Christine’ Weller’s closing prayer: 

“Dear Lord, I pray for the homeschooling parents right now who are wrestling with this idea of pushing through those high school years whether to continue on, whether to go through and graduate from homeschooling. I pray that you will put their mind at ease, and I pray that you will continue to guide them and give them the ideas, give them the inspiration that they need to do this confidently, and help them find the resources and the support that they need because it’s out there. So, Lord, help us keep our eyes open and our ears open to hear what we need to hear, and to not let in those negative fears and thoughts that would discourage us from pursuing this wonderful journey of homeschooling. So I pray that you will strengthen each one, and that you will bless each family that is listening. Help us daily. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.”
