The Price is Right! Nancy Manos, Part 1

Yvette Hampton talks with Nancy Manos about the price we pay to homeschool and reminds us why we started this homeschool journey and how we can finish strong.

Being a homeschooling family requires a great deal of sacrifice and investment. As an experienced homeschool mom who taught her children at home all the way through high school, Nancy Manos will tell you that the price is absolutely right!

When we choose to homeschool our children, we have the opportunity to nurture and develop the unique gifts and abilities the Lord has placed in each one at a much deeper level than if they were in someone else’s care every day.

Come back Wednesday and Thursday for the rest of this conversation.
