2019/2020 School Theme Verse: Psalms 128:2, “You will enjoy the fruits of your labor…how joyful and prosperous you will be”.
Statement of Faith: We believe there is only One True God, Our Father, The Creator of the Universe, Maker of Heaven and Earth, His Son and our Savior Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, our Comforter and Counselor. We believe in the entire Bible, Old and New Testament to be the inspired, Holy Word of God. We believe in God’s design for marriage, between one man, and one woman. We believe each person is created in God’s image for the purpose of worshipping and serving Him, following His commandments and decrees.
Our Leadership – Michaela Roekle grew up homeschooling from first grade through graduation. Throughout her youth and adulthood, she’s worked in children’s and ladies ministry, and homeschool administration for two schools. Michaela has been married to her husband Brad for 20yrs; they have three children…their eldest who graduated from homeschooling in 2019, their middle who is currently homeschooling in highschool and their youngest in elementary. They have been homeschooling parents for 12 years. In addition to running Grace and Glory, Michaela and her husband serve as Advisory Board Members for CHEA of California (www.cheaofca.org).
We believe each child is a whole person, uniquely created by God and can experience education in a whole-hearted manner for all aspects of life….spiritually, academically, emotionally, mentally and physically. We offer learning experiences as a community to interact with others and explore God’s great world. We encourage parents to exercise their freedom in selecting whatever resources and materials fit their needs.
Parents legally have the freedom to utilize faith-based materials for their students. At Grace and Glory, we also promote the timeless educational methods of Charlotte Mason – a British educator who co-labored with the Holy Spirit and believed that education was about more than passing an exam or getting into the right college. She said education was an atmosphere, a discipline, and a lifestyle.
Above all, it is our prayer that children graduate from Grace and Glory with not only the abilities, but the desire to read God’s Word, share God’s Word and know Him as their personal Lord and Savior. May everything we do, be done for the glory of God. [1 Corinthians 10:31]
