Get an ‘A’ Everyday

One of the joys of homeschooling has been understanding I am in charge of my own education.

I am in charge of my own education...

Like many, currently in the educational system, I took my education for granted. I had learned to pass a test for the sake of the grade, and to have a high GPA for the sake of scholarships. All the information I learned was quickly forgotten and never referred to again. I look back, feeling sorry that I missed so many years of learning.

Fortunately, homeschooling provided a second chance to the education I never received. Teaching my children awoke a new love inside of me… A love for learning and a desire to experience life in a new way! That insatiable hunger for learning allowed me to experienced people, places and nature in a whole new way!

The more I taught my children, the more I realized how hungry I was for knowledge. God used my desire to teach them in order to teach me.  The biggest lesson I learned is that each person is in charge of his or her education. No one else is responsible for the learning that takes place in my life. I am responsible for seeking after and discovering the knowledge I need.

I am responsible for seeking after and discovering the knowledge that I, so earnestly, need...

I have been a professional student now for over 12 years. No… I don’t mean I have been in college for all that time, as many students do. What I mean is… I have dedicated myself to learning and exploring of any subject that has personal interest… I have taught myself html (code for websites), hydroponics, essential oils, and more. I have read endless biographies of famous men and women who made a difference in history, and I have self-published a book- all these through self-motivation.

Today, I encourage you to make the first step towards your own education:


2) Release anyone else from the responsibility of what you learn.

3) Redeem the time you may have lost due to your immaturity or lack of awareness.

4) Begin studying an area of interest you are passionate about.
