Why did you continue homeschooling?
That’s the question I asked my friends who went through a major crisis.
These were their answers:
“The reason we homeschooled didn’t change with our circumstances.”
“I needed the kids’ help.”
“The absolute flexibility of homeschooling.”
“Sending them to school would create another set of problems.”
“It kept our family close together.”
“I wanted to spend as much time as possible with my kids.”
“God didn’t instruct us to change our path.”
Just because a crisis hits doesn’t mean it’s time to cart the kids off to school. This may the best family time you’ve ever had and the greatest learning experience your kids will ever encounter.
Dear Lord, if anyone reading this is going through a trial, I pray they will be encouraged and strengthened to carry on. May they ever lean into you for comfort, wisdom, guidance and love. May they remain faithful to you and, when it’s all said and done, may they rest in your faithfulness to them.
