I heard Todd Wilson speak at a homeschool conference recently. His talk called, "Lies Homeschooling Moms Believe" was hilarious, but also VERY helpful. I ordered the above book to hear more. It is a fairly short book, so I finished it in no time. It was EXCELLENT! One of the points he makes in the book is that if you give attention and care to your marriage, then your homeschooling and family will fall into place. He mentioned a woman he met with 13 homeschooled children. She said that she focused so much on her children and homeschooling that her husband got sick of it and they are now divorced. Such a tragedy!
It really made me realize that I get too caught up sometimes in doing all of the "good" things for my children's education ( ie reading lots of books, doing experiments, field ttrips, etc.) that I neglect my husband. That is NOT what God wants us to do. This book, as well as Todd Wilson's talk at the conference, made me realize that I CAN let some things go with my children. They will be more blessed if I am a good wife. :o)
