Misty_Bailey.jpg

Misty Bailey is the blogger behind Joy in the Journey and the podcaster behind Joyfully Homeschooling.  Her goal in this online space is to encourage and inspire you on your homeschool journey by providing practical tips for real life homeschooling. Through real stories, real struggles, and real life, Misty encourages her blog readers and podcast listeners to embrace imperfection and strive for a more joyful homeschool. 

In this episode, Yvette Hampton and Misty Bailey discuss whether our kids have the responsibility of being "salt and light" in public schools. Are we missing an opportunity to evangelize when we remove our kids from public schools, and if they do not have the responsibility of being "salt and light" there, who does? Finally, we discuss how, when, and where our kids should be "salt and light", and how we can prepare them.
