Durenda has been homeschooling since 1996 and is a mom of eight (born 1991-2004). She has graduated seven of her children so far with two still at home. She’s been married to Darryl for 31 years and they have six grandkids. Durenda is convinced that home educating is an incredible blessing, but only if we don’t let it hold us hostage to unnecessary expectations and notions of what it “should” look like. The heart of her message is to encourage families to have the courage to think outside the box and take the time to enjoy this amazing journey. She firmly believes that children are naturally curious and if parents keep things simple and unhurried, their kids will become lifelong learners.
Durenda has written The Unhurried Homeschooler, a simple, mercifully short book on homeschooling and Unhurried Grace for a Mom’s Heart: 31 Days in God’s Word. She is the owner/host on her podcast (Durenda Wilson) and website, durendawilson.com.
