Today's public schools are rapidly sprinting towards moral relativism and spiritual confusion. Parents who send their kids to these institutions every day run the risk of having their precious children indoctrinated against the very Christian values they hold dear. Southern Baptist leaders are calling for an alternative. This is that alternative Mimi Rothschild, Founder & Christian HomeSchool Advocate

Mimi Rothschild Brings You “Homeschool versus Public School”
by Lena Mabra

——————————————————————————–
I grew up raising my sisters and brother since Mom left us with an alcoholic father. As a young girl, there were many times I’d pour water into Dad’s Vodka bottles in the attempt to keep him somewhat sober. I can also recall sneaking into Dad’s checkbook to pay the bills so the utilities wouldn’t be shut off.

It was the ultimate miracle when God took me from my world of utter darkness into His world of brilliant light! Through the midst of it all, I was led into salvation and accepted His love and forgiveness in my later teen years.

Spending most of my past as a child adult, I was oblivious to the world around me as I struggled just to get by one day at a time. So ignorant was I that I barely even knew that in order to attend college, a person had to PAY or makes some sort of financial arrangement. I assumed it was “free”, like going to high school.

God opened the door for me to attend a private Christian university by providing most of the funding through scholarships, grants, and work study.

It was my last semester in college when I discovered that I was pregnant. With the
stress of full-time college hours, work study, and poor eating habits (due to my background issues, I had developed full-blown bulemia), my health suffered tremendously as my body fought to nurture the child that I was carrying. I was
in such a state that my hair was falling out in clumps and my fingernails were coming out of their nailbeds!

Reluctantly, my husband and I made the choice for him to finish college, since he would be the breadwinner. Not only was I so ill but we were beyond poverty and my financial funding had run out yet his education was being compensated
by the military since he joined the Army National Guard to provide income and medical insurance for the delivery and care of our new baby.

When my oldest was eight, God called me to homeschool. The timing could not have been worse. I was working fifty plus hours per week, nine months pregnant, and physically, mentally, and financially, homeschooling would be impossible! Let’s not forget all the issues regarding homeschool versus public school. I didn’t want to be the controversial one. I didn’t want my kids to be in the middle of such scrutiny. I didn’t want to be different! Why couldn’t God just leave me alone and pick on someone else??

Feeling like Sarah in the Bible upon hearing that she would bear a son in her old age, I laughed at God and told Him of the 1001 things that would have to occur in order for me to homeschool.

Three years later, God not only fulfilled my dream of homeschooling but He provided a way for me to finish the last semester that I did not complete in college! Eight years later I was going back to get my degree!

This time, I did not attend a Christian university but a state college. I was
devastated when my childcare situation fell through. By now I had three children all
under the age of eight and we went from babysitter to babysitter. For one reason or another, I had no childcare.

Praying for a solution, I still struggled with the impossibility of the situation. There was no doubt that homeschooling was God’s will. Many thoughts jumbled in my head. Taking classes at night and homeschooling during the day was an option but many times, my husband worked into the evenings.

Just when I was about to give up the dream of completing my degree, God whispered to me, “Ask your professors if you can bring the children into class and they can do their homeschool while you finish your degree.”

REALLY feeling like Sarah in the Old Testament this time, I laughed at how absolutely impossible this would be. To HOMESCHOOL my kids in a PUBLIC school, a state-funded college. Talk about all the controversy, criticism, and maybe even investigations this will involve! I’ve read about all those homeschooling versus public schooling battles. I didn’t need any more issues in my life especially not legal issues! God must be out of his mind!

Well, now looking back at it all, I have to say in amazement that only God could have softened the hearts of the professors to let my children come to class. Only God could have taught my children as they worked so intently on their homeschool for two straight hours while I concentrated on my lessons. Only God could have babysat my one-year-old as she played quietly in her stroller. And only God could have calmed the battles of homeschooling versus public schooling.
