. Freeing. Relaxed. And joyful.Too often I tried to influence my little ones. Tried to control them. I micro-managed them. The lessons God has revealed to me have been the only thing that keep me going at times. It is not hopeless, but it isn’t just about homeschooling- it is so much bigger than that. God wants to reach you, to teach you, to blow your mind with Himself. But sometimes, like with me, He has to get some stuff out of the way so that we will listen. To parent out of freedom and grace is refreshing. It’s totally liberating!

Why public school?

Why public school?   We have always home educated our children, except for a brief foray into GradeK-1 for our eldest daughter. Having said that, let me state that I am not of the view that says ‘everyone-should-homeschool-because- it- is-the-only-way”. I am not against...
