Why do you homeschool? Have you articulated and written down your foundational belief that leads you to live out your life with the conviction that this is the best educational choice for your family? Are you prepared to stand by your choice without wavering and give an account for what you know God has called you to do?
Whether you are just now beginning your homeschooling journey, or if you have been at it for a while, but haven’t nailed your 99 theses to the wall, I encourage you to do so as soon as possible. Having a clearly articulated why? will help you to stay focused when the going gets long or bumpy and the winter months entice you to hibernate.
This blog series is going to be focusing on unwrapping what a fitting education is for today’s student. As someone who admires many aspects of the Charlotte Mason method, I have chosen to use several foundational elements of her educational philosophy to help me to bring you some practical tips for everyday life.
