How Do I Make This Homeschool Thing Actually "Fly"...

So here you are. A mom, probably in your mid-thirties. It's August, which probably means you are kicking off your family's homeschool year.

Any struggle your child may face, academic or otherwise, Jesus is the answer and the Bible is His love letter to your child/ren. No matter the circumstance, help is available. It isn't hidden away somewhere, locked up & shrouded in mystery. It isn't even all that difficult to obtain. God is not holding out on you. He is not holdi
