Reaching Higher - Free Homeschool Ezine

We know that homeschoolers feel a little ‘different’ to other families, especially here in Africa where we are still a rare, but rapidly multiplying breed!

Even in other countries, we, homeschoolers, stick out a bit from the other ‘herds’ as we strive for different outcomes for our little flock, than the rest.

Most of us are Christians and so we are reaching higher as we seek the Lord’s instructions for building strong families and developing godly character in each individual’s life. Even if you don’t share our faith, you will surely benefit from good principles for shaping young lives!

Subscribe to our free, homeschool ezine, Reaching Higher, for the top tips and juiciest leaves of the homeschooling cyberforest!
