Tell us a little about yourself. I am married and have two children. My wife Brook was also homeschooled. My wife and I were married without dating or courting. You can also read the print version of our story which is available through CBD (What God Has Joined Together). I speak at homeschool conferences and seminars, write a regular column for HOME SCHOOL DIGEST and am a frequent guest on radio talk shows. I am also the author of the book, "Homeschooling From A Biblical Worldview," available from CBD.
What was your motivation behind this project? My wife and I have been burdened for young people who want to experience God's best for their marriage. Many homeschooling parents have regrets from their young life and they want their children to be free from the traps of this world. We wanted to offer our story as an encouragment to families that God can bring about a marriage in His time that will amaze us. We don't need to "take matters into our own hands." We can trust God to bring us our mate.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? We hope that young people will be encouraged to abandon the dating trap, and will even avoid the mindset of scoping out every young person as a potential "courtship" possibility. We need to let go and allow God to work on our behalf. Our story will build faith in heart of every single person who is search for God's best!
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I have been influenced by Ravi Zacharias, Francis Schaeffer, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Joseph Stowell, Andrew Murray and many others. In homeschooling issues, I have been influenced by Samuel Blumenfeld, Michael McHugh of Christian Liberty Academy, Christopher Klicka, David Quine, Jonathan Lindvall, Skeet Savage, Chris Davis and many others. The writers for HOME SCHOOL DIGEST magazine have, of course, shaped my worldview.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: My family began homeschooling in 1978. I have 5 sisters and no brothers. I work for Wisdom's Gate which publishes the HOME SCHOOL DIGEST magazine, as well as An Encouraging Word, which is a magazine for Christian women. Wisdom's Gate emphasizes Character Building, Family Discipleship and Developing a Biblical Worldview.
