Summary

Quiet the voices of "not good enough" and step courageously into guilt-free homeschooling

Many homeschool parents have a long-term relationship with self-doubt. "Did I make the right decision?" "Could someone else do this better?" "Am I robbing my kids of something by not sending them to 'regular school'?"  

What if there's a better way? Not a three-step technique or a shiny, new curriculum but a change in perspective that transforms the way you plan, teach, and homeschool?  

Homeschool Bravely teaches you to see homeschooling as a calling, helps you overthrow the tyranny of impossible expectations, and guides you through the common bumps in the road, including how to: juggle school and parenting with toddlers at home; teach a struggling learner; plan with the end in mind; accept your own limitations without feeling guilty; and stay the course even in the face of criticism.  

Reclaim your hope, renew your purpose, and transform your homeschool. Because the truth is: God will use every part of your homeschool, even your fears, faults, and failures, to weave good plans for your kids.

Bumps you full of courage and BRAVERY

Jamie really tells you how it is and how God will always be there to be your crutch. To hold you up when you don’t think homeschooling is for you. She explains her personal struggles and prepares you for what others may say. This book has given me a lot of bravery. And when I am feeling down or in need of a homeschooling boost, I will reread it. Thanks Jamie!

Encouraging and helpful

This provided some practical suggestions for teaching children at home as well as how to navigate potential naysayers with grace. I did enjoy this book for those reasons. However, it did not expose the enemy we are fighting against which is the public school system that surrounds us. There is no need for bravery if there is no enemy. The author provided many helpful Biblical quotes to equip those in this struggle for home education and I am happy for this. However, this author is still attached to many of systems of the public school including the starting and stopping of education in the home during what the public school system calls a "school year" beginning in September and ending in June. There should be a cleansing and destroying of the enemy's past ways of education before one can be built to obey God bravely in home education. There should also be no guilt whatsoever in protecting our children from these government mandated systems. If there is, perhaps any ungodly worship or idolization towards any school, schooling system, or government should be dealt with spiritually. This was not addressed in this book. We cannot carry any past idol worship and love for past schooling systems and governments into our home and expect to be bravely going against these systems at the same time. I do agree with the author that we must teach our children well in the home using Biblical commandments. Yet at the same time we must rid our lives from the past "public school commandments" in order to follow the Biblical commandments more fully. I would have liked to see some practical applications for spiritual cleansing in this with practical prayers we can do at home. Rather, it was a bit too sugary sweet in its overall approach with many quotes basically saying "You can do this!" without getting really gritty about the demons we're really fighting against. I must admit I did find the quotes and verses encouraging. But I wanted it taken to a deeper level spiritually and this book didn't do that for me. Overall, I was very happy to have found and listened to this book and would still suggest it to other moms.

wonderful encouragement ❤

This book was the balm of encouragement my chapped heart needed. I was struggling with whether or not I should put my kids in public school, when I know I'm called to homeschool. This book was a 5 hour reminder of all the ways God has called and equipped me. If you're on the fence, or burnt out, or having a bad homeschooling year, you need this book! Also, the author is pleasant to listen to.

Speechless.

I believe I will be adding this one to my personal library personally. This is a book you grow with and through, a book you take quotes from and highlight them saying them throughout the day. This is a book you pass along to your children, their children. This is a good for your soul book. Absolutely inspiring & so very encouraging!

So encouraging to the new homeschooling parent

I loved this book. It is deeply encouraging, filled honesty and teaching with scripture to back it up. The narration was easy to listen to and I think finished the book in just a few days. I plan to reread/re-listen for sure.
