SR 773: Lessons From a Regular Homeschool Mom – Crystal Coleman, Part 1

“I knew when I was pregnant that I wanted to homeschool. I realized I had the opportunity to redeem my education and grow alongside my children.” – Crystal Coleman

Dive into the realities of being a homeschool mom with Yvette Hampton and her long-time friend Crystal Coleman on this heartfelt episode of the Schoolhouse Rocked Podcast. With over 20 years of friendship and shared homeschooling experiences, they delve into the integration of Christian principles into daily life with their children. Crystal, a homeschooling mom who transitioned from a career in public school teaching, offers advice on taking things one day at a time, handling academic struggles, and the importance of a supportive community. The discussion ranges from light-hearted anecdotes about the friendship between their daughters to serious reflections on overcoming parenting regrets. Listen in as these two “regular homeschool moms” provide wisdom, encouragement, and a powerful reminder to rely on the Lord for guidance in homeschooling. 

Come back Wednesday and Thursday for the rest of this important conversation.
