If Mary and Martha were to homeschool, Martha might have her plans in place (but be frustrated), and Mary might be at the feet of Jesus (but behind schedule.) We relate to Mary and Martha, but this workshop is for those, like Mary, who love the Lord but need help and structure to homeschool. Linda, a self-proclaimed Mary,managed to homeschool for seventeen years, and still likes to talk about it!
