Meet My Guest

Jill Hadley and her husband Craig are in the fourth year of homeschooling their two kids. They unexpectedly began their journey in 2020 with a freshman in high school and a sixth grader. Their son will be graduating this year and is preparing for college, while the daughter will begin her second year of high school. Jill says, “Homeschooling has been an absolute blessing that we might have missed if it weren’t for Covid.” Craig, a PhD in Nutrition, has his own consulting company. One of the great blessings of the homeschool lifestyle for the Hadleys has been the freedom to travel together as a family wherever in the world Craig’s work takes him.

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.
