When we started homeschooling, we were very much products of government schooling. I was most concerned about academics. I wanted my son to be smarter than any other little kid on the block. As a college graduate, I was confident I could accomplish this, and so began our homeschooling journey.

However, as I began to attend homeschooling conventions, read homeschooling books, and listen to those who had traveled this road before me, I realized there was more to this homeschooling thing than academics and educational pride…ahem…I mean excellence. I began to see that this was an opportunity to pass on our faith to our children in tangible ways. I realized I could weave Christianity into everything we did all day long. I realized I would be available to my children to answer those tough faith questions.
