About this Episode

Zan Tyler and the inspiring Christy-Faith discuss the remarkable success and impact of homeschooling. Christy-Faith shares compelling insights into the achievements of homeschoolers on standardized tests, the SAT, and the ACT–outscoring both public and private school students and defying the conventional norms of education. Primarily, Zan and Christy-Faith discuss why homeschool families grow well-socialized, well-rounded- and well-adjusted kids. Could it be that our society is confused regarding social exposure versus true socialization? If you want your child to have a true sense of self and belonging, discover how the family has been the answer all along.



Meet My Guest

Christy-Faith has more than two decades of academic and administrative experience in education. She began her career in the classroom, earned her master’s degree, and later co-founded a premier educational center and consulting firm with her husband, Scott. Here she interacted with thousands of students (kindergarten through college), supervised teams of specialists and tutors, reviewed individualized education plans, and collaborated with parents and professionals to address the unique needs of every student. Their highly individualized instruction and impressive academic outcomes led Christy and Scott’s center to become one of the most successful private learning centers in the country. As their family and business expanded, Christy-Faith began to wonder why the educational system was failing so many kids. She embarked on a personal exploration of homeschooling, an experience that profoundly transformed her perspective on educating children. Since her “awakening” Christy Faith now utilizes her teaching expertise and mentoring skills to support parents on their own homeschooling journey. Now, as a social media powerhouse with multi-millions of video views, Christy-Faith expertly debunks homeschooling myths and motivates countless moms to take the leap, remain steadfast, and re-vitalize their purpose. Christy-Faith captivates her audience with clever clapbacks, inspiring posts, and calls to action. Her unwavering determination, coupled with her ability to effectively present data and research, brings a much-needed powerful punch of credibility and substance to the homeschool community. Christy spends her days advising moms within her online membership, Thrive Homeschool Community, hosting her podcast, The Christy-Faith Show, and writing. All this while imperfectly educating her four “endlessly entertaining” children. Christy-Faith’s book, Homeschool Rising, is the must-read for homeschoolers and anyone curious about homeschooling. Filled with compelling insights and empowering narrative, it is destined to claim a prominent place on every homeschooler’s bookshelf, while also being the go-to book you’ll enthusiastically share with your friends.

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.
