Have you ever spent your entire day yelling, “come on, hurry up, we’ve got to go?” Do you ever feel like you’re so consumed with the tasks that you have to get done that you have no time to love those dearest to you?
That’s what chapter 8 is all about!
Here’s what Lori says:
Just yesterday I was listening to the news and a new report came out with the same sad story.
“Spending a lot of time watching TV, playing video games and surfing the Web makes children more prone to a range of health problems including obesity and smoking, U.S. researchers said on Tuesday.”
The sad reality is that we aren’t creating relationships, if we are avoiding each other. The fact that we are here on this site as homeschoolers shows that we have made the education of our children a priority, but what about fostering a real, honest and respectful relationship. We know what we envision for the future, at least I do….it’s my adult children coming home with Godly spouses, forging onward with the values that we’ve passed down to them. Well, I know only two things…God’s plans are not always mine, and raising Godly, confident kids is not going to be easy.
But it is possible, and even probable, if we put God first and take our responsibility seriously! And that doesn’t mean we live a serious life. In fact, it’s just the opposite! When we start prioritizing nurturing our children’s souls, we’ll laugh more. Love more. And enjoy more.

And just for visiting, I’ll give you the chance to download a radio show I did with the great folks at the National Institute for Biblical Parenting on Getting Kids to Honor You. It melds well with the parenting part of TLHV. So check it out!
