Do you have to be a supermom to homeschool as a single parent? If you’ve ever wondered whether it’s possible to do it all, Mary Jo Tate, this week’s guest, has some encouragement for you! Join Mary Jo and host Mike Smith on Home School Heartbeat.

Mike Smith:
This week, author and homeschooling mom Mary Jo Tate joins me. Mary Jo, welcome to the program!

Mary Jo Tate:
Thanks, Mike! I’m delighted to be here!

Mike:
Mary Jo, being a single parent is hard enough, but homeschooling as a single parent seems like an overwhelming challenge. Is it possible?

Mary Jo:
Absolutely, Mike. In fact, the growing number of single-parent homeschoolers testifies that it really can be done!

Though it may feel like you’re alone, but don’t try to be a lone ranger. Every homeschooler needs a support network, but it’s especially crucial for single parents, because we don’t have the help and the sounding board of a spouse. Get involved in a local church, in a homeschool support group, make friends with like-minded families, and seek out wise counsel from godly advisors.

Even more important, remember that God’s grace is sufficient. He promises to be a father of the fatherless and a defender of widows. If God has called you to homeschool your children, He will provide the strength, patience, grace, resources, and time to do it. Let your family and your life be a testimony of God’s faithfulness.

Mike:
Mary Jo, I know this program will be an encouragement to a lot of single parents who have been wondering whether they can really homeschool. Thanks for joining us this week! And until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
