I am a mom of 5. I teach 6th grade at a public school while my children attend christian school. I am praying about my decision to either continue teaching at the public school...or, quitting my job to homeschool my children. I know this means that we will have to budget and learn to live on one income. There are 4 1/2 months left in the school year, so I have a little time to make my decision. I have always wanted to homeschool.

Hi Jennifer! I'm going through the exact same thing right now! I teach at a private school, where my 2 kids attend for free, but I am praying about quitting to homeschool them. I'm nervous about everything, especially the financial part of it, but I know that if this is what God's wants for our family, He has promised to provide for all of our needs! I will pray for you and your family, that God will lead you to the right decision. I think sacrifice is so worth what we really want out of homeschooling. Take care, Kate

HI jennifer.I'm a mum of four and homeschooled the eldest three for seven years.I am in exactly the same boat as you.Our last daughter was in a Christian school last year but I have decided to leave my job as a home care worker to home educate her through high school.Like you it will mean we go back to one income but having done it before...I know we will manage.My daughter had such a troubled year at the school last year and my husband and I were not happy with some of the schools values.When things all came to a head and we made the decision to homeschool her ...I felt really peaceful about it.Our eldest daughter who is now 23 and married with a successful job says being homeschooled was the best decision we ever made for her.Follow your heart.I know it requires sacrifice of income/lifestyle but the benefits are worth it
