“Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” Luke 24: 13-35
I was in the grocery store today, and I saw a woman with a baby in a sling and 5 or so kids with a cart near her. I scanned their ages and realized she must be a homeschooling momma. We struck up a conversation and I mentioned our recent transition from homeschooling to brick and mortar. She quickly reproofed my decision of sending my kids to Catholic school and I was struck at the severity of her reaction. Choosing to homeschool or not is a personal choice and one that need not be all or nothing. As women, we tend to reproof those who have chosen to educate their children differently than we. And I say this honestly for both homeschool mothers and traditional school mommas out there — judging brings us down. It divides us.
