Favorite Homeschool Book

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

This week at the Homeschool Village we are supposed to...

Share your favorite book that has supported and encouraged you in your homeschooling adventure and why you'd recommend it to another homeschooler.

Just choose one???  Not sure I know how to do that! But I will narrow it down to two.

1. The Bible  I really can't think of any other book that has influenced me more than God's Word in every aspect of life and that includes homeschooling.  When I am worried or troubled about how things are going for my kids God's Word comforts me.  When I am weary of teaching, the Bible encourages me not to give up.  When I feel stressed while schooling His Word calms me.

2. Add Two Cups of Laughter by Cyndy Regeling and Tammy Duby. I am  too serious!  I like to get things done in a timely and organized fashion.  A lot of times, I am not about the fun when it comes to schooling.  I hatethat about myself...I wish I were more fun and could ease up a bit.  Add Two Cups of Laughter has helped me do this!  There are all kinds of ideas to make homeschooling not such a bore and a chore.  I love this book!  Actually, I think I need to read it again this summer before school starts up again!

Visit the Homeschool Village at Layton Family Joy!

I've not seen that book, but I just love Tammy Duby - she's so cute and so sweet and so much fun to visit with at conventions. :) I'll have to keep my eyes open for that one. Thanks for the suggestion.
