The Simple Homeschool Journey - Karen DeBeus, Part 1

“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.

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

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.”
