Focus: Lisa, what made you decide to write a book about homeschooling?

Lisa: I run into parents all the time who say, "I'm thinking about homeschooling." Within the next breath they usually add, "But…," and give some reason why they think they could never do it, or why it would never work because of their family situation, or they simply don't know where to begin. I soon discovered that these parents usually had a stereotypical view of what homeschooling looks like and they just couldn't see themselves in that picture.

Focus: What do you tell them?

Lisa: I don't tell them anything - I show them! I invite the reader to join me as we "visit" fifteen families who each homeschool for different reasons, in unique situations, using a variety of methods. By observing the flexibility of schedules, quality of education, strengthening of relationships, and realistic sacrifice, they can make a more well-informed choice for their own family.

Focus: Is this book for families who have already made the choice to homeschool, as well?

Lisa: Absolutely! Homeschoolers are always learning and we usually learn the most by hanging out with other homeschoolers. This book gives us the chance to observe fifteen different families and discover how they are handling the high school years, juggling laundry and toddlers, building character in their little ones, or trying out a new teaching method.

And, best of all, when you are finished reading it you can pass it along to your neighbor or mother-in-law as a skeptic-friendly "homeschool evangelism" tool.
