Maybe this is over simplifying it but at the top of absolute, must-have, can’t-do-without essentials for homeshooling is: Patience. Plain and simple. Patience.
For my husband.
For my kids.
For all of it.
When I was writing about Fruit of the Spirit and focusing on patience, I mentioned that this is an area I struggle with. I expect so much and desire so much that I forget. And I get impatience. And I push when I shouldn’t and raise my voice when I shouldn’t and then I apologize. And pray. And try to regain the patience that I should have had to begin with.
I’ll sing my song. (Have patience. Have patience. Don’t be in such a hurry.) And I know that God is using my challenges with patience to teach my girls and so I’ll work harder.
But without patience, nothing gets done and lots of feelings get hurt. Therefore, patience tops my list of 5 homeschool essentials.
