Alex & Ashley
Over twenty-five years ago Homeschooling Today magazine was founded by homeschooling parents with a vision to encourage and assist homeschooling families.
Today, that vision continues with homeschool graduates at the helm. We are staunch supporters of homeschooling because we’ve seen the value of what this choice has to offer. In our homes, it was enjoyable, filled with learning that lasted, and built on the foundation of relationship. We are now continuing this legacy of freedom in learning with our own children.
Parents, we believe in the power of influence you have as you walk with God, to provide everything your children need to fulfill their destinies. We believe that homeschoolers are uniquely fitted to become world changers. Because they’re used to doing things differently. Having been shown the true value of learning and what they’re capable of, these children will look at the world with eyes to help, lead, problem solve, and display a depth of character that reflects the convictions of their faith.
This is what our children are called to do. But it won’t happen if we walk in fear. It won’t come to pass if we fail to break loose of chains like tradition and inaccurate expectations. This is a call to arms. Your battlefield is a landscape sprinkled with snares. The snares of comparison, trends, false expectation, fear of man, feelings of inadequacy.
Our mission is to come alongside you with encouragement and practical help, to remind you that we’re in this together and to help you see past the present trials into the reality of your true calling, equipping your children to be the remarkable people God created. Whether you are homeschooling for a season of life or the years to come, this movement can be a catalyst for courage. It will be through our ability to shed fear and embrace courage that will enable our children to do the same!
Join us as we cast aside mediocrity and say we will enjoy this time with our families, we will let go of fear and take hold of courage. We choose to homeschool boldly!
