Course Description:

This class will be aimed at covering all the daily-living habits that every homeschool Mom is trying to teach her child,
hopefully presented in a fun and authentic way that will be informative, practical, and based on God’s word, without being preachy.
This class will be mostly geared towards students that are not naturally strong "type A" personalities, although all students can benefit
and learn from these concepts.

The high school class (10th -12th) will be offered two separate semesters and will cover skills that sometimes
fall between the cracks of “formal education” and what is needed in the work place, college, or life in general.
Self-evaluation, positive attitude, good work habits, decision-making, good citizenship, service, and study skills will be a few of the topics covered.

This class will include outside reading and putting new habits into practice.
Grading will not focus on tests and papers, but will largely be evaluated on class participation and personal practice.
My goal for the students will be to gain a better understanding of who they are (in relationship to who God is)
and how to show up in their own lives, as their best selves, for any and all of what lies ahead.
