It can be so easy to lose sight of why we are homeschooling in the first place. Ruth Adams, a second generation homeschooler, reminds us to keep the proper perspective as we homeschool our children and ask ourselves what is really important in the long run.
What we talked about
- Remember the homeschool pioneers. It can be easy to forget the fight homeschool pioneers fought to legalize homeschooling in all fifty states. It is important to be grateful for their fight and be vigilant so we do not become complacent.
- Homeschooling has been a tool God has used to train her to be who he wants her to be. As a homeschool student and now as a homeschool mom, Ruth has learned the joy of serving, how to be a leader, how to be accountable to God, and respect for others.
- Ultimately, it is up to God. While she does her best and makes the best decisions she can, Ruth recognizes that her children’s future is ultimately in God’s hands.
What advice would you give to a new homeschool mom?
Seek God first and focus on your relationship with him.
God is refining you and will equip you every step of the way on your homeschool journey.
