Homeschool - General Information
Summit has set in motion what is to come in my life

Mikaela heard about Summit over a year before stepping on campus in Manitou Springs, CO. As a budding Marketing and Journalism student at Dordt College, Mikaela loves writing and connecting with people.  

“I think really, during my freshman year (in college), I have had more of a secular worldview than I had originally thought. And coming to Summit, I have really learned how the Christian conservative worldview is so true. Even though I claimed to be a Christian conservative, I still believed that if a woman was raped or had something traumatic happen to her then abortion is okay in that circumstance.”
One lecture in particular stood out to Mikaela. During his “Case for Life” lecture, Scott Klusendorf talked about abortion in the case of rape. Klusendorf asked the students two questions:
  • Would you want the death penalty given to the rapist?
  • Would you murder the woman that has conceived the child?
When the students answered “no” to those questions, Klusendorf asked the students, why then, would it be okay to murder the baby, who is the most innocent of all?
This discussion put things into perspective for Mikaela and helped correct her own views on the pro-life position. “I was like WOW, that kind of just struck my heart, and that was what just kinda flipped the switch for me, and my viewpoint really changed.”
Summit Student Conferences exist to help students think through their convictions and answer hard questions. Mikaela’s thoughts and ideas about important cultural topics have been challenged during her time at Summit as she has engaged with like-minded peers in small groups, learned from Christian leaders during lectures and open forums, and explored answers to hard questions about her faith, purpose, and identity. 
“I had struggled with identity all through college, and I thought that Christians just always pushed their faith on others, and I wanted to be someone who believed my own thing and just talked about it at church. But at Summit I have learned that sports, theater, and other things don’t define who I am. Christ in me is my identity. I don’t have everything figured out, but Summit has set in motion what is to come in my life. God is who makes me me, and Jesus Christ and his sacrifice and his wiping away all my sins have made me who I am today, and that’s why I am able to touch the lives of other people and proclaim his name!”

5 Easy Steps to a more Organized Homeschool Tags: children decisions encouragement

5 Easy Steps to a more Organized Homeschool


    • Each January Dan and I spend several days praying and planning for our next year—not just homeschool, but every area of our lives. See how we did it here: Purposeful Planning.
    • What are your goals for this year? For five years from now? If you don’t know where you’re going, you will have difficulty getting there.
    • We always started school in mid-August and took the first two weeks in September off for vacation.
      • This gave us time to test our plan and talk and revise it during our time off.

    • You will feel a lot more confident if you have lesson plans done ahead. I usually tried to get two or three months’ plans done before we started school so I wasn’t always flying by the seat of my pants.

    • The year we started homeschooling, our 16-month-old son was diagnosed with leukemia. I struggled with how in the world I was going to handle three children under six, homeschool, and leukemia. Dan said, “If you get devotions and Scripture memory work done, consider it a good day.”
    • You can catch up on academics, but character training needs to be done daily. It’s difficult to repair character issues, so we need to place these above academics. Training our children in Godly character must be at the top of the list. I know it’s challenging to stop in the middle of a lesson—again—to cover something we just dealt with five minutes ago, but you will reap the rewards down the road.
    • Don’t rethink your decision to homeschool every year. When Eric had leukemia we learned a valuable lesson that we used often during our 21+ years of homeschooling. When things get tough or difficult or even seem impossible, we don’t look for a way out. Instead, we ask the Lord to help us get His view—His perspective. He’s the best consultant available, and He’s always ready and willing to help.



    • Find a way to organize your school supplies that works for you. There are a lot of options online. Find the ones that will make your days flow smoothly.

    • Relax, God really is in control.
    • Stay in the Word. Do whatever is necessary to stay connected to the source.


“I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” John 15:5 KJV
