Another school year is starting to wind down. It’s the time of year that parents all across the globe are starting to ponder what they will do this coming fall. The tug on your heart won’t go away. You *think* you might want to homeschool your children, but you are scared to death.
What if I fail? What if I am a terrible teacher? What if they don’t learn enough? All those nagging and annoying questions start plaguing your mind. If you stop to think about it though, all of those questions are fear based questions. God doesn’t operate out of fear, he only operates out of love. So then who is it that is giving you all those thoughts? Could it be the one who is trying to hold you back from doing the greatest thing in the world for your kids?
What if….the age old question that we need to spin to a positive light! What if your children learn more than you ever thought imaginable? What if your family reaches a new level of closeness with each other and the Lord? What if homeschooling is the most amazing journey your ever decided to take?
See! Just stop and think of all the possibilities. 5 years ago I never imagined that our homeschool journey would be such an amazing part of our life. I knew in my heart it was something we were supposed to do. Sometimes, taking that plunge to begin is the hardest part. Cast the fear aside. Homeschooling, though not always easy, will be the most rewarding journey you will take. So take the plunge and dive on in. The waters great 😉
Where you scared when you first decided to homeschool? What made you overcome that fear?
