The Olsen Family Homeschool Mission Statement
Our purpose in homeschooling is to give our children an individualized,
quality education with a solid foundation of traditional values, Christian
character, Biblical standards, and faith in Christ Jesus.
Our belief is that learning is a lifelong adventure in which the whole
family shares; and that children's minds readily absorb knowledge when
they have stability in their surroundings, love, encouragement, and discipline,
together with the freedom to wonder, explore, imagine, and ask questions.
Our goal is for our children to be independent thinkers, able to learn
at their own pace, pursue their own interests, and develop confidence
and self-discipline in the comfort and security of their own home.
Our plan is to love, encourage, teach, and correct our children; to
protect them from negative peer pressure, false teachings, and bad temptations
that would harm their developing spirit; and to surround our children
with authority figures who openly express love for the Son of God.
Our hope is that with the Lord's blessing we will raise our children
to do their best, to realize their special talents, to be concerned for
the needs of others, to become responsible citizens, to be morally and
spiritually wise, to be skillful and knowledgeable in every area that
will be useful to them in their future, and to grow up to live fulfilling
lives that glorify God.
"Train up a child in the way he should
go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." ~Proverbs 22:6
