A Long Obedience in the Same Direction with Parents of 8 | Episode 194

Eugene Peterson described our discipleship as “a long obedience in the same direction.” As Carole talked with Dan and Kara Beck about homeschooling their eight children over the last 20 years, this phrase came to mind.

If you missed part one, be sure to go back and listen to that. The Becks share the challenges but also the payoffs of their long obedience in the same direction.

You’ll hear about: 

  • The character development the Becks see in their children
  • Different resources Kara used to teach her children the Bible
  • Two trends Carole sees in large families she doesn’t see in the Becks
  • Why the Becks have homeschooled through high school
  • How they work to give the younger children a sweet childhood
  • Celebrating the mundane of life


Book Kara Mentioned: “Child’s Story Bible” by Catherine Vos
