Homeschooling is a multi-generational process. We’ll find out more about this on today’s Home School Heartbeat, as host Mike Smith and his guest Sandra Lovelace chat about homeschooling the grandchildren.
Sandra, you and your husband serve families in other countries. I know that you have grandchildren who are being homeschooled right here in the U.S. What part do you play in encouraging this new generation in your family?
Mike, I’m so glad that you asked that question. Most people think that my international work must be the most exciting thing that I do, but being involved in the homeschooling of our own grandchildren is pretty exciting stuff, too. Now, I have to admit that the transition out of the driver’s seat was not an easy one. And when I went to the Lord he showed me the things that I could do for the next generation that were the things that we wished had been done for us. And on a deeper level, God also showed us the rich, wonderful, multi-generational blessing that he has planned for his people. And he also showed us that passing the baton to the next generation means that we need to carry it ourselves in such a way to glorify Him. So there’s no questions that there’s life after homeschooling, the kind of life that Jesus came to give us. Rich and free, full and abundant.
That’s wonderful, Sandra. Thanks for that encouragement, and thanks for joining us this week. And until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
