“There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of human society, are created, strengthened, and maintained. --Winston Churchill, 1954
Scott & Tracey are blessed with 4 children (born from 2001-2006, 2 girls and 2 boys). Convinced that parents are the child’s foremost guide and shepherd, they have educated their children at home from the start. They consider homeschooling the finest way to ensure their children mature and fulfill all that God created them to be. God has designed each child with strengths and talents best nurtured within a safe, loving home.
Time is a resource that disappears quickly, and with homeschooling they can maximize the moments available according to the goals and situations of life’s seasons. Their children have a relaxed schedule that allows them the freedom to explore more than just academics: music, crafts, Lego, and all things medieval have a part in daily living and are valuable to developing the whole person. The entire family appreciates not being constrained by a brick-and-mortar school year calendar.
Scott & Tracey believe that even with life’s twists and turns, family living is much simpler, straight-forward, and life-giving when it is experienced together full time. It is beautiful to see four siblings grow up to be the closest of friends and allies, while at the same time working out their differences and surrendering to each other (a work in progress!).
The Koehn family enjoys being an encouragement to all families on their unique journeys. WISDOM has offered immeasurable support, direction, and inspiration, for which they are deeply grateful.
