Home School Journeys: Family Spotlight
  1. The Hall Children
    The Hall Children
    Until four years after my son was born, I couldn’t fathom homeschooling. “What is this strange thing you speak of?” I asked a friend who brought this crazy notion to me. Now, ten years along this life-changing journey, I can’t fathom not homeschooling. It isn’t because I have it all together, we have a money tree in the back yard, or because the kiddos shower me with school morning kisses. It is quite the contrary. The longer I teach, train, mold, and model the more God displays just how much more of Him I need. He disciplines me in my shortcomings. The finances don’t always look pretty, but God has always supplied all of our needs according to His riches —not ours. And my sweet blessings don’t always wake up with smiles on their faces and pencils in their hands eagerly awaiting today’s lessons. But the joy from seeing an “Aha” moment spring forth after a long day’s math cry or the park playdates in the middle of the warm days make this tough yet gratifying journey worthwhile. Most importantly, seeing these gifts from God creatively thinking with the mind of Christ is paramount. God created us in His image. That means we have the power and authority to gain wealth, have health, and speak life. Through my children’s entrepreneurship, I have seen God in a more vivid light. Whether it’s my son’s butter making, the middle daughter’s ice cream sandwiches creating, or the youngest’s brownie baking endeavors—God continues to display that through Him, the opportunities are limitless. Due to seeing God’s creativeness through my kids, I have taken the leap of faith in making homemade natural dog treats. Homeschooling is not just about the books, it’s about the enlightenment of who God is and who we are in Him. I, along with the kids, have learned both daily and eternal life lessons. I can’t imagine not homeschooling.
Each month we'll bring you the stories of home school families. This month, we are pleased to share with you the home school journey of the Mastroianni family.

In this month's feature, Antionette Hall explains why she can't imagine not homeschooling her three children!
