From day one, our dad (James) creatively thought outside the box when it came to education. Growing up, our schooling was project based, spirit directed, service oriented, and agency motivated! We’ve shared some of our experiences in webinars, interviews and vidcasts. See videos below!
What does a “Zion education” look like? Today, there are many battlelines where the adversary is assaulting the kingdom of God. What if the hours spent “homeschooling” could be used to make a difference, not only in our families, but in the world? What if the home is the most undervalued, underestimated and forgotten weapon against the adversary in our age? How can we revolutionize our homes into productive environments that impact the world for good? How can we successfully reach our apathetic youth? How do we prepare our children for the “real world” without being conformed to the world?

Hannah’s Story + Conversion Experience
“A few years ago, I sat down with Tresta Neil to share my experience growing up homeschooled and how I gained my own testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I share some of my personal experiences working on documentaries during the early years of the Joseph Smith Foundation (https://josephsmithfoundation.org) and the principles that changed my heart and my life! The gospel of Jesus Christ is REAL, it is practical and it is needed now more than ever before. I hope the testimony of God’s work in my life can give hope to other young men and woman who are looking for hope and direction.” (Hannah)
