Hi! Thank you for visiting Coastal Conservatory
…. Created by our family for anyone ready to take steps toward living within a greater vision for their family.
For the past 27 years my parents have been in the midst of a life-long journey of discovering and implementing practices to align our daily lives with our family’s vision, purpose, and mission. It has been a complicated and arduous journey so far (if you have a family, I think you know what I mean), but we have learned some things along the way that we want to share, with the hope that you will benefit from our experience. We will share our successes, but more importantly, you will want to learn as much as you can from our mistakes and failures so you don't have to repeat them. Likewise, we are still on the journey, are in need of help, and hope to learn from your experience as well.
Presently, we are a homeschooling, home-business-running family of eight whose mission is to pursue, as a matter of first importance, God’s design in every area of life. We haven’t always homeschooled or pursued home business, but we now strongly believe they are integral to our mission.
If you would like to join us on this journey, and learn how to work from home while involving your entire family, this is the place for you!
Not too long ago, and for much of history, family businesses were the norm. Usually, this took the form of an agrarian lifestyle, but family restaurants, stores, and companies were common as well. With industrialization and the institution of a public school system structured to create competent factory workers, society changed, and today it is common-place for the family to be split-up, and working separately. Today, often both parents work (for separate employers) and the kids go to school (though siblings are separate from each other in different grades). At the end of the day, these separated individuals come home and try to coexist in the same house. As a result of the separation, families are weakened. This is not a life we wanted for our family or our future families.
Over the course of the past five years, we have managed to successfully grow a family home business. While our journey is only beginning, it is our goal to work together as a family on many different business ventures according to the particular vocation each individual in the family is called to fulfill.
Are you ready to take your next step toward living out the vision, purpose, and mission of your family? We're thrilled to have you on the journey with us here at Coastal Conservatory!
