About this Episode

Sometimes the decision to teach your children at home can be more difficult than the homeschooling itself. Join us as Michelle Staton shares with Zan the hurdles she faced in deciding whether to homeschool. When she finally made the plunge to homeschool, she discovered how much she values the focused academics, healthy socialization, and the robust community her children experience. Michelle has also discovered the benefit of having grandparents involved, and the ability to make service a key part of their lives—and she has never looked back.

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.
