By the Numbers


28 teaching videos

1 lifetime family membership


1 academy

study guide


2 signature courses


7 supplemental e-books



The membership starts with an introductory video that tells you more about my background and my research—and my dream to repurpose educationin our country and in our world. We imagine a world where children wake up inspired to go to school, feel connected in safe relationships, and go to bed fulfilled at the end of the day.

Stage One


Stage One is foundational to the rest of the stages. It offers a teaching video that will explain the difference between transactional education and transformational education. It will show you the power of an education based on TRANSFORMATIONAL RELATIONSHIPS. You'll also get a free downloadable resource that will help you REDEFINE SUCCESS for your family.

Stage Two

Stage Two offers a deep dive into the truth that STRUGGLE is a GIFT. I share a powerful demonstration in this video to help you navigate struggle in HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS, as opposed to letting struggle come between you and your child.


Stage Three


Stage Three offers an in-depth look at what it means to aim at a NEW TARGET in education. This step will help your family get out of a "performance-obsessed" mindset and invite you to experience a full and free life in a big, big world. This stage also helps you REDEFINE REST.

Stage Four

Stage Four offers you real guidance to help your mornings get started in LIFE-GIVING ways, instead of chaos and complaining. This step includes a video where I tell a story about some ideas I used to help start our school days when I was helping families in my own home. You'll also get a downloadable resource of several SAMPLE SCHEDULES.


Stage Five


Stage Five is a huge resource... all about curriculum and WORTHY WORK. This is the step where you'll learn how to make curriculum choices based on 3 simple criteria that guarantee you're making the best choices for your children. You'll also get a list of great curriculum choices for every subject (and for all ages!) to get you started.

Stage Six

Stage Six offers an in-depth look at helping your child with specific subjects using the transformational model of education. You'll find an e-book called Becoming a Writer, another about All Things Reading, and a third full of ideas for Nature Study. More e-books are coming soon about  math, history and science. Every time we add a new resource, you get the added benefit for free, because you're getting a LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP.


Also in Stage Six, something you can't get anywhere else. John 15 Academy is the only source of an e-book that leads you, step-by-step through a curriculum I've written on THE NEW COVENANT. This curriculum is designed to help your middle school and high school students discover the SCRIPTURAL FOUNDATION for the theology of GRACE. 


Stage Seven


Stage Seven is designed to answer your real questions about transcripts, testing, and college admissions, all in one informative video. More than that, Stage Seven offers you a different way of keeping a record of your child's progress, and you'll receive a downloadable resource FULL of ideas for offering more than a traditional report card. You'll learn how to offer a meaningful REPORT OF GROWTH that both keeps a valid record of curriculum and the work your child has completed AND helps you and your child document the real growth they're experiencing in their personal habits.

Stage Eight

Stage Eight is a 42-page e-book that is a ROADMAP offering real and practical ways parents can connect and love their children well. This book includes links to much of my research and offers more than FIFTEEN practical examples for you to try right away.


Stage Nine


Stage Nine is a big deal! It is an entire online signature course I've created called CONNECT AND RECONNECT. It gives you EIGHT teaching videos, pages of additional readings, and four practical resources for you to download.

Stage Ten


Stage Ten is another big deal. Another COMPLETE online class called Can we Come Home Again? Loving Your Child on the Road to Maturity. 8 more videos, more readings, and more practical resources for you to download.  


Through ten stages, you have been equipped for a transformational education journey that will forever change you and your family. But we don't stop there. We offer one more conclusion video with some advice on how to keep these principles working and how to stay engaged with the transformational model of education. This is a lifelong journey and your lifetime membership is here to help, anytime you need a reminder or some encouragement.  As a lifetime member, you get:
