Homeschooling is as much a lifestyle as it is an educational choice. And, this lifestyle continues past the "schooling years" as parents and children (along with brothers and sisters) establish a working relationship, that has had time to develop. From a parent's point of view, it is a privilege to assist, on a day-to-day basis, in unearthing the gifts and talents God has placed within one's children. Homeschooling provides the freedom to explore and seize opportunities to develop these gifts that might not be readily accessible or available in a traditional school setting. This is of tremendous benefit.
The Road That Takes Me Home, in many ways, represents years of our family's efforts in the life of our daughter. Having recognized her musical gifting within the first year of her life, we were able to give that talent an importance and focus that would not have been as easily achieved in a traditional school setting. And, we were able to channel her talent in the arena of ministry -- all to God's honor and glory -- seeking out opportunities for her to perform that would serve the Kingdom.
My husband and I served as executive producers of this video/CD/outreach project and my daughter is the vocalist.
