★ Answering God’s Call – Garritt and Yvette Hampton, Presentation at 2:1 Conference

Garritt and Yvette Hampton didn’t set out to film Schoolhouse Rocked on a whim. Making this movie required a huge change for their family. Answering a call from God, they sold their house, cars, and possessions, to set out across the country filming this important homeschool documentary.

In October, 2017, Garritt and Yvette shared their story at the 2:1 conference in Herndon, Virginia. In this talk they don’t just talk about the steps they took in obedience to God’s calling on their lives, but they gave practical advice for hearing and responding to God’s calling for you.

Live interview with Leslie Nunnery of Teach Them Diligently

Yvette Hampton, producer and host of Schoolhouse Rocked got to sit down for a special live interview after spending the day with Leslie and David Nunnery, who were just wrapping up the Teach Them Diligently homeschool convention season. If you are a homeschool family, or if you are thinking about homeschooling we encourage you to attend a homeschool convention. We are always blessed by our time at these events. We had the pleasure of attending Teach Them Diligently in Nashville this year and it was a great event. We left extremely encouraged!

★ Nashville, 2018 Behind the Scenes Slideshow

We had a great time in Nashville. While we were there we wrapped up interviews for the upcoming homeschool documentary, Schoolhouse Rocked. We had the privilege of visiting Teach Them Diligently and loved meeting some of the excellent speakers. To top off the month we got to attend the Christian Worldview Film Festival, where the trailer for Schoolhouse Rocked was an official selection.

Andrew Kern on Classical Education

Andrew Kern is the founder of the CiRCE Institute. We met with Mr. Kern in Greenville, South Carolina, during last year’s Southeastern Great Homeschool Convention. His insights into classical education, education philosophy, rest, wisdom and virtue, and Christian intellect were incredibly valuable, and did much to influence our own homeschooling practices.

Wisdom and virtue, truth, goodness, and beauty, knowing God and making him known – these continue to be hailed as the “important things”. Mr. Kern sums these ideas up perfectly in a single Biblical quote, “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Hopefully, this is an encouragement to you, as you struggle to prioritize and schedule, plan and execute – to maintain balance.
