Worthwhile Reads: On J.O.Y. and Religious Homeschooling

“Worthwhile Reads,” in which I point my readers to interesting articles or blog posts I have recently read, is going to be a regular Love, Joy, Feminism feature. 

Lisa of Broken Daughters writes about the trials of learning to make her own decisions after being taught to live with J.O.Y., or “Jesus first, Others second, Yourself last.”

Lewis of Commandments of Men writes about how fear can lead to religious homeschooling and the ties between Christian homeschooling and dominionist ideas.
