Destruction of a Homeschooling Family

A homeschooling couple I know just broke up. It’s certainly not the first time I’ve heard of this happening, but this particular couple is a special one and I feel really bad about it.

Surely Christian families are under attack. What else possesses a man to leave his wife and several beautiful children whom he supposedly loves to “do his own thing” except sin?

He knows his decision will force his wife back to work and his kids back to school (where they originally struggled before being homeschooled) and little ones to daycare. But sin convinces him to put himself and his desires first.

The mom in this family is a strong person, with a loving, loyal family who will have her back. But that won’t erase her pain, nor the lifelong damage done to trusting young children who are about to learn firsthand about betrayal.

Did you ever want to go up to someone and smack them upside the head and knock some sense into them? I do, right now, but that’s not what Jesus would do, so I’m just going to pray for this family instead. I hope you will, too.
