About this Episode

When the pandemic hit, a tsunami of Hispanic families realized that their dream to give their kids the best education was not taking place in the public school. In this inspiring conversation with Karim Morato, you’ll hear her passion that languages are not barriers, but are connectors, helping us build relationships. As a native Spanish speaker from Guatemala, Karim says homeschooling gave her an unexpected yet remarkable opportunity to raise and educate bilingual children.

Podcast Sponsor

At BJU Press Homeschool, we’re committed to providing children an education from a biblical worldview that is academically sound and challenges them to advance, think critically, and live like Christ. This type of education is not often possible in public schools because of the number of children taught in a classroom, a difference in worldview, and peer and societal pressure to conform. Homeschooling allows parents to instruct and disciple their children without daily fighting messages from an opposing worldview taught in the classroom. And with tuition costs and fees for private schooling or tutoring, homeschooling may be the only option for parents who are concerned for their children’s physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
