God did not forget to include school in his biblical design for raising children -- home education is a natural expression of all that God intended for parents and their children. Clay and Sally Clarkson s Educating the WholeHearted Child is about rediscovering God s original design for the family. This book is a homeschooling model based on sound biblical principles of nurture, discipleship, instruction, and learning. Newly revised and significantly expanded, the Clarksons uncomplicated, common-sense approach to life and learning will provide you with the tools you need to experience God s abundant blessings for your family.

Educating the WholeHearted Child is nearly 400 pages, about 100 pages bigger than my dog-eared, highlighted, often borrowed copy of the 2nd edition. This extensively revised third edition will help you build a solid biblical foundation for educating and nurturing your children's hearts, minds, and souls. The book is divided into 4 sections (Home, Methods, Learning, and Living), sudivided into 18 chapters.
From recommendations for getting started homeschooling to Biblical parenting and discipleship to discovering the learning styles of your students (and everything in between), the Clarksons' have covered it all and then some. Whether you are considering homeschooling, new to homeschooling, or have been homeschooling for years, you will find encouragement, inspiration, and a plethera of information in this "handbook for Christian home education".
The Clarksons have whole-heartedly educated 4 children, who are now grown and serving God. They must be on to something.
One of my favorite areas in the book is the part about creating discovery zones in you home. They talk about how you don't need a "classroom at home" or even a designated homeschool room to make your home one filled with learning; create a loving atmosphere, make available the tools and resources to aid in learning, and give your children encouragement and guidance and they will thrive.
I got my $2 book 3 years ago and it has been so well loved and used constantly that it is now falling apart so I am purchasing this newer version. This book gave me the courage to step away "curriculum-in-a-box" and I have never looked back!
