Why this theme for 2023?
For the last 11 years, Teach Them Diligently events and resources have focused on the HEART of our homeschool, and we’ve stood in awe as God has transformed families by opening their eyes to the incredible importance of what they do every single day within their homes. By prioritizing discipleship, relationships, and giving our children a foundation for their faith that will hold no matter what craziness the world tries to push on them, we are truly preparing them for success no matter what God calls them to do in the days ahead. Time after time, we’ve heard from families whose lives have been transformed as they’ve realized the importance of their mission and re-aligned their thinking to fit that.
Homeschooling for the heart of your children is a lifestyle choice that goes well beyond a mere educational decision. It can strengthen your family, give increased confidence, and bring peace to your days. We believe in the method so much in fact that we’ve coined the phrase “Heart Schoolers” to identify those of us who prioritize discipleship and allow that to drive our educational efforts. Heart Schooling prioritizes the hearts in children. When priorities are in line, hearts are won, academic excellence is achieved as love of learning increases, and confidence grows in children and parents alike. It truly is the unexpected intersection of great parenting and excellent home education. By the time this year is over, I pray that your family, like ours, will happily identify as Heart Schoolers and that you too will enjoy the incredible life Heart Schooling affords.
You’ll find that the secret to becoming a true Heart School family and enjoying the lifestyle that comes along with that is to change the central focus of your homeschool. We invite you to check out Leslie’s newest book, Homeschool with Heart: How Amazing Parents Become Excellent Home Educators to really dive into what we’re talking about and then join us in Teach Them Diligently 365 all year long and at an event this season to get even more encouragement and helps for your family to adopt this life-giving way to homeschool.
