Just the name of my blog gives me away. Hi, There! I am Sarah Bliss, author of Holistic Homeschooler. I am happily married to the man of my dreams and together we raise two adorable children
We obviously homeschool and believe home education is more than academics.
I hold a personal philosophy that homeschooling is holistic and encompasses the whole child-body, mind, heart, spirit.
When I refer to the spirit, I mean the holy spirit. That ones own spirit needs daily nourishment from the word of God. I do believe in GOD and Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior. I follow the teachings of the bible, it is a part of who I am and who we are as a family. To me this means that I am an imperfect human being, that I have flaws, that I have sin. I am not a Christian because I am perfect nor do I pretend to be but I strive to be my best out of my love for our creator. I am only saved through Christ and his sacrifice. This is what it means to be Christian.
I homeschool mainly using a Charlotte Mason Philosophy of Education. I absolutely love nature which is why the nature study aspect of Charlotte’s philosophy really speaks to me. We spend hours outside, on nature walks or the occasional hike.
Additionally, I have a burning desire to take our homeschool Journey on the road and share our travel adventures with anyone who will read or listen. Yet, this is a plan in progress so for now we are casually road-schooling.
Finally-I am a Registered Nurse, with the heart to spread educational information on health, wellness, and physical fitness. I am a distance runner enthusiast and from the encouragement of my husband, I attempt to consistently strength train.
I hope to be a source of encouragement and inspiration as we travel along this homeschool journey together.
