I received the opportunity to review an e-book that will be released sometime next month. This book, Turning Points, was one of the most inspirational homeschooling e-books I have ever read. The book is being developed and produced by TOS and I have to say that if you only ever purchase just one book about homeschooling, then this is the book.
Turning Points is a compilation of stories from several families and their journey with God to homeschool in their families. Each family shares their own “turning point” to answer the call of the Lord to school their children at home. While each of these stories is unique, each shows the divine intervention by a loving Heavenly Father in the education of His children.
I reminisced throughout this book about all of the reasons why we chose to homeschool our own son. I was reminded of our own “Turning Point” and why we answered the call of the Lord to begin homeschooling. I discovered amongst the various stories that although our own story was different, there was also a common thread. We wanted what was best for our son and the Lord directed us through a change of heart to homeschool.
I will reflect on this book many times over the years and I know I will seek it out to bolster up my courage when things are rough in our homeschool. I will be reminded that God is truly in charge and if I turn our challenges over to Him, that He will have the answers we seek. He knows my child the best. He made his mind and will help me know how to teach him if I put my trust in the Lord to direct me. This e-book is a great reminder of that and I know that I will reach for this book again and again. It is uplifting and inspiring. It reminds me that I am responsible for turning the heart of my child to God and that this is done best in the home.
I highly encourage you to consider purchasing this e-book for your own library. When it is released, I will provide a link for you. In the meantime, you can watch for it at the TOS E-Book Express.
