You Can Absolutely Remove the Roadblocks of Stress and Bravely Deliver an Engaging High-Value Spiritual Homeschool Education For Your Precious Children!
Another book on homeschooling. . . is it really necessary?
Having witnessed the very common trend recently of committed homeschoolers giving up and putting their children back into schools, the answer is, yes. We need this little book and others like it to help encourage and strengthen Christian families out there who are homeschooling, were homeschooling, or would be homeschooling if only the task did not seem so formidable. . .
Christians who feel they should be teaching their own children at home get busy reading books full of glowing accounts of the homeschooling lifestyle. Yet when they glance up from the page they see families they know dropping out, giving up homeschooling in defeat, and their enthusiasm begins to get the shakes. They hear tales of stress, and the phrase “homeschool burnout” is on everyone’s lips.
Even worse, they may see that some children who have graduated from homeschooling are just as worldly-minded as the other children in their fellowship, so why put themselves through all the stress of being a home educator?
Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way. Your homeschool journey can be a spiritual joy and delight for both parent and child. Written by a mother of twelve who has homeschooled for the past 26 years, this practical book will alert you to the issues to avoid, and the ones to embrace, so that you too can remove stressfulness from your homeschool, . . . and your life.
Christian Homeschooling Minus the Stress by Sue Rumsley is an exceptional, knowledgeable and informative guide that’s main focus is helping homeschool families everywhere achieve successful, stress-free learning experiences using fundamental techniques. Author, Sue Rumsley, mother of 11 children, introduces and emphasizes the effective use of self-encouraging efforts, and most importantly: always keeping God at the center. This easy to read handbook is a must-have for any Christian homeschooling family.
