Wise Counsel For The Home Educator
When our family made the decision to start Consider His Works, it was very important to us that our blogs and newsletters would be rooted firmly in God’s word. We are not homeschool “experts” and we don’t think we’ll ever be. We are simply two people who love the Lord and have witnessed first hand the fruit of following him in our endeavor to educate our children.
That said, when you put a website out there with your picture on it, a “contact us” page and a statement that tells people you’re “here to support them”, you kind of have to do that! Part of what we do, although not always intentional, is provide counsel to our readers and those who we are blessed to meet. We are grateful for the folks that find us wise enough to help!
Our purpose is to provide biblical insight, encouragement and point you to Christ. If you are encouraged to endure through a tough season of homeschooling because of our site, Praise God! But remember, behind all of our efforts are two flawed people who are prone to make mistakes. God’s word is sufficient. Through Christ alone, will you be able to do all that he has called you to do for your family. We believe that through our homeschool walk, and most certainly our walk with the Lord, that the Lord will use us to provide wise counsel to you, our readers!
In an age where a large segment of people spend the bulk of their time communicating electronically, we’d encourage you that when it comes to advice for homeschooling, first, find some people that are wise, trustworthy and willing to share their experiences with you. This may take some time and it may be only one or two people that can provide this for you. It is better to have one wise person in your corner than a dozen people who don’t know what they’re talking about. Give it some time. Allow websites and other media forms to be a secondary source of interaction for you. As much as we want to support others with our blog, our words will never be a replacement for personally seeking God’s wisdom, genuine fellowship and communication with like-minded homeschoolers.
Lastly, if all else fails, remember God is the best counselor. Wonderful Counselor is indeed one of his names. May God’s counsel prove to be a source of help for you each and every day.
