Mrs. Homeschool
by Karen Louise Peters

"I sometimes wonder where I was when I changed my mind." Ainslee’s husband once said, “Physical change is not necessary for spiritual growth, but it’s almost always the impetus for growth.” With that mindset, when a job offer prompts Lyndon and Ainslee to move across the Prairie Provinces; they look forward with a renewed sense of hope. It doesn’t take Ainslee long, though, to be conflicted with the realization that what she defines as significance will be challenged on every level by Lyndon’s recent commitment to homeschooling. "Was homeschooling what God wanted for me? For us? Could I submit myself to God if it was? Could I fight Lyndon if it wasn’t?” Pressures mount from every side. When Ainslee comes to terms with what it means for her to use homeschooling as a good means to impact her sons’ lives, she finds that systems are incapable of accomplishing the transformation they all need most. Discussion questions included make Mrs. Homeschool an excellent choice for a Book Club study.

Karen Peters homeschooled her children for well over a decade. Their education also included public school and Christian school in Western Canada. Living in a variety of homes and communities through Saskatchewan and Alberta, plus a summer in the Yukon, has introduced Karen to various perspectives. Trained at Nipawin Bible College, Karen has written for Tribal Trails, including the continuation of the Eagle Feather Mystery Series begun by Bernard Palmer (popular in Christian circles for his youth mystery fiction in the 1950's-80's). At present, Karen lives on the bald prairies where the elevation varies by inches, and a train chugs past the wheat fields once or twice a day. There, fox kits play on the gravel road, Canada geese make music in the fall, frogs sing in spring, and the occasional moose ambles by. She has grown, married children and a granddaughter. Karen and her husband work in the housing industry, renovating and redeeming worn out houses—though she has personally never yet done electrical.
