Guest: Heidi and Jay St. John
According to the Washington Post, the number of children being homeschooled in the U.S. has nearly tripled since 2019. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Heidi and Jay St. John, who have homeschooled their seven kids and founded Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center, share three keys to a successful schooling model: flexibility, the one-on-one tutorial model, and a vision of Christian discipleship. The results? On average, kids that are homeschooled test three grade levels higher than their public school peers.
Too many parents are under the impression that education is simply reading, writing, and arithmetic. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Heidi and Jay St. John, who have homeschooled their seven kids, declare that education is never neutral! The founders of Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center insist that there is always a worldview being taught. In Luke 6:40, Jesus said, "Everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher." That is why Heidi wants to equip her kids with a biblical worldview, so they know why they believe what they believe.
