What's in a name?

So why did we name our homeschool? After all, what is in a name? There's no point in having a certain name or any name at all if we don't live up to our name.

We can name our school the happy homeschool and be yelling at each other all day. We could name our homeschool because we want people to think we're something special, something that we're not. Appearances.

But, on the other hand, maybe making a name helps us to focus on who we want to be.
And that is a good reason to have one.

And so, we call our homeschool Fisher Academy International ~ Teaching Home

The initials stand for FAITH; because without faith, we would never arrive at anything.

  • Fisher because the Lord has called us to be fishers of men. It is our goal to raise up little fishers-of-people, who follow the Fisherman himself.
  • Academy because without it we'd be FITH and that just doesn't work for me ;)
  • International because we are American, but we live in Peru. But our real country is that whose architect and builder is God. So, we're sojourners. Sort of without a country... for now.
  • Teaching Home because we do teach at home. We aren't necessarily of the type to think that everything 'school-ish' is bad, but I really love the term teaching home, because that's what we do. We learn at home. Life is all about learning.

Great acronym ! Thanks for coming by my Memoirs post. I look forward to getting to know you. It's great to meet another missionary family who reaches the lost and leads them to Jesus.

My husband is a missionary here in America at a Rescue Mission. We help reach the homeless and addicted individuals and lead them tot he Lord then disciple them for 12 months. We help them find jobs and get their lives back together.

I love serving others and the Lord.
