Education,  Humility and Doxology

Humility and Doxology in Teaching

How does a humble life of praise impact our teaching?

I am a homeschool mom to 5.  Parenting and home educating, more than perhaps anything else, have humiliated (um, I mean humbled) me and taught me how much I need a Savior.

Going to a wonderful GHC (Great Homeschool Conventions) conference last spring with John reiterated in my mind just how much repentance, humility, and doxology have to do with my life as a homeschool teacher.

My friend, Lynna, author at the Homeschooling Without Training Wheels, kindly allowed me to write a post detailing my experience at the convention and how it impacted my view of teaching before I even started my own blog.  The entire post is now here.

Amy Sloan and her husband, John, are second-generation homeschoolers by grace alone to 5 children ages 4, 7, 9, 12, and 14. Their educational philosophy is one of humility and doxology, and follows primarily a classical approach. Amy loves coffee, and starts getting nervous if the stack of to-be-read library books beside her bed is less than 2 feet tall. Get her started on Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Homer, or Hamilton the Musical and it might be hard to get her to stop. Mostly, though, she gets really excited about the Gospel.
