Knowing your why for homeschooling makes everything else easier — it shows you what to focus on and helps you know what is not important. So if you go back to your own family’s why, you will likely see a subject or two that jumps out at you. This is your own foundational subject, the emphasis that will shape everything else you teach. And trust me, that makes things so much easier!
How does that work? Take a look at how our central courses frame our homeschool each year, each semester, every week. Rain or shine, sickness and health, good times and undercaffeinated zombie days, we can have success by staying true to our focus.
No matter what path God has for each of my children, no matter the careers and ministries and lifestyle they each fulfill, they still have the same two most important duties: love God and love others. Work hard at both. My husband and I knew that saturating them with the truths of God’s Word and the records of His dealing with mankind was the best possible preparation for those duties.
