8 – Inspirations vs. 8 – Determinations for Homeschooling Your Children

Daily numerous of families are inspiried to homeschool.

Personally, I speak with or read an email from those who are considering to home educate for various reasons.

I’m of the conviction that the best form of educating your child in their developing years is right in the comfort of their home around those who love them and will advocate for them.

While being inspired to homeschool is the beginning to a homeschooling journey you must know that having determination will keep you homeschooling.

Here’s the difference.

Inspiration is often impulsive.

Inspiration is birthed from a ‘good idea.’

Inspiration is life giving to creativity.

Inspiration stirs you towards a plan/focus.

Inspiration is initially exciting.

Inspiration activates you into motion.

Inspiration moves you emotionally.

Inspiration will help form your ‘Why?’ for homeschooling.

While all of the above actions are noteworthy they are just the beginning to the decision to homeschooling.

Determination is your responsibility

On the other hand Determination is where you’ll find the ‘stick-to-it’ that’s needed to keep moving forward on your homeschooling journey no matter what.

Determination births tenacity in light of your inspiration.

Determination will provide the drive needed for your inspiration.

Determination delivers the courage and bravery to do what you are inspired to do.

Determination grabs self-confidence by the throat and says, “Let’s do this!”

Determination keeps you steadfast beyond the inspiration.

Determination rests within assurance that what you are inspired to do it ‘a must.’

Determination seals the deal of  your inspiration into making the final decision and sticking with it.

Determination puts the spotlight on a conviction to do what initially inspiried you and to keep doing it.

If you are considering homeschooling, currently homeschooling or on the fence if you should continue to homeschool I encourage you to grab hold of DETERMINATION. 

Determination will not fail you.

Determination will not be in short measure.

Determination will not fall short.

Keep DETERMINATION as your close confidant and friend. Make your inspired plan of homeschooling a reality that is thriving and living.

If you do you will be amazed and grateful at your personal growth through this process.

Additionally, you’ll be overjoyed and proud at the people your children will become as a result of your determination to home educate them.

Take responsibility for your own determination!

Only you have that power to do so.

When you receive a compliment as an Option 3 director (((heart)))

Today I received a compliment. (Thursday)

Yesterday I received a compliment. (Wednesday)

The day before that….another compliment. (Tuesday)

My week started with a compliment. (Monday)

Angela 4.4.18 #2 picmonkey

These were not just any compliments. They were compliments from my personal members of my homeschool accountability association here in South Carolina.

Now before you think I am narcisistic…..Ha! I’m really am not. (I don’t think. Lol. :p

In truth, I’m grateful. Humbled. And feel appreciated.

I don’t crave the compliments. But they do make me feel good.

See…..

My purpose driven life is to make a positive impact on 1,000s of homeschoolers worldwide. I do that first my serving the homeschooling community here in South Carolina.

Being a director/administrator and owner of an Option 3 association has afforded me a close and personal opportunity to ‘make a positive impact.’

Today one of my members I spoke with by phone mentioned how she really appreciates my efforts of being reachable, touchable but yet allowing her freedom to homeschool without being ‘all in her business.’ Additionaly, she was grateful that I would help her along her homeschooling journey as it related to transcripts. The icing on the cake for her was that I was familiar with Classical Conversations Challenge program and honor courses they have.

Yesterday, there were three different compliments. A new Mom from PA being so grateful for clear guidance and getting her on her right footing for her three high school students and their transcripts.

Another Mom who was new to high school years and didn’t understand the correct way to choose her child’s course categories.

Yet, another who was so worried about homeschooling her elementary student that she needed to talk out this journey with someone.

Many texts. Lots of scheduled phone calls. And tons of emails.

My desire is to provide a connection with my families in such a way that they do feel I’m touchable, reachable and am rooting for their good along this homeschooling journey. A place where there is no power struggle over their freedoms in their homeschooling between them and myself.

In simplest form….I want to be and provide all that I didn’t have when I was just ‘a homeschool Mom’ a member of an association.

This coming 2018-2019 will prove to be the icing on the cake for my members. If they thought my services thus far were a blessing to you….. YOU ALL ARE ABOUT TO GET YOUR SOCKS BLESSED OFF OF YOU!! 

Why? Why would I pour that much energy into folks that I don’t know?

Well, my mentor Earl Nightangale (I listen to him every single day…..’The Strangest Secret) says that the more you plant seeds the more you’ll going to receive back. You can’t desire something for nothing. Good seeds planted. Good harvest harvested.

My greatest desire to live on purpose and make an impact where I’m planted is always my drive.

I’m planted with you in this homeschooling ‘world.’ I want to live it to the fullest giving back in big and in small ways.

I’m TOTALLY okay that many may not be who I am called nor positioned to serve as an Option 3 director. My other co-directors in this community may be a better fit.

But for those I am to serve and assist in their homeschooling journey…..I’m delighted.

Delighted to be your association director and provide legal status for you to homeschool in South Carolina

Just how long should YOUR homeschool day be? (*New* YouTube Video Release)

Frequently I have parents ask me about their school day.

“How long should MY homeschool day be?”

“I think I’m schooling to much.”

“I school for five hours with my kindergartner.”

“My days drag on. It’s just not fun.”

Well, how long your homeschool day should last will depend on a few things.

I’ve narrowed the ‘school day time’ down to THREE considerations:

  1. Grade level of your student
  2. Academic level of your student
  3. YOU! How long can you mentally handle teaching?

Join me on this topic and share your comments down below.

Pass on your questions and let’s discuss this more.

2017-2018 UCHU-AA SC Palmetto Fellows Homeschool Scholarship Recipients are……

For the past three years United Christian Homeschoolers Unlimited – Accountability Association has had the wonderful privilege of being positioned to allow homeschooling students the opportunity to qualify for Palmetto Fellows.

If you aren’t familiar with this South Carolina prestigious scholarship click HERE to learn more.

You see……

Unless the Option 3 homeschooling Accountability Association provides ranking for its students the student will ONLY qualify for the Palmetto Fellows if they have a:

*4.0 gpa or higher

*ACT score of 32 or SAT score of 1400

Homeschool Students may still qualify for Palmetto Fellows if the association provides ranking and the student is:
*ranked in the top 6% of the ranking class

*3.5 gpa or higher

*ACT score of 27 or SAT score of 1200

 

What’s the big deal regarding receiving the Palmetto Fellows?

Well,  The Palmetto Fellows Scholarship is a merit-based program established in 1988 by the General Assembly to recognize the most academically talented high school seniors and encourage these students to attend college in the State. The Palmetto Fellows scholarship Program is administered by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education. Palmetto Fellows may receive up to $6,700 their freshman year and up to $7,500 for their sophomore, junior, and senior years.  

Taken from Commissioner of Higher Education Document May 2015

Two homeschool students have met the qualification to receive the Palmetto Fellows this year with EARLY entry application.

They are TWIN young ladies.

They ranked 1 and 2 in their Junior class homeschool year with UCHU-AA.

They are seniors this year for 2017-2018.

One qualified without a need for ranking.

The other qualified based on all three necessary requirements.

Help me congratulate:

<<<drum roll>>>

‘Got’ your acceptance letters and membership cards?

This 2017-2018 membership registration has been a busy season for me. More than the other years prior. Lot’s of new families. Yay!!!

Going to a more easier automation of receiving applications, reviewing for acceptance and sending out your acceptance letters and membership cards has been a MUCH EASIER process.

The question is…..

If you have not received your acceptance letters and membership cards THEN:

LIVE YOUTUBE: Homeschooled: But don’t know how to ‘adult.’

There is a new terminology out there called ‘adulting.’

Who knew that ‘adult’ was a verb or could be used as a verb?

Anyhoo….

How many homeschooled children do you know (may your own – Ha!) that aren’t ready to enter into adulthood?

From day to day and from year to year…..we are busy and focused on academics for our students. Sometimes this focus also brings failure to focus on life skills and basic things that will otherwise prepare our students for life.

Our conversation today covers some important things you will want to make sure you cover over the course of your homeschooling that will get your students ready for entering into ‘adulting.’

The list within the video is by no means exhaustive…..so share your thoughts and additions to the list.
