Ok, so I know I shouldn’t post reviews on books before I am done reading, BUT…
I really wanted to share this one.
I have been struggling with homeschooling, kinda on a teeter totter, or maybe more like a merry go round.
When I start getting discouraged, I try to find a book that will renew my commitment to homeschooling, even if its not what I want to do at the time.
This particular book, I have actually had for a long time, and I would say several years. And I am just now reading it. Mostly because now that my wonderful mom gave me her kindle, I know can read all those ebooks on it instead of the computer where it hurts my eyes amongst other things of getting the time or the want to to sit in front of a computer, which I don’t like to do. Which is why I don’t like the new digital magazine from TOS. Sorry! I love a good hard copy but I know, they have to save money too. And to be honest I was very tired of all the ad’s in the magazine any ways. But I love TOS and they have great resources. They are truly an inspiration to homeschoolers.
But back to my topic…
This particular ebook is very inspiring. It is called: Are Public Schools an Option for Christian Kids?
(click on title to go to webpage)
This books is a free e-book so please go download it right now!
I am going to copy and paste the description on to this page in a moment for you to read. It has several authors and lots of information. They even suggest some other reading, which I may just pick up soon. I need lots of encouragement right now since I am in need of curriculum and no way to purchase any. I have been grasping at straws with what to do for my girls which is why I am very discouraged right now. Like many parents right now who don’t have jobs, money is tight and we can’t afford much, if any, curriculum. And for those of us who are not good at making up our own, we can get pretty discouraged and start feeling not worthy or capable of doing the job that God gave us.
So here is a description of the book from The Old Schoolhouse Store website. Please visit their site and get this FREE ebook. Who doesn’t like FREE when it comes to homeschooling. Especially free high school stuff as everything seems to be for younger kids.
