Personal Homeschool Testimonials


It is always so encouraging for me to receive personal homeschool testimonials from families that have been able to benefit from The HomeScholar. I just had to share these two that were posted on my Facebook.

Two Notes of Encouragement

Two Notes of Encouragement
Here are two notes I received this last week that I thought were so encouraging.  I hope you will take their advice and discover how I can help you homeschool high school.



Lee,
Thank you so much for taking the time to compile these resources for me. They are, alternatively, eye-opening, encouraging, and down right exciting. I am seeing a lot of potential avenues to prepare my son for a positive college experience. I'm so glad I followed my instincts and decided to contact you now, while we are in the early stages of our high school years. Your resources have given me a lot more confidence to homeschool a gifted high schooler.

Thank you, too, for your time today, it was a pleasure to speak with you.

~ Sue in Massachusetts



Dear Lee,

So far, Hannah has been accepted to George Fox University with a $10,000 a year scholarship, and we just received news that she's been accepted to Seattle Pacific University with the Trustees' Award scholarship for $14,000 a year! We are so excited.  Many years ago we committed our little school to God, and look what He has done. A big thank you to you for being used by Him to help enable this to happen, and to many others who have been there along the way.

- Molly on Whidbey Island, Washington
