About this Episode

Zan Tyler and Todd Wilson get real about the ups and downs of family life, marriage, and homeschooling. Todd opens up about tough times in his marriage and parenting, but also emphasizes the value of not giving up. Zan and Todd share wisdom from the Bible and talk about finding strength in vulnerability and pushing through the hard times. Every family has good times and bad. That’s why learning to navigate the craziness of family life and homeschooling with grace and faith is an important life skill!

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.
