Yvette Hampton and Sherri Seligson share a conversation about the struggle that many moms feel of “putting their lives on hold” in order to homeschool their children. They also talk about how science can impact our children’s worth and value in Christ and how to transition from the elementary years, to the middle school years, to the high school years.
