I really CRAVE the experience of home-educating my children: teaching them good character, academics and solid Biblical principles. I want my children to both be raised up to be the men of God that He desires, and yet allow them to learn to discern which is good from the teaching they receive outside of my influence. This is hard for me, as occasionally I find myself hoping that they will never be outside of my influence! Really! Do I think that my influence is better than that of God?!?! So MUCH I have to learn!
Thank you Lord, for Your hand on my children. Help me to know when I should teach them, and when I should step back and let You teach them. Amen.
