To experience all God has for us in our homeschool, we must be willing to focus on HIS way of approaching education, and HIS priorities therein. If our focus is "avoiding gaps" or "preparing for college", we will strive to emulate the traditional school system, without realizing that the school system as we know it was not God's idea, but man's, and as such, is unable to produce the godly fruit we so desire to see in our children. Before going one more step on your path of homeschooling, make sure you are headed in the right direction, which starts with knowing what that is! Because the primary purpose of true education is "preparing us for the works God has prepared beforehand that we may walk in them, " what's "right and best" will be different for each family and each child. A generic, one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter education does not fit all! Broadening our view of "education" and getting a scriptural "God's eye view" of it is essential to making our homeschool experience all that it can be! You'll save hundreds of dollars in unused, misused or overused curriculum, and years of frustration and futility!
