It’s a fascinating memoir about her family’s journey through different education systems to finally arriving at home education. Drawing on her journals and sometimes the children’s she plots the course of their adventure – the ups & downs, problems and amazing providences of God. And answered prayer because God is very central in all she writes and teaches along with Derek. She appends a summary of resources she used.
I guess I enjoyed it most because I know them all – although I haven’t seen Esther, Nathan & Caleb for many years I loved reading about their growing years, seeing photos of their art & science projects, their music – all graduated from college now.
I think it’s worth a read even if you’ve chosen another path to the Joneses…as Derek (the fourth jewel) writes: “We understand that you, dear reader may have chosen a different course for education than the home educating path we were led to in God’s purposes for us….Please understand therefore that what you find here is our perspective, based on our conviction of heart in our journey. May you know the blessing of God even if the details of your own journey turn out differently.”
