About this Episode
As Mother Teresa received the Nobel Peace Prize, she was asked, “What can we do to contribute to world peace?” Her reply, “Go home and love your family.” In this vital conversation with Mike Donnelly, attorney and homeschool dad of seven, we discuss how homeschooling builds strong families, which builds strong churches, strong cultures, and strong countries. We must remember our history and fight the battle to preserve homeschool freedom for our children’s children.

Mentioned in this Episode
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.
