God has called me to encourage and equip ALL MOMS, no matter where your children receive their education.  I know that circumstances are unique for every family.  Even though I've been a homeschool mom for 24 years, my ministry is not limited to just homeschoolers. That being said, I do get a lot of questions about homeschooling, and this week I decided to answer your questions.  I thought I'd give you a little peek into my heart and mind on my choices about education for my kids in episode 99 of the Practically Speaking MOM Podcast. Here's the questions we'll be covering in Episode 99 of the Practically Speaking MOM Podcast:Why do I not like the word, "Homeschooling" and what do I like instead?How does Homeschooling differ from other options?What are the PROS & CONS  of homeschooling and what do I do about the cons if I decide to homeschool?How can I manage my littles when I need to teach the older kids?  Val will share SEVEN tips on this question!!!What should my homeschool schedule look like?How can I help my children reach MASTERY in their different subjects?No matter what education option you choose, in this episode you will find some academic helps for all all of you!  Such as, learning some skills for helping your student to achieve MASTERY of each of their subjects.  Doesn't it feel like we are constantly making difficult decisions about our children's lives.  We wrestle with each choice. We stress. We pray.  We just so badly want to  choose well in our parenting. Where your kids go to school and how they get their education  is just one of the many ways you strive to do what is best for your child.  None of us are cookie-cutter families.
