Every once in a while I have the privilege of reviewing a book that gives me goose bumps and makes me teary-eyed at the same time. Sherry Hayes from Large Family Mothering and Homeschool Sanity has written such a book.
Sherry is the mother of 16 children and you would certainly think that the mother of such a large family (twice as big as my eight!!) would have lots of experience (and she does!) but those who read her blogs know that Sherry is also a woman of godly wisdom.
Now, you and I can enjoy her Titus 2 wisdom combined with knowledge and experience all wrapped up in this beautifully written e-book Homeschool Sanity.
The decision to homeschool profoundly impacts the entire family. It is for this reason that I always advise homeschoolers (whether experienced or new) to include in their homeschooling budget the money for resources that encourage mom. Moms need to be continually encouraged, refreshed, educated and inspired.
Sherry’s new homeschooling e-book is such a resource. If you want to read one excellent book on education this summer, please make it this one. You won’t regret it!
“Homeschool Sanity: A Practical Guide to Redemptive Home Educating is my attempt to communicate a way back to common sense learning. It is a pathway back to the simplicity and joy of gaining the knowledge born out of the reverence for the God of the Bible. It is a journey filled with the grace and truth of Jesus Christ.
It is full of colorful and engaging graphics, helps, charts, templates and resources. Even the busiest mother will be able to breathe a sigh of relief as she reads just how easy it is to give her children an education that will be a blessing to them for the rest of their lives!”
Homeschool Sanity’s 160 pages include:
An overview of the different methodologies of homeschooling, A brief history of education in America, Preschool, Reading and literature, Grammar, Arithmetic, History and Science!
With a plethora of e-books on the market, Sherry’s labor of love stands head and shoulders above the rest. It is well-written (Sherry’s vocabulary and writing style are beautifully classic), it is chock- full of information on learning as well as wise advice, and (perhaps most importantly) it is reassuring and encouraging.
Are you overwhelmed with young ones and trying to “fit in” academics? Sherry will help you!
As we enter our 23rd year of home education, this experienced homeschooler felt reassured and encouraged as I enjoyed the eye-pleasing vintage graphics which illustrated the helpful resources included within the book.
I simply cannot say enough about this e-book!
My only real disappointment with the book is that it is not available in a hard copy. I want to have this book on a nearby shelf to pull out as a resource whenever I need a little help. So, Sherry, I hope that a printed version of your delightful resource is on the horizon!
Sherry, you have blessed some many of us through your wise and helpful blog. Thank you so much for compiling a truly delicious homeschooling resource.
