Review:

“The devotions found in School Is Where the Home Is are exactly what my homeschool days need! Anita opens the door to her home and heart to share soul-stirring wisdom for how God can transform your homeschool journey into all that the Lord longs for it to be—both for you and your children. Whether you’re new to homeschooling or a veteran, these devotions will lighten your load, brighten your mood, and heighten your awareness that God is with you every step of the way.” --Amy Wallace, author of the Defenders of Hope series and homeschool mom of three, navigating high school, middle school, and elementary school with a smile—most days

“With clarity and sincerity, Anita Mellot leads the reader through a series of short readings and reflections which become more than just a time of devotion, but spark powerful and relevant thoughts on how we can be the best parent we can. Her heart as a mother, her dedication as a wife, and her years of experience combine in humility and insight. Not your typical collection of daily devotions, School Is Where the Home Is offers any parent a simple contemplation on the things that really matter.” --Andrew Pudewa, Institute for Excellence in Writing

“In Anita Mellott’s book, we get a glimpse of God’s provision, wisdom, encouragement, and love all wrapped up in a daily devotional that is sure to encourage the heart of every homeschool mom who reads it. Anita encourages readers to listen for God’s gentle whisper and to see the Lord in every aspect of homeschooling––from child training to math lessons. You’ll be blessed and encouraged in your homeschool journey by the wisdom that is found in the pages of this unique book.” --Heidi St. John, thebusyhomeschoolmom and FirstClassHomeschool.org

“Like all good books of encouragement, Anita’s draws out spiritual lessons from the everyday events that arise in the process of homeschooling. We all can identify with these stories. Accordingly, we can all benefit from the spiritual insights and encouragements she draws out of each episode. The lessons are written with a light touch but are able to connect each of us with that which is truly profound.” --from the foreword by Dr. Michael Farris, Chairman, Homeschool Legal Defense Association
