Danielle Papageorgiou has been homeschooling, or “lifeschooling,” for 14 years and has run the WINGS Homeschool Group for Charlotte, North Carolina homeschooling families for the past eight. She has a passion for helping other homeschoolers learn how to homeschool in a way that does not compete with family life, but actually enhances it… homeschooling done in a spirit of freedom, not legalism. Her desire is to see more families set free from the world’s expectations of what education is and to discover that God has made each family unique and has also placed in each of their children special gifts and desires that He wants to use. The verse that guides the Papageorgious in their pursuit of lifeschooling is Matthew 6:33, “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

In this episode, Sam talks with Yvette about growing up on the mission field, homeschooling, traveling, and operating a family business. He also gives great advice for teaching kids to be great writers.
