Never fear.

Truth is not fragile. Neither should we be.

To give an education to our children that is rooted in the truth, we need to be willing to tackle the hard questions and the hard books.

Yes, it takes discernment and wisdom that we often lack, but that's why we're working on our own education as well.

"The classroom is a place of joy fueled by the quest for excellence and the productive fear generated by the awesomeness of our ignorance and our inability to transform human reason into wisdom on its own terms when it is unhinged from a living God."
- Rosaria Butterfield, Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert

Be prepared to read and discuss old, hard, and wrong books with your kids.

INTELLECTUAL GROWTH REQUIRES INTELLECTUAL NOURISHMENT.

HOSPITALITY LOVES SINNERS WITHOUT AFFIRMING SIN.

EDUCATION IS THE CONFORMING OF THE HEART TO THE MIND OF CHRIST.

Because all truth is God's truth, and because we are in Christ, Christians do not need to fear or avoid hard questions.

Rosaria Butterfield

classical homeschooler,
writer & speaker

Rosaria was once a tenured professor of English who identified as a lesbian and worked to advance the cause of LGBT equality. After her conversion to Christ in 1999, she came to see the sinfulness of having any identity apart from Him. Rosaria is married to Kent Butterfield, pastor of the First Reformed Presbyterian Church of Durham, and is a home-school mother for 18 years, pastor's wife, author, and speaker. She is helping Christians to better understand their LGBT neighbors and loved ones so that we can lovingly look past labels of sexual identity and share the gospel effectively.

In 2012, she published her conversion memoir, The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert: An English Professor’s Journey to Christian Faith. Her third book, The Gospel Comes with a House Key (2018) addresses the lost art of Christian hospitality.

Rosaria writes about sexuality, identity, Christian hospitality and community, and seeks to encourage all in faithful Christian living and service.
