About this Episode

In part 2 of our conversation with the inspirational Cassandra DeLeon, mother of ten, we delve deeper into the world of homeschooling and the challenges of nurturing a large family. Hear how Cassandra’s approach to schedules, routines, and rhythms helped develop children who are self-motivated, self-disciplined, independent learners. And all of this in a 1200-square-foot home! Experience the joys of Music Day and the importance of self-care. And don’t miss the vital discussion about what happens when a homeschooling mom hits rock-bottom—and how she recovers.

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.
