The 2008-2009 school year has been a major milestone in the life of our family. It was just this year that we began walking a journey that we began step-by-step years ago.
For some time I have considered when to share with my readers a little more of what is going on with our family. Now seems like a great time because we have a fun Giveaway going on that I will share shortly.
Already this has been an exciting Homeschooling semester. And we are ready to whisper it from the rooftops - She Homeschools! Truly more accurately "We" Homeschool because I must say Mountain Man is playing an outstanding role as our Principal, Coach, and awesome Science Guy.
Homeschooling our twin, second grade sons has been an awesome blessing to our entire family. It's nice we all wanted to embark upon this journey, six months into it and I can tell you so far we have all l.o.v.e.d it. We have been incredibly blessed in following the road the Lord has led us to walk. It has been such a joy to be with our children and teaching them day-to-day.
Eventually we will definitely be sharing resources, ideas, and more specifics in the days ahead.
For now, guess what, I have a great opportunity to attend a Whole Hearted Conference. The Clarksons have written many books regarding, family, homeschooling, etc. Here's a bit from their website about them:
Since its birth in 1994, Whole Heart Ministries has been dedicated to helping Christian parents raise wholehearted children who will live for Christ. The Clarksons have served in full-time ministry for over 25 years, both as single adults and as a married couple, in overseas missions, discipleship ministries, and in church ministry. Whole Heart Ministries brings to full expression the convictions and messages they have cultivated and taught since the late 1980s.
This is for families, not just homeschoolers. The Clarksons have agreed to participate in "Win It Wednesday" with a Giveaway of their book Educating the Whole Hearted Child.
This book is phenomenal. I cannot tell you enough about it. There are so many pracitcal ideas that they share that you can incorporate right into your family life. "Educating the Whole Hearted Child" was instrumental in our understanding home education.
Best of luck to one fine winner.
