A crossroads in my homeschooling journey occurred in 2006. Here is what happened, when I attended a homeschool leadership conference in Waxahachie, Texas. I have long since left Texas, and returned to Utah where my husband’s workplace keeps him. But I have never lost the vision that we need more statesmen and stateswomen in America right now, who are willing to stand up and make their voice heard. We have all been passively giving away our freedom to the government for many decades now. It’s time to turn that around, and get educated on how to influence the process. Don’t be afraid! Our country will be better when more of us stand up and get involved.
