About this Episode

Heidi St. John shares how she journeyed from being a never-homeschooler to a passionate homeschool advocate. Homeschooling is a love-your-kids movement. It’s about thriving family relationships. Homeschooling gives parents back the gift of time with their kids. In the face of the education crisis and the broken system found all across our nation today, Zan and Heidi discuss how Christian homeschooling is a life-giving ark where families can flourish spiritually and relationally, while their kids prosper and grow academically.

Podcast Sponsor

At BJU Press Homeschool, we’re committed to providing children an education from a biblical worldview that is academically sound and challenges them to advance, think critically, and live like Christ. This type of education is not often possible in public schools because of the number of children taught in a classroom, a difference in worldview, and peer and societal pressure to conform. Homeschooling allows parents to instruct and disciple their children without daily fighting messages from an opposing worldview taught in the classroom. And with tuition costs and fees for private schooling or tutoring, homeschooling may be the only option for parents who are concerned for their children’s physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
