A Review of
Wisdom's Way of Learning
Book by Marilyn Howshall
Review by Barb Shelton
There is much that even the most experienced, seasoned homeschooler can glean from this book. As one reader said: "This book is a breath of fresh air, a release from bondage. It truly drew me into the presence of the Lord like no other book I had ever read. It brought me to my knees and made me look at myself and my relationship with God and my children. I began to see how I had failed my children in my misdirected zeal to educate them."
If you share any of these feelings and frustrations, you probably think your child and a lack of self-discipline are at the root of the problem. These may enter into it, but may I suggest that your approach to education is more at fault than your child? And that you begin by looking at your own ideas before dealing with a supposedly problem child?
Among many other topics, this book covers "How to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Your Child's Education," "Seven Natural Vital Signs of the Learning Process," "Organizing Your Plan Using Seasons: God's Timely Design," "Teaching Language Skills Through the Seasons," "the Life- Message Approach," "The Unit-of-Life Approach," "Preparing Your Heart, Mind, and Home for a Lifestyle of Learning." You'll never view your children's activities, whether "academic" or "non-academic," the same again! It is eye-opening, life-changing, and heart-inspiring!
Besides the Bible, this book is the cornerstone of this course.
It is non-optional for those who seek God's will in their homeschool experience,
as it will point you to Jesus, the One who is the Way, and from whom we are to learn what education is really all
about and how to apply the principles we learn about it to our unique
children in light of God's unique purposes for their lives.
