S13: Robin Gilman - Life Learning

A great deal of our children's education happens outside of textbooks. While Robin Gilman, (mother of ten) loves books and uses curriculum, she will share about how much of our children's learning takes place informally in our daily lives and how parents can be more aware and intentional in shaping this learning for the best. Parents should come away encouraged about how much learning is happening effortlessly.

Biography: Robin has been married to Bible teacher Alan Gilman for 38 years. They have ten children who have all been home educated. Eight are now adults who love God and others, and are contributing to society in a variety of ways: missionary, director of anti-porn ministry, pastor, full-time pro-life work and many other interesting jobs/ministries. Robin still enjoys teaching their two youngest children. Seeing the fruit of home educating her children, Robin loves encouraging moms to “not grow weary in well doing,” testifying that this calling is extremely worth it! To that end she published her first book (“Stress Free Homeschooling – Getting it all Done and Enjoying it”) last year.
