I’m Keren, a church planter’s wife and a stay-at-home mom of two based in Manila, Philippines. I spend my spare time drinking a lot of coffee, trying to keep my ornamental plants alive, reading and collecting books or watching crime shows online.
Are you a pastor’s wife?
Yes, I am. I serve alongside my husband as a ministry volunteer in a confessional Presbyterian church in Quezon City, Philippines.
Are you a Calvinist or a Reformed Christian?
Yes, I subscribe to the Westminster Standards as a faithful summary of teaching found in the Bible.
How old are you?
I am in my 30s.
How old are your kids?
Little Miss is 6. Little Man is 3.
Are you homeschooling?
Yes, we are! Little Miss in enrolled with a local homeschool provider, while the Little Man is homeschooling independently.
What curriculum are you using for your homeschool?
Curriculum originally means “a race” or “course of the race” in Latin, so it’s something that you do as opposed to something that you buy. With this in mind, our homeschool curriculum is drawn from the philosophy and pedagogy of Classical Christian Education, a traditional approach to education with emphasis on the seven liberal arts and the great books.
Why do you blog?
I see this blog as an avenue where I write out my thoughts on homeschooling, Scripture, theology, education, marriage, ministry, parenting, and homemaking in general. This blog serves as an outlet for all those attempts, and them some.
What are your biggest dreams and aspirations?
My biggest dream and passion project is to develop locally published, confessional Reformed and Presbyterian children’s resources and Classical Christian homeschool materials for children.
