"Schooling in the Spirit"

How to Bring the Fruits of the Spirit Into Your Homeschool

Do you strive to be that loving, patient, joyful homeschool parent you dream about?

For many homeschool families, parents seek to bless their children by providing a different atmosphere of learning.  We may begin with spiritual conviction and humility, but then fall into fear and self-strength.  What we began in the spirit may turn into a work of the flesh.  It is not satisfying and may lead us to burn-out.  We know there has to be a better way, but what is it?  Our God is eager to provide all we need for the journey.

This month, Sue Christy will join us, as she discusses what parents seek to know to bring peace, joy, kindness, and understanding to the homeschool experience.  She will help walk us through the practical, physical, emotional and spiritual surrender of seeking desperately after God.  After all, homeschooling is missionary work and requires a dedicated and desperate willingness.

With 29 years of homeschool experience, Sue has learned a lot about God's beautiful hand of mercy.  She provides an honest, funny, warm and compassionate wealth of knowledge and wisdom you won't want to miss. During the meeting, we will discuss:

  • How we can make our home a refuge,

  • What we permit, we promote,

  • Who we should really want to impress,

  • Why fear is a bad motivator,

  • What is living in the flesh vs living in the spirit,

  • Where and how we can run for help,

  • Creating a loving setting to enable better learning,

  • Ensuring humility in the home to create good fruit, and

  • Ensuring that the Lord gets glorified in our homeschool.

Plan to attend this meeting, if you desire to "build up" your family in an honest, transparent, healthy and humble way so the Lord alone is glorified.  Invite a friend to come (with their spouse) - they'll be glad you did!

Sue Christy is mother to seven children with ages between 16 and 33 (3 sons & 4 daughters).  They also have 2 son-in-laws and 4 grandchildren, so far.  She has been married to her husband Syd since 1982 and they live in Fullerton.  Sue and Syd began what they call their "Humble HomeSchool Journey" in 1987 and are still homeschooling, having graduated 6, with 1 son left.  One of their children has special needs, which they count a blessing in their humble journey as well.  This particular son still is schooled with Sue and Syd, even though he is 26.

Sue currently serves as a Principal for Grace Christian Academy PSP, as a La Leche League leader for North OC, and assists women in labor as a Birth Doula and Childbirth educator.  Her greatest joy is walking with the Lord.  Sue and Syd call Calvary Chapel Fullerton their home church body where their declaration is that the Lord has always been faithful, no matter what has come their way.
