About this Episode

In part 2 of “When Homeschooling Is Hard,” Nancy and Zan emphasize the importance of vision—remember that your children are a gift from God and it is a privilege to raise them for His glory. The beauty of homeschooling is the flexibility it allows and the togetherness it promotes—whether it is working in the kitchen together, doing volunteer work together, or playing and studying together. Letting your children have time to create, explore, build, imagine, and play outdoors all contribute to academic success. Persevere and remember that God is faithful! He fills in the gaps, blesses our work, opens doors for our children, and constantly cares for us.

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.
