Whoever Receives This Child

I wanted to thank everyone for the outpouring of love during our trying week when our server crashed. Your patience and encouragement is a testament of the Love in your hearts.

Right now, we’re welcoming in a lot of children who may only be homeschooling temporarily. More people means a greater demand for money, time, and attention. I have had mama bear moments in my life, where my kids are what matters; but the reality is, every child in the world is just as valuable as mine.

It all made me think of fostering. I know EP has many foster families. A couple of our main admin, those names you’d recognize if you ever spent time in our support group, are foster parents. They’ve adopted through the foster system. One adopted three last year and is fostering an infant and toddler right now. Those children are supposed to go back to the mother. It is possible the current situation might just be temporary. But that doesn’t change the fact those children need love and attention right now. It doesn’t make them any less deserving of what other children receive. And it certainly doesn’t make it easier in the moment.

But, you didn’t complain about the newcomers. You graciously welcomed them, despite the trouble. Although our server ended up having a multitude of problems, it was the increase in traffic that exposed it. However, it actually was a blessing to find out sooner rather than later, and we are now switched onto a new system.

When the increase in traffic was first causing trouble, our EP family rose to the occasion. You did what you could to help and offered tons of encouragement. EP users are stepping up and answering questions, guiding the newbies through the process with patience and grace.

“Whoever receives this child in My name receives Me.” Luke 9:48

Thank you for your loving, open hearts to receive these children.

    Thank you so much for all you do! I am so thankful for this curriculum! I am a foster parent and we aren’t allowed to homeschool foster kids in my state but I have been supplemented EP for foster kids when they are struggling with something. I homeschooled my oldest (23) ( not using EP) and plan to homeschool my youngest (1) using this curriculum and I can’t wait for that day to come.
    Thank you and all the people who help you!

    Beautiful words. Thank you for all your work, God bless you all. We are an Uruguayan family, living in Argentina, It’s our first time doing homeschooling and we are enjoying the EP curriculum so much.

    Your incredible program has been a staple for us(and I found out a retired home schooler friend had used your program way back when) and we are so grateful that you keep providing, growing, and improving. We are mistake “expectors” here; we have tolerance for them because it’s part of learning and growing. We would rather have your program than not. So thank you for plowing through or “running the race” as the Bible says.

    You guys have done so much that we can never worry about servers going down. Homeschooling is the need of the present time. Especially in this pandemic.
