...allowing our children to be nurtured in the responsible exercise of freedom can liberate their Inner Light – the Christ Within. -- David H. Albert, author – And the Skylark Sings with Me: Adventures in Homeschooling and Community-Based Education; columnist—Home Education Magazine; and moderator, Quaker Homeschooling Circle.

From the Back Cover

Finally, a Christian homeschooling book that allows you to think outside the box. Christian Unschooling: Growing Your Children in the Freedom of Christ utilizes the essays of Christian, unschooling parents from across the United States and Canada to reveal a new way of homeschooling-one that is respectful of the child, the parents and the way God created children to be. Packed with information such as the benefits of unschooling, how to ease into the process and keeping records of your unschool, this book offers encouragement to parents who feel that God might be leading them down a different path. "Those Christians choosing to unschool their children have often been a neglected segment of the faith-based homeschooling community-but no longer! Christian Unschooling is a voice of encouragement and inspiration for those who've taken the path less traveled." --Deborah Taylor-Hough, Editor, the Bright-Kids and Charlotte Mason Monthly newsletters; Author, A Simple Choice: A Practical Guide to Saving Your Time, Money and Sanity "Teri and Elissa have done us all a great service by demonstrating how allowing our children to be nurtured in the responsible exercise of freedom can liberate their Inner Light-the Christ Within. Christian Unschooling challenges us to incorporate the words of Isaiah into our family life, 'All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.'" --David H. Albert, author, And the Skylark Sings with Me: Adventures in Homeschooling and Community-Based Education; columnist, Home Education Magazine; and moderator, Quaker Homeschooling Circle

I have been homeschooling for over 18 years. I started out with the traditional classroom approach, for that was all I knew. But as my children increased to five, I realized that I could not teach the traditional method and still have any time for fun, sleep, or anything else. At the end of each school day, I had a mountain of homework from each child that needed to be graded. I knew there had to be a better way!
I started reading about unschooling from John Holt books and then I discovered Grace Llewellyn. I was hooked. But it hasn't been easy at all. I felt "safer" with the traditional method. It was accepted by other homeschoolers and that was what I was accustomed to. So I struggled day-by-day and year-by-year, and I still have difficulties with feeling comfortable with unschooling.
But this book is the very best encouragement I have ever read! I couldn't put it down! There are others like me everywhere and this book tells stories that I can easily identify with!
It has explanations, scriptures, etc. It has a vast amount of useful information, even for veteran homeschoolers like me. But the encouragement is the very best part and the most needed part!
If you are new to homeschooling - BUY THIS BOOK! It will save you years of frustration and confusion.
If you are a veteran homeschooler trying to unschool - BUY THIS BOOK! It will comfort you, inspire you, encourage you, and always be at hand when you need a word of wisdom and an optimistic opinion of what you are trying to do for your children!
If you are a homeschooler that doesn't understand unschooling - BUY THIS BOOK! It will thoroughly explain unschooling to you in an easy-to-understand way!
If you ever wanted to invest in a book that will probably change the way you think and feel about unschooling, this truly is the first book you need to read! I just love it, it has become like a warm, understanding friend to me!

Format: Paperback
I was excited to read this newly released book and hungrily gobbled up the contents in the first couple of days I had it home. It was affirming to read about others' stories much like our own. It validated the way we've been led by the Lord to raise and educate our own children! The book was very easy to read and full of material that, in its familiarity, was comforting and built my confidence. Reading the essays sent in by others was like sitting around sharing our experiences, struggles and triumphs from the heart. My favorite section of the book was the one entitled "Guided by the Lord". In it, a couple of stories gripped my heart and brought both encouragement and inspiration. In my opinion, it is a "must read" for those looking into homeschooling and as well, those who are searching for a more relaxed and enjoyable way to homeschool their children.

Format: Paperback
This book is wonderful. It has personal essays and comments collected from Christian unschoolers who are living the dream existence - homeschooling in the freedom of Christ. It has encouraged me to keep on striving for the ideal for my own children, and to care less about what the world thinks education should be. I plan to keep this book for review during those inevitable bad days. Some of the essays were so true of my life that they could have been my own words (but were not). It is great to know there are others out there like me!

This is a wonderfully encouraging book - a great one to get off the shelf when experiencing a PPA (Parental Panic attack). The essays are my favourite section, but I am concerned that the contributors "days" could be seen as a typical day in their house, rather than one that was obviously extraordinary. Overall though, this book is an absolute keeper and I am thankful, so thankful, to have it.

Christian Unschooling is a fun, upbeat book that will encourage and reassure other Christians that unschooling is not incompatible with their faith. The authors talk about their own experiences homeschooling and include essays by many others about their experiences. The essays discuss why they homeschool/unschool, what a typical day looks like, etc. However, this book is not meant to convince anyone that unschooling is the way to go. It provides little or no arguments or deep discussions about the nature of education. It is meant for people who already feel attracted to unschooling but would like encouragement or ideas on how to do it.
