Nearly twenty-two years ago God allowed my husband, Mitchell, and I to begin one of our greatest adventures: homeschooling. I didn’t know anyone who taught their children at home, but we felt a strong calling for numerous reasons. Because the Bible is preeminent in our lives, we strongly believed Deuteronomy 6:5-7 (“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”) was a direct call to homeschool. We were young, inexperienced parents, and we saw older friends whose children, entering junior high, were struggling with negative peer pressure, rebellion, and other forces constantly challenging their Christian upbringing. So we felt that during the majority of those formative years, our kids needed consistent training at home under our watchful eye, instead of away from home where we couldn’t be certain our faith, values and conduct were being reinforced. Thus, the journey of a lifetime began!
We have now celebrated 30 years of marriage, raised 4 great kids, loved many pets, participated in family mission trips, made lifelong friends, and lived in some great locations. Caidon, our oldest, graduated from Howard Payne, married Jeremy Glover in 2013 and earned her Master’s from Baylor this May. Carolin attended Howard Payne University for a couple of years and is now working at an assisted living/ memory care facility in Laguna Hills, CA and serving on the launch team for Grace Community. Curstin will be graduating early this December from Texas Tech University Health Science Center with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and is planning on staying in Lubbock for a little longer since Colton, the baby of the family, will be attending Texas Tech this fall where he also plans to pursue a degree in the medical field. Colton also serves as a volunteer for Somervell County Fire Department, and is working to finish his paramedic license. Homeschooling is a lifestyle and a family must be led to start down this path. There will be many challenges to overcome, and days you wonder, What in the world was I thinking? However, you will also create a lifetime of memories, learn more than you ever knew possible, and be challenged spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. I promise you will never look back and say, “I regret those days and time I devoted to my children’s education, spiritual growth, and upbringing.”
As director of LBA I want to encourage you in your calling and assist you in educating your children. We have a team of dedicated, well-trained teachers who love what they do and are very good at it! Let us help make this the best year ever and walk alongside you in your own homeschool journey.

Lakeside Baptist Church
Regina George firstname.lastname@example.org
In November of 2007, the Church Council of Lakeside Baptist church voted unanimously to start Lakeside Baptist Academy to be a ministry of the church and under its umbrella of protection. We began with about 30 students and a faculty of 8 that had a whopping budget of about $15,000. This year we will have over 100 students and a budget over $260,000. We are a self-supported ministry of Lakeside which means we must generate what it costs to run our school. The partnership has been a win-win for the church and school. LBA is a unique ministry in that there really isn’t any other school quite like us out there. Our student body and faculty come from all around the surrounding Hood County area. We have families that attend LBA from Aledo, Benbrook, Tolar, Lipan, Weatherford, Walnut Springs, Glen Rose and Nemo.
LBA is set up much like college classes where you attend M/W/F or T/Th. We simply attend school Tuesday-Thursday, and Mondays and Fridays the kids are home doing homework from home. All our teachers are degreed and most are certified teachers. While students do have to pay to attend, they soon realize that we are a bargain and very affordable compared to other private school.
