Announcing New Open Series on Courtship
By R.L. Stollar, HA Community Coordinator
As alumni of Christian homeschooling, many of us tried to kiss dating goodbye. We strove for purity, not passion. We wanted God to write our love story.
Through popular homeschool speakers like Reb Bradley, Jonathan Lindvall, Josh Harris, and Eric and Leslie Ludy, our parents desired to resurrect for us the courtship model of decades and centuries past. Some of us courted, did everything right, and our relationships were held up as the pinnacle of excellence; others of us courted, did everything right, too — only to see our relationships crumble and families torn apart. Still others of us refused to submit to the model, dating behind our parents’ backs, throwing our “purity” to wind — and ended up in loving, committed relationships. Or not.
Regardless of the results of your courtship story (or stories), you are welcome to share your experiences during HA’s next open series.
* Deadline for “Courtship” submissions: Saturday, February 14, 2015. *
