An encouraging and equipping conversation for all homeschoolers. Explore the beauty and simplicity of a classical, Christian education and learn how YOU can create an environment that will inspire your child to seek truth and beauty in every endeavor.
Why should my kids stay in Classical Conversations during high school? There are cheaper co-ops in my area, and the state provides free dual enrollment and free online learning, so who needs CC?
Seven years ago, these common questions from parents stopped Lynn in her tracks. She had no answers (yet!) but developed a passion to know what made CC special. She researched modern education, read Leigh’s trilogy (The Core, The Question, and The Conversation) and bribed high school students with Starbucks to chat with her about their educational experience. Not only would she become “book smart” about Classical Christian education, but she would be blessed to spend six years in the Challenge classroom, trying out everything she learned on real, live students! There she would actualize her journey from bondage to secular expectations to the freedom of a Christ centered learning experience.
Lynn and her husband, Jim, live in St. Petersburg, Florida, where they’ve raised two sons, James and Joseph. James graduated from Challenge IV and is a student at the University of South Florida, while Joseph attends Challenge III. When not attending to her favorite roles as wife and mom, she’s been a CC director for seven years and led the Gulf Region as Sales Director for the past two years.
God has gifted Lynn with positions of vision casting and mentorship over the years. She has helped CC field leaders and families see their educational journey more clearly and looks forward to seeing a whole generation of students walking in the self-discipline and responsibility of freedom to pursue the good works which God prepared in advance for them to do. Until then, she rejoices in carrying on with Five Common Topics and Challenge themes.
