Introducing: The Gillie Family and Christ Centred Families Australia
Hayden and Rhonda live on a country property close to Warrnambool in the beautiful South West region of Victoria.
They have been married for 32 years, have been blessed with nine children, 6 girls/3 boys, and have home educated for 25 years. What a journey!
Hayden has always been self-employed. Over the years as a gardening contractor and more recently very involved in housing and real estate development which we do, as much as possible, as a family. Rhonda married a visionary and has had to hang on for the ride but really, in many ways, she is the glue and brains of the outfit. Rhonda is the home maker. She is the organiser, the one who manages to pull all things together, the servant hearted one who blesses others in practical ways. Definitely a busy wife and mother!
Following a God given calling or vision can be daunting. Hayden and Rhonda, with the support of family and friends, have sensed the importance of “going out” to share their testimony with the intention of encouraging and inspiring families, especially those who home-school, or who would love to and are prayerfully considering it.
Having Christ centred families is a God inspired aspiration. Like the Apostle Paul we have not attained but we press on (Phil. 3:12). Individually and in our families we are very often not Christ centred. Home-schooling provides a wonderful environment to nurture this calling on our lives.
We are trusting, by God’s grace to impart, something of the reality of following our Lord Jesus, by faith, into restoring what it means to be Christ centred families in a society that is destroying its own foundations and is at enmity with the traditional view of marriage and family.
The ministry of home education is more important than the mechanics. Character development is more important than curriculum. We are called to “Live to Love”. We are looking forward to meeting like-minded families and fellow pilgrims on the narrow way. We are believing to see Godly vision birthed and confirmed as we fellowship with God and each other. These things we write that your joy may be full. 1 John 1:3-4.
