Dear Steve & Teri,
I came to the conference you had in Greenville, South Carolina, last month, and I just have to share with you what the Lord has done in my life and the life of my husband since then. I am a new homeschool mom and had never heard of your ministry before. I thought I would be getting tips on how to homeschool. I didn’t know the Lord would speak to me so directly through what you both said. We have never had a family Bible time. We’ve known we need to, but our attempts just seemed awkward. We now have a Bible time every evening. We also read Sarah’s first book most evenings – my daughter calls it “Honey time.” My husband is taking a more active role in what I’m doing with the kids. We’ve written down our goals for our family and we’re trying to make every decision in light of those goals. My husband has always been what you would call a good man, a rule follower. He is a Sunday school teacher, a former deacon, but he has always lacked a true passion for the Lord. You should hear him now! He wants to talk about the Lord all the time. He’s truly a changed man. It’s amazing what the Lord will do in us when we’re obedient.
Sorry to run on and on. We’re just excited! There are so many things we heard at your conference that just confirmed what I know the Lord had been telling us.
Thank you so much for being bold enough to follow the Lord no matter the opposition you faced and for sharing your lives with the rest of us. We pray that the Lord will continue to bless your family and your ministry.
Sarah’s note: Thank you, Leigh, for giving us permission to share your testimony with others.
In addition, we’re looking forward to seeing some of you on our next trip out West!
Another verse I read this morning in my Bible time and loved!
“And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee.”
–2 Chronicles 14:11
