Here's what Deborah Wuehler, senior editor of The Homeschool Minute, has to say...
"Instead of looking at everyday life issues and attitudes as obstacles to doing what we want to do, we need to look at the obstacles as part of the life God intended for us to live, and teach around those. It's how we live that life that brings glory to the One Who designed it."
What great insight! The obstacles are part of the life God intends for us to live! To break it down further... a "successful life" isn't getting through the "task list"—but how we live out life, obstacles and all!
Another old paradigm bites the dust. :)
