I am so thankful to live in this country. My girls and I are currently studying the U.S. Constitution and what a brilliant and revolutionary document it is. As humans, we have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God, but this country was founded on prayer, compromise, and moral integrity.
As we celebrate today, I will personally be reflecting on two of my most precious freedoms - the freedom to worship my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the freedom to educate my children at home. Not everyone has these rights that I get to enjoy each and every day.
Below is a link to the HSLDA website where they share the stories of three families whose lives were changed by the freedom of homeschooling. I was inspired by each one, but especially Daniel and Yelena who grew up in Russia under communism and are now living in the United States and homeschooling their children.
Happy Independence Day! Thank you to all the men and women who have put their lives on the line for our freedom. God bless America!
