With the Christian homeschool movement beginning in the 1970s, a generation of homeschooled Christians are now adults and have gained notoriety for their work. Here are five homeschooled Christians who are making a difference.
Tim Tebow became the only college sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy when he was the starting quarterback for the University of Florida Gators in 2007. The next year he would lead the Gators to a national championship and take home the game’s MVP award. He was drafted in the first round by the Denver Broncos and also played for the New York Jets.
Tebow’s parents were Baptist missionaries in the Philippines. His athletic accomplishments influenced a law passed in Florida that allows homeschooled students to compete in public school sports programs. Other states, such as Virginia, have attempted to copy the “Tim Tebow law.”
Only 23-years-old, “Soul Surfer” Bethany Hamilton already had a movie made about her life. Ten years ago, the professional surfer survived a shark attack and was left without her left arm. The tragedy, though, did not stop her from continuing to compete.
