So I came across a little forum over at Heart of the Matter asking "What homeschooling books do you recommend when you're talking to friends?" I jotted these titles down for my own reference, but thought I'd share them with you in case you're looking for a good Spring read.
Also, amongst the many books Ralph & I bought at a recent marriage retreat. It has seriously changed my perspective on Christian parenting....for the better.
Reminders of thinking about just what we're aiming for in raising our kids.
Reminders of being gracious with your kiddos, not lenient or legalistic.
Reminders to seek God for Wisdom when parenting your kiddos, rather than parenting books or fads...or blogs.
I highly recommend this book, for all parents.
..and now for the long list from Heart of the Matter;
