Aimee Smith and her husband Aron are second generation homeschoolers who are trusting God to fill in the gaps as they educate their children – Jackson (15), Malyn (13), Micah (11), and Caleb (9). Their homeschool story could be chronicled by their struggles with chronic illness, care-giving, grief, learning struggles, and the normal difficulties of daily life. However, they choose to focus on God’s redemption of each trial as part of their family’s education. Combining the classical model of education with a Biblical worldview helps them integrate a lifestyle of learning in their home. As a local Classical Conversations team leader, Aimee recognizes the necessity of community to strengthen one another with courage for the hard task of home education.
