Christmas Greetings from AHEA!
One of my favorite verses is: Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
This year has been a year of highs and lows for the Home School Community in Alberta.
Some of you are new to home schooling while others have home educated for a decade or two. Some of us have only one or two children, while others have many more children. Some home school with workbooks, others unschool, and still others are eclectic in their approach to educating their children. Some are doing well financially while others are struggling hard each month. Many of us are home schooling out of conviction while others are home schooling out of desperation.
This year has also had many uncertainties for home school families living in Alberta. Some of us are reeling from an unexpected death or work issues. Others have health, parenting or relationship issues. Life might have been tough this year, but you have continued home schooling your children at home. (May God bless your efforts!)
The one thing we all have in common is the love that we have for our children and the desire to educate them at home. AHEA continues to advocate for home schooling in Alberta AND defends your right to home educate your children in Alberta. AHEA will continue to do so in 2019.
I continue to pray that God will renew your strength and resolve to home educate your children day by day. I pray that each of us will do what we can and then leave the rest in the hands of Almighty God. I also pray that God will give you peace and joy in the home school journey.
I continue to live in faith, not fear - and that is the best word I can give you for the days ahead of us!
Happy Home Schooling AND Merry Christmas from AHEA!
