Marriage and Homeschooling

Vol. 52, Prg. 1–5
April 19–23, 2004

Sometimes, the challenges of homeschooling can make us forget what's most important-our marriage. And homeschooling is nearly impossible without the framework of a strong marriage supporting it. This week, Mike Farris is joined by his pastor, Joe Holman, to share tips on keeping marriages healthy. They remind couples to work as a team, spend time with each other, and focus on relationships over tasks. By building our marriages, we can strengthen our families and dramatically improve our homeschool experience.

Joe Holman

Joe Holman has been married to his best friend, Denise, for more than 19 years. During that time, the Lord has given them 9 children, and they are expecting their 10th child in September. The best thing Joe has ever done is commit his life to being a follower of Jesus Christ when he was in college pursuing a degree in business. After receiving his master's degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Joe became a pastor in Colorado. Joe has been the pastor and teaching elder of Blue Ridge Bible Church in Purcellville, Virginia, since February 2000. His passion is to enable people to continually experience the presence of God, and to love God more as the result of a deeper understanding of him.
