Yvette Hampton and Ruth Adams discuss what it was like for Ruth to be homeschooled in the 80s and 90s and talk about the blessings she received through her homeschool experience. They also discuss what the Lord is teaching her now as a homeschooling mom, lessons she’s learned in 40 years of homeschool involvement, and how to keep discipleship the main thing (hint…Seek First the Kingdom of God, Matthew 3:33)!

Ruth Adams is the author of the book Legacy Reflections of a Homeschooled, Homeschooling Mama and is the host of the Legacy Homeschool Reflections Podcast. She was home educated herself in the 1980’s and the 1990’s and is now homeschooling her own seven children, seeking to pass on the legacy of faith her parents imparted to her. She has an almost forty-year perspective on the homeschooling movement and encourages parents to reach the hearts of their children with the gospel of Jesus Christ. She offers warnings against falling into ditches and exhorts parents to take a Biblically balanced approach in raising their children for the glory of God. Ruth understands the challenges and joys of being a homeschooling mama and loves mentoring other mothers who desire to disciple the hearts of their children for Christ.
