    I love the permission this book gives us to put relationship first when homeschooling, to keep life real and be honest about what is most important.

    I loved this book. I have a husband who insists I homeschool, yet pummels me with these very lies….constantly. It was restful to know that there is at least one father out there who wants his wife to homecschool and at the same time supports her. My husband drains my stamina at every possible opportunity.

    Thanks, Todd, for letting us know that there really is somebody out there who cares.

    I’m currently homeschooling 3 of my children, I read your book and loved it, it was a big help,
    I have a home schooling joke for you,
    “ It’s apparent you home school when your husband comes home from work, and sees a storage containier of left over peas in the fridge and thinks it is another science experiment.

    My first thought was to look at the author and say, “Can I really be encouraged by a man when it comes to being a homeschooling mom?” The answer is “Yes!” Todd Wilson has done an amazing job of reaching right to the heart and soul of what can be so destructive to homeschooling moms — The LIES we believe. He clearly identifies nine major issues that homeschooling moms struggle with (though many apply to being a mom, period).
    Do you believe that everyone’s: kids are smarter than yours? house is cleaner than yours? meals are better, healthier, and more organic than yours? life is more disciplined and more spiritual than yours? house is more peaceful than yours? marriage is better than yours? doing a better job than you?
    These are LIES. Where do these lies come from? Why do we believe them? More importantly, what’s the TRUTH? And, how do we help other homeschoolers from believing the same lies? Through his Biblically-based commentary – Todd Wilson brilliantly, compassionately, and humorously walked me through these questions, the answers, and blessed me with a new look at my day.

    This is the best energizing and revitalizing book I have read on my homeschooling path. I share it with any woman, homeshooler or not! I make sure I renew myself and my commitments to myself, my children and my God each Fall as I re-read this book. Very funny and freeing book. Thank you so much Mr Wilson.

    Fantastic book! Encouraging, funny and yes.. true. Thank you, “Mrs. Todd”, for allowing your husband to make such fun of us! :) I currently have mine out on loan, so I think it’s time to buy another.

    I believe ordering this book was one of my best decisions! I am praying that God makes a way for me to be able to bless some of my friends with this book as a gift! Every homeschool mom MUST read this book! It is so TRUE!!!!!! Thank you so much to Todd for writing it!!!!!!

    The title of this book caught my eye as I was shopping at a homeschool curriculum fair. At the time I was feeling discouraged and looking for hope so I purchased a copy. I read the book at one sitting and promptly got five more copies to give to friends. I am now purchasing 25 copies for our Homeschool Support Group, we will be doing a book study for our Mom’s Encouragement Night. I highly recommend this book! Buy more than one copy, I bet you’ll want to share the encouragement with your friends too!
