The Stigalls also share about their experiences over the past year with their daughter’s enrollment into a private Christian school. They talk about how their perspective regarding Christian education drastically shifted with the positive changes they saw in their daughter’s life. They encourage parents who may still be on the fence about making the leap to Christian education. There is an entire community of parents who are either making the same decisions they are or parents who have been in the Christian education sphere for years ready to walk alongside them. 

Christine and Chris emphasize the importance of considering which education route to parents should take, what kind of school best aligns with your beliefs as well as the education format your children learn from best. Lastly, they encourage parents that they are not alone in their journey of Making the Leap.
