My name is Beth van der Hoek, and I have been married to my husband for over 27 years.  We have 9 children, ranging in ages from 26 down to newborn!  The Lord "gently shoved" us into homeschooling when the oldest was ready for kindergarten over 20 years ago, and we have not regretted it.
Although we started with another Christian curriculum in 1995, we made the switch to BJU Press Distance Learning in 2000.  To be honest, I made the switch with reluctance, because I was convinced that I was already using the best curriculum.  A difficult pregnancy that included bed rest, however, made it imperative that I bring in "assistant teachers" to make it possible to continue homeschooling. It didn't take long before I realized that the Lord had led us to make the switch, because the BJU Press materials were by far a better fit for our family.  The children loved their classes, and the entire family would often gather around to watch!  Furthermore, I discovered that the BJU Press curriculum did a much better job of teaching my children critical thinking skills rather than just focusing on memorization.
The biggest thing to win me over to the BJU Press materials, however, was the Biblical integration found in ALL of the subjects.  Even before switching from the other publisher, we had already switched to a popular secular math curriculum, figuring that "math was math".  It was the BJU Press Pre Algebra book that changed my mind!  I was blown away as I flipped through it, realizing that this was a book that started with the premise that the Bible is the foundation ... even in math.  It wasn't just a secular book with Christian words added to it.  It was a book that would strengthen my children's faith in our Creator God.  Rather than just being neutral, this was a math book that would help instill the spiritual values we wanted them to learn!
For the past 8 years, it has been my privilege to introduce other parents to the BJU Press curriculum.  I love seeing the hope return to a weary mom's eyes as she realizes that she CAN continue to homeschool.  I love hearing stories about how children are loving school again.  As I travel to conventions and meetings, I love watching the students get excited as they look through the books.  Most of all, I love being able to offer materials that will can help the entire family grow in their walk with the Lord!
