Sherri Seligson – The Joys of Motherhood and Homeschooling – Podcast Bonus Video
This bonus video includes 30 minutes of extra content for Backstage Pass Members only!
Yvette Hampton and Sherri Seligson share a conversation about the struggle that many moms feel of “putting their lives on hold” in order to homeschool their children. They also talk about how science can impact our children’s worth and value in Christ and how to transition from the elementary years, to the middle school years, to the high school years.
“When I left my job, most of the feedback I got from coworkers, friends, even some family members was, “You’re nuts! What are you doing putting your career on hold like that?” And we tend to do that. We kind of think that we’ve got this plan that we’re going to do in our lives that’s significant. And then we become parents. Then we decide we’re going to homeschool. Which, you know, again, that reinforced the fact that my friends and family thought I was nuts. But then we kind of see that as a sidetrack to what maybe God has for us, what we’re going to do that’s great and mighty in this world!”
