Christ in regards to one’s physical, social, emotional, and spiritual
By limiting as many worldly distractions as possible, we are able
to really focus on what matters. Character development becomes
something our family works on almost daily, as well as learning
to focus on the strengths of the child, while cultivating growth in
their weak areas.
Of course there are many days when home education is a struggle; attitudes are negative, everyone seems easily distracted, and the
day is just not as productive as I would have hoped. Yet, for all of
the hard work, money, time, and resources I have given to educating my children, I have been able to witness the success of watching
them learn how to read for the first time, understand the basics of
mathematics, delve into history books that fascinate their minds,
create art masterpieces that challenge them beyond their limitations, and see the excitement of their facial expressions that seem
to say, “I really enjoy learning”—for this I am grateful, and it was
worth it! Enjoy the journey!
