Together we are on a journey of lifelong learning. After spending many afternoons and evenings through the course of 6 years, learning and reteaching concepts to our eldest and having to face the reality of how 6 months of school has broken our youngest’s spirit, the decision was easy. We will homeschool at last! But when you realise this is not just an alternative and that we were called as parents to do as God sees fit, a different kind of peace fill your soul. We are still developing our own way, but each day is a day in the right direction, and when I feel discouraged I know my strength lies in Jesus.

I hope that The Learning Journey will be a place where other homeschooling parents can find encouragement in their journey.
