Can you imagine making this statement at the end of the homeschooling high school years? Hear what one of the contributing authors had to say about her experience:
“God’s grace has certainly been evident as He has led us step-by-step through the homeschool process in spite of our inadequacies, doubts, busyness, and lack of experience. It is God who has shaped and prepared our children for His work in His kingdom on earth.” – Marcia Wilson
You’ll read about families taking homeschooling one year at a time, while others homeschooled for the long haul from the very beginning, with homeschooled children from preschool to graduation. Some share where their children are now, what fields they are working in, and even whether or not they will homeschool their own children as they are now beginning their own families.
Are you wondering whether these ladies are perfect homeschooling moms? Does it cross your mind that they probably have it all together without the same hurdles you have?
Guess again! The women you will meet within these pages struggled through children with learning difficulties, dyslexia, vision therapy, and more – while one worked in the mission field, another lost a home to fire, one endured multiple surgeries over the years, others had multiple high schoolers, and you’ll read even more encouraging stories in Help, Lord, I’m Getting Ready to Homeschool My High Schooler!

Do you still have questions? So did Mary when she began homeschooling. As one of the contributing authors, she graciously explains the answers she has learned along the way, as she goes over the following questions:
- How will I teach upper level courses?
- What about curriculum?
- Isn’t socialization even more important for teens?
- What if they have different learning styles or difficulties?
- But I’m teaching multiple children!
- I had so many questions . . . about curriculum, how to do field trips, how to run a class, promotion celebration . . . a variety of things.
With Godly guidance and helpful Scripture, Mary talks you through the same fears she had when she first began – as if you were visiting over coffee! Enjoy a cup, as you learn from her experience with eight children, seven of whom have now graduated from their homeschool. Enjoy learning from her twenty-eight years of experience!
As the final homeschooler to share, Deborah Wuehler beautifully wraps up this E-Book with an Epilogue – including her son’s speech from his own 2008 graduation. She encourages you to remain faithful, follow God, and enjoy His rewards as you diligently seek Him.
