Overview

"We may not have come across the plains in a covered wagon, but I am sure we made it into the "rumble seat" of a Model T as far as the pioneering days of homeschooling are concerned!" jokes Mrs. Lawson. Ruth and her husband Jim have been married for thirty-five years, and are the proud parents of five homeschooling graduates. They are also the co-founders of FFCA, an accredited private school for homeschoolers located in Lakeland, Florida. The school's monthly newsletter, The Faithful Servant News, is what inspired the incorporation of the homey letters written by her five children to their grandparents into a column of encouragement for other families. Through their daily life experiences, she hoped to share laughter, and sometimes tears, but always the knowledge that with God all things are possible. (Even Algebra!)

The Lawson's are still active in the homeschooling community through the school, but their true enjoyment is found in their six grandchildren, and in living on the east coast of Florida. The Model T has been traded for an RV, and the daily experiences are now learned anew through the magic of childhood discoveries as seen through the eyes of the next generation. "And now there are no tests!"

Meet the Author

Ruth Alice Ellison (Rae) was born in Xenia, Ohio, and became a Lawson when she married James in 1976. During the years from 1977-1989, their family grew to include Donald, Rebekah, David, John, and Kari, who would all be the inspiration of their parents' commitment to the biblically-based means of education---homeschooling. The children would also provide the anecdotes central to (and the success of) a homeschooling column lovingly titled Appleseeds.

Mainly because of her mother's love of reading, story writing, and musical compositions, Ruth gained a deep appreciation of the written word herself, always excelling in both high school and college English courses. She had been named after her mother's sister, Ruth Shinn, who was also an avid reader, as well as an encouragement to her niece's love of storytelling. The dedication to "Aunt Ruth" in this first book, Appleseeds and Peach Pits: Homeschooling in the Garden of Eden, is a promise kept to someone who believed it could be accomplished, no matter the passage of time.
