Shepherding a Child's Heart
My husband and I have been married 25 years now and have really been able to witness to the fruits of homeschooling our children during their elementary and middle school years. Upon reaching ninth grade, three of them (so far) have been able to attend wonderful private high schools where faith is still central. If I could give my homeschool a name, it would be: A PLACE FOR ME. This is because we've decided that the education of our children will always have a place for JESUS. When we go out into society, we can encounter some who are constantly trying to rid our country from the love of Christ. Our homes and schools have all been environments where we can make Christ the nucleus (powerhouse) of all our efforts.My two oldest sons. Colin (21) and Brandyn (20), attend the University of Maryland and are very active in the Catholic Student Center there with a wonderful priest. My oldest daughter, Kristen (15), attends a devout private high school where the Theology department and advisory programs are tremendously transparent and service-oriented which gives parents real confidence in all their efforts. My two youngest, Claire (12) and Patrick (5), are still currently homeschooled.
