I have been homeschooling our children since October of 2005. I am so grateful that a neighbor introduced me to Charlotte Mason and Ruth Beechick methods when we decided to school at home. This placed me on the track of a literature-based approach to schooling.
For us, schooling will have a biblical foundation. When deciding what subjects to include in our curriculum or which books to read I must be convicted that it will help to prepare our children for a future where their individual gifts will flourish and be useful, not only to themselves but to others as well. Borrowing from Mark Twain, I believe we should never let “schooling” interfere with our education.
