Hope for Homeschooling Struggling Learners – Anna Meli, Dealing with Dyslexia

Hope for Homeschooling Struggling Learners – Anna Meli, Dealing with Dyslexia

Anna attended public preschool and kindergarten, but severe dyslexia caused her mom, who knew she was smart and capable, to bring her home in order to keep her from being improperly labeled and segregated by the public schools. While her education wasn’t easy, her mom persisted and finally found a program that allowed her to learn to read. Even though reading is still a struggle and she didn’t learn to read until very late, homeschooling allowed her the freedom to pursue other passions and talents and provided the individualized education that she needed to succeed.

Schoolhouse Rocked Official Trailer, “REST”


There’s a new OFFICIAL TRAILER for Schoolhouse Rocked!

Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution is coming to theaters in early 2019. In this new official trailer Sarah Mackenzie, author of Teaching From Rest and Andrew Kern of the CiRCE Institute give a bit of advice for teaching from a state of rest.

“Jesus didn’t expect the disciples to feed the 5,000. He said, ‘bring me what you have.’ And they brought him this basket of loaves and fish and he turned it into enough for the multitude. Rest, for me, looks like me bringing my basket, just a little bit that I have, and letting him turn it into something more beautiful than I could on my own.” – Sarah Mackenzie

“What I want to say that about rest is that that’s what the Lord has called us to and if you believe that you should be homeschooling your children then you need to ask yourself a basic question. Do you believe that because you’re afraid of something, or do you believe that because you’re called to it? Our Lord has said to us very clearly, ‘if you’re weary and you’re heavy laden come unto me and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you.’ And then he says, ‘my yoke is easy and my burden is light.'” – Andrew Kern
