God did not forget to include "school" in his biblical design for raising children. He had already designed the family. This book is about rediscovering God's original design for your home and family, and then showing you how home education is a natural expression of all that God intended for you and your children. It is a road map to God's abundant blessings for your family. My goal in this book is to give you, a Christian parent who wants God's very best for your children, a Christian home and homeschooling model that makes sense. Here you'll find an approach to homeschooling that is based soundly on biblical principles of nurture, discipleship, and instruction and learning. It is about much more than homeschooling, though-it is about life. The WholeHearted Learning model is a comprehensive, uncomplicated, commonsense approach to living and learning at home that brings together everything you will need to raise wholehearted Christian children. The home education model is based on real books, real life, and real relationships, and is guaranteed to "liberate learning" in your home. This newly revised and significantly expanded edition is divided into four main sections: Home, Learning, Methods, and Lifestyle. Christian homeschooling that reflects biblical principles must begin with the sure foundation of a Christian home. If the home is right, then the schooling will be a natural expression of the life of the home. When we decided in 1983 that we would homeschool, we came to this new lifestyle out of a background of discipleship ministry. We instinctively realized that homeschooling would be the best way to raise our children to be disciples of Jesus. With three wholehearted Christian children graduated and one still at home, this new third edition of Educating the WholeHearted Child is the expression of all that we have learned and experienced in our twenty-five years as a homeschooling family. I pray it will be a blessing to your family. When we wrote Educating the WholeHearted Child in 1994, we could never have anticipated that it would touch the lives of tens of thousands of homeschooling families.
