Homeschooling With Joy

Frieda Thiessen

Serious home educators spend many hours of diligent effort to make their homeschools a success. They do it for the children. They do it for God. They plan; they prepare; they coach and teach; they pray; they struggle. And on top of that they still have all their other roles: bread-winner, homemaker, husband, wife, and more.

It's no wonder homeschooling sometimes becomes overwhelming. The once lofty goals grow dim and the focus turns to survival. If that's where you are, or what you want to avoid, Homeschooling With Joy offers encouragement and practical help.

Homeschooling With Joy is a collection of articles by home educators who have learned valuable lessons that can benefit your life and your homeschool. Yes, a father can be more than a bumbling addition to home education. He can provide leadership and nurture, help keep his wife's load manageable, and guide the fulfillment of the Great Commission in his homeschool. No, a mother doesn't have to be an exhausted martyr. She can manage the household, see that everyone is adequately fed and clothed, younger children cared for, and the students educated, all without neglecting her marriage.

This inspiring book provides answers to the difficult challenges of homeschooling, so that with the work, there is joy!
