Homeschooling for the LONG HAUL
It's easy to say "let us not become weary in doing good," but how do moms keep from burning out when they're knee-deep in science experiments, dirty diapers, math problems, and a clogged toilet?! For the mom who is wondering whether the call to homeschool was actually a wrong number, Beverly is here to encourage and equip moms to shift from surviving to thriving!
When you’re at an event with Beverly, you’ll find yourself connecting with her on an emotional journey few have ever faced. You’ll be drawn in by her storytelling, laughing and crying along with her and feeling empowered as you walk away with ideas for living the homeschool life to the fullest. Her passion for applying biblical truth to the hard parts of homeschooling will help moms who...
are trying to figure out their "why" for homeschooling
feel weary and burned out
don't feel they are seeing "progress"
need to be reminded of their call to homeschool
wonder if they're making any difference at all...and if homeschooling is really worth it!
Beverly Jacobson is an Air Force wife and homeschooling mother of 9. From marriage and motherhood to miscarriages and military moves, Beverly spent some years thinking she was getting pretty good at this homeschooling gig and planned to homeschool for the long haul.
Then came the phone call that turned the Jacobsons' lives upside down. When Beverly and her husband learned their 9th baby had Edwards Syndrome, they grieved upon hearing their daughter was not expected to live. But God had other plans...which didn't necessarily seem good at the time. (Who signs up to be the mother of a child with profound disabilities, especially when you don't feel equipped to handle the ones you've already got?!) Yet through the storms, God's faithfulness drew the family closer to His heart. Their experience led Beverly to start a non-profit organization (Verity's Village) and develop a personal ministry to other moms committed to teaching biblical truth to the next generation.
