Why I homeschool

I was over on Raising Clovers and I have been watching her youtube channel for a little while now and she had made the statement that you should write down why you homeschool.  I had never thought of actually writing it down, just is strange for me since I write EVERYTHING down.  Either I share on my blog or facebook or I write in my journal so anyway I thought it was a neat idea so here it goes. 

The first reason I choose to homeschool our two beautiful children is I love them very much and wanted them to know and love the Lord first and foremost.  I knew the public school would teach them everything else but that one central and most important thing.

The second reason is I did not want the influences of others impressing their values and their world views on my children.  They would get that enough when they were adults and I wanted them grounded on a firm foundation.  

Once public school kicked God out of school.  God's children have no business being where God is not welcome.  Your children are not to be put in the school as a missionary.  They will be turned toward the world rather then the world being changed by them.  Our children are impressionable and growing.

The bible also has a few words to say about teaching your children.  Deuteronomy 11:19 "And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." 

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”  Proverbs 22:6
