I loved the idea of homeschooling. I loved the thought that I wasn’t just spinning my wheels in school and playing the popularity game. I wanted to get out of high school and get into college where I would be working directly towards my future career. But, it was more than just a desire, it was my destiny.
When I met David & Kirk Johnson, my dad bet that I would want to date Kirk (a year younger than me) and my mom bet that I would date David (a year older than me). I firmly said that I wasn’t interested in either one!!! I didn’t want a boyfriend! I wanted out of high school and I wanted Jesus!
The first time I met the Johnsons, Kirk came up, shoved this enormously large reptile in my face & said, “Wanta see my Iguana?” I wasn’t particularly scared, but I didn’t care to see the Iguana – especially not that close. Kirk was a 13 y/o boy – need I say more?
David was away on a mission trip to Mexico, so I didn’t get to meet him at first. However, we visited the other Johnsons at their house and were introduced to the ins & outs of homeschooling.
A few weeks later, I was attending a youth meeting / mini-conference and I was supposed to get some homeschooling books from David (Whom I had never met). I approached him and with a nice open ended statement, I said, “So, I hear you went to Mexico…” He glanced at me and replied, “Yea, they didn’t have any windows” and walked away. I stood there stunned thinking, “what just happened?” I knew at that moment that David was either extremely shy or extremely stuck up…
Nevertheless, I had to get those books from David or I would be in trouble from my parents! After I worried and fretted over how I was going to get the books, David finally walked up to me said, “Here” and placed a stack full of books in my hands. Whew! Mission Accomplished! Well, the mission of the books anyway…
