Joyfully Homeschooling

Nov 16, 2018

Welcome to episode 34 of the Joyfully Homeschooling podcast. In today’s episode, in preparation for the holidays, we are going to chat about the reasons we should all be thankful for homeschooling.

As you all know Homeschooling, is something love it! BUT, when we first started homeschooling, I honestly didn’t know how long we would do it. I knew it was best for our family at that moment, but in the back of my head, I knew we had other options and may not homeschool long term. However, as I shared earlier this season we are in it for the long haul, yes, even through high school! The truth is I am SO thankful for the blessing that it is to our family and these blessings can be tied back to three areas. Faith, Health and Freedom.

I am breaking these three areas down and as we enter into the holiday season I highly recommend you take the time to reflect on your blessings as well.
