How to Homeschool When You Can't Get Off the Couch: Introduction

One of the biggest logistical challenges I have faced as a mother with a chronic illness is homeschooling my children.

Although we had no idea of the struggles we would be facing with my health for the majority of our homeschooling years thus far, our circumstances have not changed our reasons for educating our children at home. The Lord has been faithful and He has been teaching our whole family many things over these years that we would never have learned otherwise. I have had to learn to relinquish my lessons plans for His.

It has not been easy, and our homeschool day might not fit the exact picture of my dreams, carefully studied methods, and Pinterest boards, but it is still possible and doable. Some years have been easier and some have been harder, but the Lord has been gracious and we have still been able to stick with it. Over the next week or so I'll be sharing with you resources and tips that I have found extremely helpful as I have learned how to provide my children with a rich education while dealing with chronic illness. Stay tuned!
