Why homeschooling?

"Home educating is a thankless job.  My husband wants me to do it and has the most invested in this project but even he forgets to throw me a parade very night."

"Home educating is very tiring. That is the thing. I just get tired. Tired of grading papers; tired of listening; tired of answering; tired of picking up; tired of holding, tired of wiping; tired of reading; tired of fixing; tired of correcting; tired of correcting again; tired of answering again; tired of reading; tired of listening again....I am so .....so....so tired..."

"Most importantly, and perhaps I don't say this often enough, my husband and I have come to the conviction that God's people should train their own children."

"Teaching my own children is a calling.  I am called of GOD to be the mother of my children (1 Timothy 2:15). Keeping my home, including training my children and managing our family's resources, is a responsibility on which our testimony hangs (Titus 2:3-5). This is not a task to be taken lightly. My very GOD has given it to me.  "

These are words written by Lea Ann Garfais and taken from her article in March/April issue of my Home School Enrichment magazine.   I was touched by her article and thought it had some great points and wanted to share them with you all.
