Tresta’s Homeschool Story
“I want out!” was Tresta’s reaction to being a young mother and her husbands request to homeschool.
As a child Tresta believed the words “you’re stupid” and when she barely graduated High School she thought she had her proof. After graduating college with two degrees she still felt unintelligent. When her husband asked her to homeschool their four small children she panicked, how could she teach them? what if it wasn’t enough? she could ruin them! She found a wonderful mentor to guide her. She spent the next several years in a small basement apartment hiding from the world and teaching her children in secret. During that time she discovered how to learn and how to make connections between the mind and the heart by focusing on Christ and His language of symbolism. Come, learn to connect more deeply with God, recognize your intelligence and experience the joy of seeing the light of understanding move from your children’s mind to their heart.
