One of the most unanticipated, sometimes overwhelming, but always good aspects of educating our children at home can be the amount of sin we constantly confront- not just in our children- but in ourselves.

Grab a cup and join the conversation!
Hayley and I are diving right into the meaty, scary topic of homeschooling high school! In this inaugural episode of Homeschooling with Grace, I have a slew of questions for how Hayley is utilizing Tapestry of Grace in her homeschool with her high school Sophomore and 6th grader, along with her future plans for ToG, how she organizes her year, and how she overcame her own objections to stepping into this often daunting curriculum. I’ll also share my insights as a first time user of ToG with a high school freshman.
This first episode is a big one (almost an hour long!). We recommend that you download it and listen in bites. We hope you’ll enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of our talk, ignore our kids in the background, and be blessed by Hayley’s wisdom and experience!
Let’s get to it!Read More
