Are you a Homeschooler or a homeschooler?
(Tim) As I've said any number of times, there are Homeschoolers and there are homeschoolers. I don't support the former, but I'm all for the latter. How to tell the difference?
The Homeschooler sees her home as a fortress rather than a center of ministry. Publicly, she speaks much of her husband's authority and how much she loves to submit to it, but privately...
she bosses him around. She is omnicompetent and shoves her children forward to prove it. She worships her children. She loves her own household, but not so much the Household of Faith. She has a thing against authority--the state's, her husband's, and that of the pastors and elders of her church. The only authority she seems to believe in is her own. Her children are above average and every one of her friends and acquaintances can count the ways. Sadly, it's not uncommon for her children to conclude that the only way to escape her maniacal control is to rebel.
Every Homeschooler needs to repent and become a homeschooler. And for the best example I know personally, please allow me to present to you Mrs. Tim (Anne) Wegener. If you're a homeschooler, or a repenting Homeschooler, I strongly urge you to bookmark her blog and read it, faithfully. It's simply wonderful!
Anne, her husband Tim, and their children have, over the past eighteen years, been at the center of God's blessing to the Baylys and Church of the Good Shepherd--where Anne is a Titus 2 woman and her husband a most-respected and trusted elder.
