So You Call Yourself a Homeschooler?

Throughout life, we will have many trials and tribulations. This is certain whether we are Believers of Jesus Christ or not. How we handle them depends on our dependence on the Lord.

homeschooling through difficult times

I haven’t seen many posts about homeschooling through depression. It’s not something we like to think about or talk about. I guess most of us don’t like to admit when we’re depressed, and it’s not exactly a cheerful topic to discuss or read about. I know from experience, though, that many of us have suffered from depression, and life doesn’t stop for us just because we’re having a difficult time. I’ve had problems with depression off and on for years. {Read More}

So You Call Yourself A Homeschooler?

Every year since I came to Christ, the Lord has given me a word – one word – as his decree over my life each year. This year {2013} is no exception. After much prayer and time in the Word – God spoke VERY clearly to me that my word this year is FAITHFUL. I was reading my Word when I came across a very familiar scripture in Matthew 25:21, and the word “faithful” spoke to the very depths of {Read More}
