This past year, specifically the past school year, has been the worst year ever. If I were a new home educator, I probably would’ve given up months ago.
Fortunately, I have 21 years of experience on my side. I know that problems don’t have to be fixed right here and right now, and that often it takes time to see results. I am qualified and I know I can do this, despite the fact that my family is saying the opposite.
What makes me qualified? I love my daughter more than anyone else on this planet. The only one that loves her more than I do is Jesus. I will do what it takes. I will scour the planet for the answers, find them, and put their practices into place. Just as Jesus will leave the 99 to go after the one stray sheep, find it, and carry it home, I will do what is necessary to find what my daughter needs and see that those needs are met.
Watching a child struggle is heartbreaking. Searching and searching for help and not finding it can be even more heartbreaking. Thankfully, God has led us to the people we need one by one. God is great, loving, and kind; and with Him we will succeed.
How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, Whose hope is in the LORD his God, Psalm 146:5
