What families are saying:

" you face a new adventure in homeschooling you can be sure that the journey will sometimes be fraught with peril. As Bilbo says, 'Adventures are not all pony-rides in May-sunshine' (33). You can also be sure that you risk much in order to secure a glorious adventure, one planned out beforehand by God Himself. May we all face our adventures with courage and may we fortify our children to do the same." —Jennifer Courtney
