Part 1 - The Who, Why, and How of Homeschooling, with Aby Rinella, Karen DeBeus, and Yvette

Aby Rinella, Karen DeBeus, Yvette Hampton - Homeschool Podcast

Part 1 - In this special roundtable discussion, Aby Rinella, Karen DeBeus, and Yvette Hampton talk about Why, How, and Who of Homeschooling.

"I started to really pray about it, and a few people approached me and said, 'Have you thought about homeschooling?' And I was like, 'No, because that’s not something we’re going to do.' And so it really started, though, to chase me down; God started to chase me down. Because I think, deep down, I did sort of admire what I knew about homeschooling, but I just thought, 'That’s not for us.'" - Karen DeBeus
