You Decide 029: Marilyn McMurray – A Family Saved From Devastation by Homeschooling
Just as COVID-19 has “aggressively coaxed” many people into educating their children at home, Marilyn felt forced to remove her son from the school system, and homeschool him instead. Reluctant from the word go, she didn’t know that homeschooling would eventually save her family from a horrible fate, and actually move them from a place of hopeless depression, to a place of joy and intention.
A former Special Ed teacher – Marilyn never thought she’d be using her skills for her own son. But when Wyatt started to have significant trouble at school, things went from bad to the worst very quickly. His aggressive behaviors at school, started to spill into home life, and life became hell.
In their darkest hour, murder/suicide actually become a viable option. A real one. They had nothing left.
Marilyn’s commitment to her family, self-improvement and relentless pursuit of answers led her into many “coincidences” she felt were divinely inspired.
From overwhelming despair, shame and loneliness, Marilyn graciously walks us down the path she took, that led to a place of joyful homeschooling and enjoyment with her son that she never thought would be possible, and wouldn’t trade for anything.
