But is it worth the effort? Absolutely!

 

While it’s not always easy, I have found homeschooling to be well worth the effort!

 

I have also discovered the joyful moments along the way to be of great reward as well as the inspiration to continue on.

~ The joy of laughter as it echoes from older sisters who share in a lunch break or a walk on a sunny day. Friendship runs deep over the years.

The joy of an afternoon novel shared with older students. Love, loss, universal emotions, and shared experience are revealed through talented authors.

~ The joy of weekly trips to the library bring delight to children as they return piles of books and go in search of new ones.

~ The joy of time to answer deep questions of life and faith when they arise throughout the days.

~ The joy of His peace as the Lord Jesus settles my doubts and fears along the homeschooling journey. He gives me direction, ability, and homeschool joy over and over again.

 

Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.

~ Proverbs 16:3
