If you teach a child to read, to write, to work with numbers, train him in character, and give him a love of learning, he could then educate himself. Reading, writing, and working with numbers are the tools of learning. Character is important because, for example, a lazy child will not put out the effort to educate himself; a proud child will not see the need to seek further learning. The love of learning is necessary for the young person to be motivated. But how does a home school mom communicate that love of learning? Lyndsay shares from her efforts to instill this love in each of her children during 16 years of home schooling.
Speaker Information: Lyndsay Lambert, a graduate of Texas Tech University, home schooled her four now-grown children for sixteen years. She has assisted Tim, her husband of more than forty years, in serving the home school community, first in helping to start and lead their local support group and then, from 1990 to 2013, in running the Texas Home School Coalition, the statewide organization committed to serving and protecting Texas home schoolers. She retired this year to have more time to be a grandmother to her five grandchildren and to be the “older woman” that she believes God has called her to be.
