I am grateful that you are a homeschool mama. What a natural thing it is that you are doing. Don’t let anyone tell you that you are doing something strange. Mamas have been teaching their children at home since Eve taught Cain and Abel to walk and talk. What could be more natural than a child learning what it means to feel safe by crawling into his mama’s lap? Or a young girl learning what the most important things are by watching how her mama spends her time? Or a son learning what kind of woman he wants to marry by watching his mama kiss his daddy?
I encourage you to stop for a moment and be grateful that you are a homeschool mama in the wintertime — and all the time — because God is the One Who made up the class list. He’s the one Who assigned what teacher would teach which students. He assigned your children to you.
It’s great to be a homeschool mama because even though God loves your children more than you do; out of all the possible mamas in the world, He gave your particular children to you. His wisdom is perfect — and He chose you.
This means that out of all the people and programs and co-ops and teachers and dual enrollment classes and coaches and tutors in your community and in your area and in the whole world, you are the most qualified to train your children.
Let me say that again: You are the most qualified to train your children.
God trusts you with this.
And you can trust Him.
Hear, my son, your father’s instruction
And do not forsake your mother’s teaching;
Indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head
And ornaments about your neck.
