Summary

Summary

"Michele Howe has not left one stone unturned in this vast compilation of life stories and prayers from moms in the homeschool community. In Prayers for Homeschool Moms , Mrs. Howe guides us from the surface tensions of our lives into the inner sanctum of prayer and hope, reminding us that we are never alone."
- Susan Card , author, The Homeschool Journey

"Michele Howe presents realistic struggles and scenarios home educators can relate to all too well, then takes them by the hand and leads them to the ideal response: intimate dialogue with Jesus. Prepare to be challenged, convicted, comforted- even contemplative- as you pray the prayers of a homeschool mom."
- Ann Kroeker , author, The Contemplative Mom: Restoring Rich Relationship with God in the Midst of Motherhood

"In my twenty-one years of homeschooling, I have talked with all the moms Michele has written about! Veterans and beginners will not only find themselves in Prayers for Homeschooling Moms but will also find encouragement to water their souls."
- Jessica Hulcy , coauthor of KONOS Curriculum , national
speaker, and homeschooling mom

"Amazingly, Howe addresses every single issue that confronts homeschooling mothers today: each apprehension and thrill, each struggle and triumph. There is a prayer for all of us in this book."
- Kristyn Komarnicki , editor, PRISM Magazine, and homeschooling mother of three boys
