Here’s what these two lovely ladies have to say about this new ministry:
“The mission of Intentional Homeschool is to encourage mothers to cultivate a love for learning and exploring within the hearts of their children from birth to adulthood. Learning does not begin when we send our children off to school or buy their first curriculum for homeschooling. The opportunity to guide, educate, inspire, encourage, and exhort our children, in not only normal development but in the ways of the Lord, begins the second they enter this world. We believe children are far more capable of grasping the concepts of the Bible far sooner than we give them credit for.
At Intentional Homeschool, it is our desire to provide refreshment for the soul partnered with practical tips and resources to make your homeschool a place where it is impossible to not think about God.”
Not Just for Homeschoolers
We want to encourage you to see your home as a place of learning no matter your views on how to “formally educate” your children. We believe this site will be applicable to those planning to homeschool, as well as those planning to send their children to public school. We believe Intentional Homeschool is applicable because, as parents, we are commanded by God to instruct our children. We want to encourage you to intentionally pursue the hearts of your children, instructing them in the way they should go, no matter how you choose to educate formally.
I’m really excited about this launch because I personally struggle with instructing my children.
I feel like I’m really putting myself out there to say this, but even though I wholeheartedly love my children and want more, I am not, by nature, a “little kid” person. I don’t naturally think of games to play–and I don’t have a “crafty” bone in my body.
You’re more likely to find me explaining to my 4 year old that salmon contains good omega-3s for brain development (yep, that was an actual conversation we had over lunch today).
In the little kid arena (which as the mother of a newborn, 2 year old and 4 year old–that’s my season), I need help.
And that’s where sites like Intentional Homeschool come into play.
