“Raising Leaders with Moral Clarity in a World of Moral Relativism”
Home schooling parents are well aware of the shocking statistics of how many of our kids walk away from the faith and values upon which they were raised. The world around them has embraced moral relativism. If the Biblical values that built western civilization are to be restored, the next generation must be equipped to be counterculture revolutionaries for truth, justice, and the old American way.

Holly is a wife, mother and storyteller. The adventures with her family have led to some incredible experiences and lessons in real life living. She uses those moments to encourage and inspire other families on their own journey.
Holly and husband Curtis had no idea how amazing and exhausting parenting would be. Then, when they decided to keep the kids at home, the amazing exhaustion magnified! Their choice to home educate came out of necessity; however, they quickly realized this was where they belonged, together at home, learning along the way.
The Giles’ lifestyle of learning is all about family and how they can work together to succeed on the road God has laid out for them. Some days are long and mostly muddy, as the family centers around outdoor activities. Holly believes God is using her family’s ministry to bring other families together in their own unique way.
