“Except the LORD build the house, they
labour in vain that build it” (Psalm 127: 1).
Here’s our story. More than 30 years ago, before we had children, my husband and I worked in Sunday school ministry for seven years.
We taught Christian children that were pri-
vate schooled, public schooled, and home-
schooled. We noticed major differences in the
homeschooled children. They respected us,
Many years, and eight extremely differ-
ent children later, we are still sold on home
Because I believe the why is more impor-
tant than the how of home education, I’d
like to start there. The introduction verse
reminds us that if we begin this homeschool
building on our own, without a foundation
built by and on God, it will be in vain. If you
are considering homeschooling, or have
started already, your sincere desire is that
your children do well, and that their educa-
tion—and your instruction—is successful.
So, let’s get it right—right at the start.
I believe that whatever we do in life should
be built on the foundation of God’s Word
If you are considering homeschooling . . . let’s get it right—right at the start.
