Now, that my friends, is a good question.

Why do we homeschool?

Let me count the ways?

Ha ha ha.

Seriously.  That’s a tough question.

  1. We homeschool because we believe God has commanded us to teach our kids of His love from morning to night.  (Deut. 6:5-7)
  2. We homeschool because we believe God has commanded us to train up our children.  I don’t think He meant until they were 5 and then pass them off to someone else to train.  (Proverbs 22:7)
  3. We homeschool because we don’t want a different stranger every year to teach our children.  Jason and I know our children far better than anyone else.  So why pass them off to someone we don’t know for an entire year?
  4. We homeschool because we don’t want the government to indoctrinate our children with their beliefs.  We want to teach them about worldly beliefs in a controlled environment and show them, Biblically, why they’re wrong.
  5. We homeschool them because we don’t think they have to grow up in a classroom with thirty other children their age to be good, upstanding citizens.  They don’t need the bad influences.  They need the guidance of their God, mom and dad;  not every Tom, Dick and Harry out there.
  6. And finally, we homeschool them because we just flat out think that is best for our family.

Amen.
