I am a self-confessed book addict, with a growing collection and a library with very little space left for future purchases.
Since I was young, I proclaimed the motto, “Knowledge is power” to be synonymous with “Reading is knowledge.” To this day I believe that no matter what your circumstances are, you are far better of if you have access to books. I not only love to read books though I also love to write them. As a little girl, I made my own little storybooks, complete with illustrations and dreamt of becoming a famous writer. After school, I chose an entirely different route and entered the design and architecture field. As a practising interior designer, I also facilitated interior design and other courses at a well known interior design school in Cape Town. It was here that I had my first encounter with curriculum writing and thoroughly enjoyed it. As a homeschooling mom, I realised there are many possibilities for writing, specifically for our daughter who still receives her teaching in Afrikaans. That is however not where my passion for books stops, I am an avid reviewer of homeschooling curriculum, fictional and non-fictional texts. You will be able to follow my reviews here, on my social media pages as well as on Amazon, Takealot, Loot, and Master Books.
The first book I would like to share with you is the go-to book when self-doubt creeps up on one, especially as a homeschooling parent you might feel as if you constantly have to explain yourself and your motives.
*This review was specifically done for Master Books, and I received a complimentary digital copy.
As parents we often doubt ourselves, and I think more so when you homeschool your children. This book has given me renewed hope and made me realise that the vision we started our homeschooling journey with is right and just in God’s eyes. After reading Teach Them Diligently, I found a sense of excitement because tomorrow will provide yet another opportunity to follow God’s guidance as set out in Proverbs 22:6.
Leslie Nunnery provides parents with an easy-to-read-get-back-to-basics guide and directs them towards scripture. The scripture Leslie refers to are all scripture we apply and re-read when we feel overwhelmed in our calling as parents.
I believe this book is an excellent source for any parent focused on their calling by God as parents and will help to put the role as parents in the right perspective again.
It is a book parents can refer to many times after reading it, or if you only recently became a parent, it will direct you towards the preparation needed for the responsibilities that are outlined in their parenthood journey.
I recommend this book for your reading list if you are a parent or soon-to-be and more so a homeschool parent; who wishes to lead their children to God.
Teach them diligently – Raising Children of Promise by Leslie Nunnery is available through Master Books, Amazon.com and Christianbook.com
