It is with a great deal of excitement that I launch Pajama School Blog! Pajama School – stories from the life of a homeschool graduate is due to be released in spring, 2009, Lord-willing. My hope is that this blog will be an extension of the book. In other words, an opportunity for me to say everything I thought of after I finished the book, or everything I wanted to say, but couldn’t fit into the flow of the book. 🙂
To be honest, I laughed when a couple of my friends suggested that I start a blog in conjunction with my book. Just what I needed – another blog to keep up with! But the more I thought about it, the more I became attached to the idea. I love homeschooling. No, even more. I would say that I am passionate about homeschooling. I’ve been a homeschool student. I’ve written curricula for homeschoolers. I’ve helped homeschool my younger siblings. I’ve been an active part of our local homeschool community. And someday, I hope and pray that the Lord blesses me with a husband, and children that we can homeschool.
Homeschooling has become much more than an academic alternative for our family. It is a way of life. A beautiful, natural extension of God’s design for the family and the raising up of children who love Him and walk in His ways. But it’s been a process to get to this point. A process filled with lots of failures, lots of tears, and lots of questions. And I am only partway through the process! Every day dawns with the reminder of God’s faithfulness, and is imbued with His patient impartation of truth and understanding that I didn’t have the day before.
My prayer is that Pajama School Blog will serve as an encouragement, inspiration, and helpful resource for all who visit.
