Hi, I’m Gina!
Follower of Christ, wife, mommy to three boys, & second generation homeschooling mama passionate about wholesome living & raising little disciples who know and love the Lord.
Deuteronomy 6:7 commands us to teach our children diligently. It teaches us that this happens in the mundane: when we sit in our house, when we walk by the way, when we lie down, and when we rise up. We are called to diligently train and guide our children to know and love the Lord in all that we do.
Did you know that 90% of brain growth happens before kindergarten? Before a child turns six years old, their brains have developed more than any other time in life. Early brain development has a lasting impact on a child and the early years are when they are developing those connections that will establish the way they process things for the rest of their lives. Amazing, isn’t it?! Knowing this has created even more urgency when it comes to equipping my children with truth and guiding them through these impressionable, foundational years.
Children are naturally eager learners. Their sponge-like brains just soak in the world around them which makes it all the more important to make sure that what they are soaking in is feeding their soul. The Bible tells us in Psalms 19, that God’s creation reveals to us His glory, His handiwork, His testimony. That they make wise the simple and that they are sweeter than the sweetest honey and drippings of honeycomb! What better place than God’s creation for children to run wild with learning?!
There is so much to learn from the Lord’s creation, we just have to stop and look for it. So come and join us as we traipse barefoot through God’s glorious classroom!
