As with everything else we do in life, we can lead our homeschools the hard way or the easy way—tensely crawling through the lands of overwhelmed, burned out, anxious, and frantic…or traveling with the confidence and peace that comes with living on purpose. The ups and downs add spice to life. But how often do we suddenly find ourselves feeling drained without knowing why–wondering if it’s all worth it, despairing whether they will ever be ready to face the world, and even harboring second thoughts about teaching them at home, that maybe they would be better off being taught somewhere else? Let’s talk about how to find and remove what’s holding our homeschools back. It’s time to create the amazing learning opportunities that tomorrow’s future leaders deserve.
