Why we homeschool

We believe that our faith and relationship with Jesus Christ is the focal point of our lives and everything else is just an aspect of that.  Education is no exception.  By choosing to homeschool, we can not only select the most appropriate curriculum for each child, but also present it all from a biblical context and perspective.  In public schools, they teach fundamental skills, but only apart from God.  We believe truths such as math and science come from God, and that presenting them in that context is the best way to teach them in truth.  We've been blessed with the opportunity to take responsibility of our children's righteous upbringing, and to prepare them "to always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks about the hope they possess....with courtesy and respect." 1 Peter 3:15-16.
