I think one of the hardest challenges new homeschoolers face is letting go of how it "should" be. If I have one prayer for new homeschoolers, it is peace. Peace from struggling to find the "right" curriculum for a 5-year-old. Peace from worrying about how to "schedule" their time. Peace from the fear that they will "miss" covering a subject sufficiently. I think public school has created a culture that has damaged many parents. It has minimized their sense of importance, and their confidence. To all of you just starting out - You've got this!!! It will be ok!!! And may you feel the love and peace of The Lord surround you as you answer His call!!
