It is amazing to look back nearly 45 years and see what inspired a mother to make what was then considered a radical choice- to homeschool her children. Patricia Heidenry’s article for the New York Times from 1975 –Home Is Where The School Is – is an interesting and inspiring and still relevant read.
The gates are ajar, and every mother‘s prayer, every mother‘s tears, every mother‘s entreaty for her children, is marked in heaven.
The Bible Echo, November 12, 1894
I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
We need daily to uplift the soul heavenward, catching the bright beams of light from the Sun of Righteousness. Hath God forgotten to be gracious to His people who fear Him, who love Him? No. Hath He shut up His tender mercies that they can no longer reach His tried and tempted ones? I tell you, nay. Look up, trembling, doubting souls. Look up to the face of Jesus Christ, beaming with love upon the purchase of His blood, and doubt no more.
