I have already recommended this book to a friend who has also been thinking about homeschooling. I like the way it gives me a snapshot of other homeschoolers' experiences and prepares me for what's ahead. I love it!

Every homeschool parent should read this book. It has answered all of my general questions, inspired me, given me peace and transformed my mind. I am so impressed by the fact that all of these authors have come to the same opinion on so many foundational principles. Every article taught me something that I did not know or cleared up foggy topics. I taught in the public school for eight years so I had many preconceived ideas that I desperately needed to revisit. Thank you to the authors for saving me a lot of time, money and frustration in my own homeschool experience.

This book is so refreshing and better than any 'how-to' book on homeschooling you could ever read. After reading this book, I was able to relax and enjoy teaching my children. During difficult times as a homeschooling mom, the Lord has frequently laid on my mind encouragement I received from this book; it really helped me to see what is truly important as I seek to raise children who love the Lord.

I wish I'd known about this book when I began homeschooling, though I'm extremely glad I found it and read it now. After 10 years of homeschooling, there is still much to learn. What an inspiring read!

This is a wonderful, light, inspirational book that I'm reading over again because it gave me such down to earth perspective. I especially liked the format, one homeschool family's story at a time. You can pick it up like Reader's Digest and read one meaningful "article" at a time!
