Now that fall’s in full swing, the Christmas season is creeping ever and ever closer. As a mom who strives to be practical in every way, I try to steer clear of presents for my kids that are mere “fluff.”
As a Christian homeschooling mom, one query I often get is why I do not allow my children to go to school as their mission field. Their reasoning is typically that the children in public schools may never have been introduced to the love of Christ, and my children just might be the ones to do that.
One thing that most moms have in common, despite differences in any other areas of life, is a lack of confidence. Too often we doubt our abilities to be adequate parents.
Did you ever have one of those days? You wake up in the morning filled with excitement about what your homeschool will look like, and everything goes wrong.
Of all the traps you can fall into as a new homeschooler, there is one that stands out above all the rest as potentially the most destructive and the most joy-draining mistake you can make.
