Episode 189 - Durenda Wilson, "Helping Others Be Unhurried In Their Homeschooling"


Durenda Wilson and her husband, Darryl, have been married for twenty-seven years. They are the parents of eight children and nana and poppy to four grandchildren. After more than twenty years of homeschooling, Durenda knows that home educating is an incredible blessing—but only if you don't let it hold you hostage to unnecessary expectations and notions of what it "should" look like. One of her favorite things is helping parents think simply and outside the box so they can homeschool confidently and in a lifestyle that works for their family.

Durenda loves to encourage parents by sharing some of the clarity that comes with age, experience, and learning things the hard way. Parenting can be demanding, messy, amazing, intense, and wonderful—all within thirty seconds of any given day. Durenda encourages parents to find what works for them and let go of self-made standards and comparing their family with others. This happens most readily by SLOWING DOWN and embracing their family’s unique journey.
