She spent twenty-five years continuing that education from a biblical classical perspective as she and her husband Mike faithfully homeschooled their four children through high school; all of them graduating with their two year degree from IRSC through the dual-enrollment process. The aim of their homeschooling approach was to glorify God by producing intellectual and moral clarity, integrity, purity and discernment. All four children, Joshua, Daniel, Elisabeth and Rebekah, have pursued higher education to the graduate level – law, computer programming, forensic accounting, and literature. Much more importantly, God has graciously brought each of their children to Himself and has placed them in their callings as salt and light to an extremely needy world.

While attending law school Josh made the best decision of his life when he asked his childhood sweetheart, Lindsay, to marry him.  In a momentary lapse of judgment, she said yes. Josh and Lindsay have been blessed with two wonderful little boys named Andrew and Jack who both love to sit and look adoringly into Josh’s face while he reads them stories from Homer’s Iliad and regales them with tales from The Epic of Gilgamesh.  Also, they sometimes like to play lion and tear up Josh’s books to build their forts.  After completing his law degree, Josh practiced law as an attorney for five years and also received a degree in theology when he realized that practicing law was taking too much time that he wanted to spend reading books about dead people.  Josh now studies church history and loves strong coffee, old books, and good conversations with students who are also excited to think God’s thoughts after Him.

Julie Glowacki

Julie Glowacki was born in La Porte, Indiana. When she was 3 years old her family moved to Jupiter, FL. From the time she was able to use a pencil, she was drawing and creating. She will never forget the time when she was 6 years old and her dad brought home new art supplies for her to experiment with. That was the start of the lifelong love of any and every art medium. She is a strong believer in encouraging art as a creative outlet when a child is young. Julie pursued art throughout school and took AP art and pottery in high school. She then went on to study Interior Design at the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale. While in college she was a nanny and also an overseer for a children’s nursery at a gym. She loved working with kids and could not wait to start a family of her own. When her oldest was 3, she began feeling the Lord calling them to school at home to provide a biblical world view and foster their relationship with God. For the past 3 years Julie has co-led a local home school coop and for the past 5, taught art there. She is extremely thankful for the opportunity to home school and to have programs like GHC to support and inspire our children to grow in their walk with the Lord with like minded believers.

She worked in preschool’s for a total of four years in South Africa.
