Parenting

Yvette Hampton, producer and host of the groundbreaking documentary, Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution, brings you encouragement and resources from home education experts and REAL families just like yours, to help you train your children well.

Episodes

“The homeschooling journey doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, it shouldn’t be. In a world that wants to tell you “how-to” homeschool better, come and discover that simplifying, letting God lead, and focusing on your family is far greater than any new “method” or "system.”

Yvette Hampton talks with return guest Karen DeBeus about her new book, The Simple Homeschool Journey: Building a Family, Not Just a Transcript.

The Simple Homeschool Journey - Karen DeBeus Interview Video

Watch this full interview with Karen DeBeus (over 1 hour) on our YouTube channel.

From the book: “Karen shares from her fifteen years of experience as a homeschooling mom. She will help you stay focused on the true goals for your family. Homeschooling is about so much more than just academics. You are building a family, and not just a transcript. It isn’t about a piece of paper that defines your children, but the foundation upon which they stand, that defines them. Join Karen as she takes you on the journey from just starting out in kindergarten, all the way until dropping her first born at college. It was a spiritual journey, a faith-building journey, and a family-building journey. And in the end, keeping it simple and focusing on God and family, were the most beautiful parts of all. Wherever you are in your homeschooling journey, you will be encouraged to build your family on the Lord’s foundation.”

"you might not be organized, and you might not love to lesson plan, but the reality is that’s the mom that God gave your kids, and those are the kids that God gave you. And so he perfectly meshes those things together, and there’s no piece of paper that any state can ever give you that qualifies you any more than the God who created both us and our children qualifies us; he’s the one that qualifies us.'" - Aby Rinella

"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
