"How many parents, upon embarking on their
homeschool adventure, ask their children 'What do you want?' 'What is important
to you?' More often the pressing questions are 'What does the state want; what's
important for college?' The message in Homeschooling & Loving It is so terribly
important because it encourages parents to ask life-changing questions of their
children; questions that, if they will really listen to their answers, will
actually help them discover their dreams, and find God's purpose for putting
them here on earth."
"I'm loving Homeschooling and Loving It! It is
well-written, well-designed, and much needed! It clearly and simply starts at
the beginning and shows the way to the end. It takes into account more than
"school" and goes on to incorporate all aspects of learning, but most important,
it revolves around discovering and encouraging each child's uniqueness and
individuality. Whether you are new to the idea or homeschooling or just need to
regain momentum or change directions, you'll find this book most helpful. Step
by step it guides you to think, design and gather the resources to carry out a
homeschooling plan that you and your family can not only live with, but thrive
with. Your biggest disappointment may be, like mine, when you come to the end
and there is no more!"

of 10 for practicality and inspiration."
"Homeschooling is one of the most important
choices a family will ever make. While the decision should be based on research
and information, the daily routine of it needs to be based on a mutual passion
for discovery, ongoing respect for each other and the joy that learning as a
family can bring. With Rebecca's book in hand it will be easy--and so
