Work…Homeschool???

I had to repost this article I just got in my email box a couple days ago. I have several friends who are thinking of going back to work and giving up on homeschooling. So I when I saw this article I thought I had to share it with everyone. Enjoy!

Years ago, homeschooling or working was pretty much an either/or situation. Yet a growing number of families are discovering that even if mom has to (or chooses to) work, they can still homeschool.

Is it easy? No. But working and putting your children into school wouldn't be easy either. And when others don't homeschool, they don't realize that their suggestions that we "help the family" by getting a job outside of the home and put the kids into school, is not an option sometimes.

I've had many people suggest that I could make my life a lot easier if I would only put the kids in school instead of trying to work and homeschool. But they don't realize that I'm homeschooling as a conviction and that I love it. I love being with my children all day, every day, and that the other sacrifices that we make so that I can homeschool the kids are worth it to us.

I used to be one of the few in my homeschool group that worked in addition to homeschooling, but a growing number of moms are doing it now too. Some work from home on the computer, some clean houses or babysit, some are nurses or speech therapists, some help their husbands in their businesses. Some work part-time. Others work full-time. All of them have had to find ways to juggle who is home with the kids, chores, household responsibilities, lesson plans, and more.

If finances are tight at your house and it's starting to look like you may need to take on some extra work to help make ends meet, I just want to encourage you that you CAN do that and still homeschool. The two are not mutually exclusive. It takes some creative planning, everybody in the family working together as a team, and a whole lot of God's grace, but it can be done.

God's ways don't always make sense to the world, but you just have to be obedient to what He has called you to do, and trust in Him. He cares for you and your family, and He will provide all that you need–including the energy and time to homeschool your children!

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

Enjoy every minute!

  • You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I discover this matter to be actually some thing that I believe I would by no means understand. It appears too complex and very broad for me. I’m searching forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
