It was so much fun to spend time last week talking to Brian Ricks of 101 Homeschool Ideas! He has recently completed a doctorate degree in Educational Leadership and wants to aid families through their first experiences with homeschooling. His organization is offering a fantastic series of interviews and collecting teaching ideas and app reviews to help families. I’m really excited about what they are putting together!
Brian is currently running an interview series and talking to individuals who have important ideas and lessons to share about their own educational journey. The following is the first few paragraphs he wrote about our interview and you can follow the link below to read his entire summary and listen to the podcast:
“In this podcast I interviewed Audrey Rindlisbacher from the Ten Boom Institute. I really wanted to interview Audrey because I stumbled across her name at a homeschooling conference and looked into the Ten Boom Institute. There were some things about her goals with the Institute that I wanted to know more about, and so I hope they will be things that you will want to know more about as well.
First, and most important for our purposes, Audrey and her husband have tweaked their children’s educational experience so that they can help their children gain a sense of self and purpose earlier in life. I loved that goal and wanted her to share a little bit about how they knew when it was time to adjust what they were doing. As you listen to the podcast, you will see that Audrey is not afraid to challenge the process if she sees her children becoming disengaged or uninterested in the educational process.
Second, I was really interested in why she would be willing to spend money to attend a non-accredited university: George Wythe College. I have heard of the College, and was really excited to learn more about her experience there and what she gained from the classes.
Third, the more I learned about the Ten Boom Institute, the more I hoped I could convince Audrey to do the interview. There is some great stuff there for parents that want to continue their own education. If you have ever wanted to read the classics, but were intimidated by the old language, historical settings, or anything else, then you need to check out what Audrey is doing at the Ten Boom Institute…”
