Strength and Encouragement for your Homeschool Journey

Hi! I’m Patti Wright.  Together with my husband, I have homeschooled for 30 years!  I finished my homeschool career last Spring when our eighth child graduated from high school. I am currently writing blog posts on 30 of the things I learned in my 30 years of homeschooling. I hope you will join me!

The day I brought our children home from school to homeschool them was not the day we decided on a mission or planned a strategy!  Beyond the, “I know I should homeschool our children,” and now starting to teach them to read, I did not know what I was doing! The...

My Story: How It All Began

Thirty years ago I found myself on my knees beside my side of the bed pleading for God’s direction. I had no idea how soon he would lead our family into a new 30-year journey. Our children were ages 5, 4, 1-½, and newborn.  My husband had just taken a traveling job...
