real encouragement for real homeschooling moms

great thought #52

“If we over-elevate sheltering as an ingredient in our parenting formula, is it possible our children might come to believe that Christianity is mostly about avoiding bad stuff? In other words, although our Lord never told people to shelter themselves from anything except self-righteous religious leaders, do we present an inaccurate and unattractive picture of Him?” ~ Reb Bradley

Interesting thought. And one I think that most Christian parents struggle with. . . what can they (the children) safely be exposed to, what will be too much, at what age, etc.? It’s really a bit of a tightrope.

hmmm….maybe that’s why our new Church search has been stalled for months. Actually, this is a very good quote for parents to remember.
