Learning to Love the Lord: Homeschooling Coming of Age

Kevin Swanson, who has been a leader in the homeschooling movement for over a decade now, reflects back on the lessons learned and changes made within the homeschooling community. For those of you who homeschool, I think you will find this radio broadcast to be both thought provoking and encouraging.

As this broadcast demonstrates, homeschooling is not perfection, nor is it the entire picture of life. But if nothing else, I hope this broadcast will help you see that homeschooling truly fits within and pushes toward an entire way of life. It is a way of living which opposes the statist, collectivist, or individualist pagan ideologies of our day. Instead, with roots in robust Christian doctrine, it is battling to grow up to familist and personal community. It is at heart an earnest attempt to love the Lord our God and to love our neighbors, not in sentimental ways, but in righteous ways.

Listen in...and I'd love to hear your thoughts.
