A Few Things I Love About Not Going Back to School...

A Few Things I Love About Not Going Back to School:

1.  Missing the bus
2.  Missing the socialization
3.  Christ in the "classroom"
4.  The world is our classroom.
5.  Really knowing my children.
6.  My children love to read.
7.  Writing comes naturally to kids who love to read.
8.  Education happens outside typical subjects
9.  Lots and lots of choices... and we make them.
10.  Finding products that make learning fun- even Latin!

and my personal Autumn and Winter favorite-
Cuddling up on the sofa with cocoa, slippers, and a good read-aloud.

Whether your children are going back to school or not, trust in the Lord and pray.  He is able to protect the children whom you have entrusted to Him. 

"There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

Please don't think that you're not a good parent if you don't homeschool.  Homeschool parents have to depend just as heavily on God as parents who choose other educational avenues for their children.  Love God, love your children, and teach them His ways.

My little sermon for today~

God bless you all,


  1. Yes, we all need to give it all to the Lord each and every day. Without Him, I would definitely fail.

    I really enjoyed your list. :)

  2. What a great list! I do love those cozy read alouds!

    I hope your school year is abundantly blessed!


  3. Love your list! Stopping by from the Blog Hop!

  4. Great sermon, Laura! :-D I loved your list. Thanks for sharing this bit of encouragement on my link-up this week!

  5. (not sure if this is a double post...I thought for sure I typed this already)

    Great sermon, Laura! I love your list. Thanks for linking this bit of encouragement up on my link-up!

  6. Well said. Like my nephew would say, when he was very young, "life is school.". My active homeschooling days are mostly behind me now, as my youngest just started community college in high school, but I always tell all the warn out parents around November, "mornings are a lot easier when you don't have to get your kids up to go to school.". Thanks so much for sharing your perspective today. I enjoyed reading.

  7. Love your list and agree whole heartedly! Angels to you and happy healthy school year.


Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
