Though discipleship is not a homeschool issue I have a desire to continue to encourage those families to choose to homeschool.  There are different challenges and different contexts that homeschooling families have to consider as they raise their children.  I am equally sure that there are unique situations that families who send their kids to school need to address – but I can’t help in that arena particularly.

So sprinkled through family and parenting blogs you will find thoughts pertaining to homeschooling.  These are the most read homeschool posts for 2016.
