This is an excellent book to have as you begin Highschool at home. Barb writes with a warmth and honesty that immediately sets you at ease as you begin to formulate plans just for your highschooler. Packed with forms and many examples, this book helps you to see the possibilities you have in every day life for a well rounded education.
This is my first year at homeschooling, and I started this adventure off with a 13 year old 8th grader. Feeling totally inadequate, even though I knew the Lord had led me to homeschool my daughter,and knowing He would equip me to do so;I stepped out in faith. Barb's book was recommended by a friend. I purchased it, read it, and was filled with inspiration and a renewed feeling of, "Yes,Teri, the Lord will not leave you unequipped. He has sent you Barb's book to simplify and lead you into greener pastures." I am in the process of applying Barb's ideas into our learning,with the Lord leading of course.This book is a great source of inspiration. Now, I look forward to the next 4 years of high school homeschooling.Thanks Barb! Our God is an awesome God isn't He?!
If you even have the slightest idea that you might perhaps homeschool your children through high school, then this book should be at the top of your "To Buy" list! It is filled with wonderful ideas and great forms to use to help you through those potentially scary high school years, but more importantly for me were Barb's affirmations that, yes, I am qualified to homeschool through high school because God has called me and will equip me. What a treasure this book has been to me...and to the dozen or so people who have purchased it at my recommendation. I wish I would have had mine at least a year before my daughter started high school, but I'm so glad to have it now...and I will probably have to buy another copy so that I can actually keep one in my house when the other copy is out on loan to a friend.
First thing; I hope I "rated" this correctly. I give it 5 Stars! This is such a wonderful book! It has every imaginable form you could think of, PLUS about 100 more! Barb speaks directly to the "average" person. She will inspire you, make you cry and love her all at once! I HIGHLY recommend this book and others she has written. I have all but one, and she has NEVER let me down! Thanks Barb!
This is an absolute must for homeschoolers with highschoolers! Actually, the best time to buy this book is before your child even is ready for high school!There are lots of ideas and charts included,which is great!! The best part is all the support, wisdom and encouragement. I love this book and I am excited about the high school years!
