Do We Have to Give Up Our Dreams?
by Michelle Painter, Crosswalk.com Contributing Writer (Aug. 8, 2011)
Several months ago, I heard a surprising comment that indicated that home educating meant that we, as mothers and fathers, had to sacrifice our own dreams to provide the home schooling opportunity to our children. Since that time, I have pondered the question, “Does home schooling really mean we have to give up our dreams?” So, in examining this issue, I sought answers from the Bible. Though studying, I’ve been blessed with four important revelations that encouraged my own spirit regarding any former dreams of my own. I pray that they encourage you as well.
