How can a parent educate their children at home even under the most impossible circumstances? Yvette Hampton talks with Nicki Truesdell, mother of 5, second-generation homeschooler, and author of Anyone Can Homeschool. Nicki will share her stories of home education through many ups and downs, including being a single parent and dealing with a chronic health issue, and how she learned to adapt to every situation.

Moms and dads, you have all that it takes to educate your children, whether your circumstances are ideal or not.

This is a three-part interview, so make sure you come back Wednesday and Thursday to hear the rest.

"A lot of times parents are fearful because they think "I'm not trained," or "I don't have any special background.", but they are the expert when it comes to their child, so we’re arming them with some good resources. If you have a child with dyslexia, then we're going to point you to resources and books and services for dyslexia or autism because knowledge is power and we battle fear by prayer and trusting in God..." - Faith Berens
