What is the best teaching method and the best homeschool philosophy? Is there only one right way to homeschool? With so many thoughts, opinions, and options to choose from, the thought of teaching our children can sometimes feel overwhelming! But, let us not forget what the Savior said, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27) He reminds us that it doesn’t have to be so complicated, and from his example, we can learn the best way to teach. We can teach as the Savior taught.
