Andrew Kern – The Way, the Truth, The Life

“Christ is the note in which – he’s the key in which the whole cosmos sings. The angels sing in the key of Christ, and we should too. And when we aren’t willing to think, for whatever reason, when we aren’t willing to think according to our capacity, which for none of us is very great, but if we’re not willing to think according to our capacity then we have to consider the possibility that it’s because we don’t believe that Jesus is the truth, which he claimed to be – “The Way, The Truth, and The Life.”

“Honestly, we were worried about that social awkwardness, and we just thought, going into it, that if your kids are at home with you all day they won’t have opportunities to interact with other people and they’ll come out weird. We didn’t realize, going into it, that that just wasn’t the way homeschooling was. There are so many opportunities to interact with other kids. Our kids, in fact, have been involved in a co-op for several years and they’re able to get together with other kids a day a week and play and learn great classical stuff, and memorize, and recite, and speak in public, and that’s been great for them. The the myth of the unsocialized homeschooler is just that. It’s a myth. It’s not based in reality. The other thing we realized though, was that some of that reservation was just vanity on our part, and the idea of raising a kid who was different seamed distasteful to us at first. But the truth is, as Christians, we really are needing to raise up kids who are different from what the public school system is turning out. And so, as we started to look at our own prejudices we realized it’s okay to be different from what’s out there. It’s okay to have kids who are well-spoken, and well mannered, and can interact with adults, and are intelligent, and can speak in public, and stand for their faith, and so we embrace some of that difference.”

“I want you to know, the time that you invest is oh so worth it. Those days when you feel like you’re a failure, those days when you feel like you’re going to ruin your child, you just keep showing up. Motherhood is the ministry of showing up. Show up moms. Show up every day. Be patient. Be diligent. Be faithful. God will reward you when you do not grow weary and quit. It’s always too soon to quit! The cool thing is, you can finish this race well. You can finish this race with kids who actually like you. You can finish this race with a family that’s intact. You can finish this race with kids who are able to stand strong in this world, that can take their place in the marketplace, that can function well in society, that can love the Lord and really make a difference in this world. And you have that opportunity when you choose to homeschool. And you just keep pressing on, and you keep leaning in to the Lord when those days are super hard. You can do it! I know you can!” – Connie Albers
