Our family lives between Hubbard and Coolidge on a ranch where we raise beef cattle and dairy goats. We are members of Salem Lutheran Church in Malone. I played soccer, learned to play the viola and sang to every song on the radio growing up. Today I still chase balls, play viola in church and sing constantly. I’ve been married since 1999 to the greatest man I have ever known and God blessed us with two children.
I graduated from MCC in Vocational Nursing in ‘02, married in ’03 and now have 6 wonderful children, 4 girls and 2 boys. I practiced nursing for 6 years off and on (between having babies) in geriatrics, obstetrics and psych settings until the birth of our 4th child. Currently we home school High school, elementary, primary and have a toddler. Our eldest daughter went to public school through 2nd grade and then has been homeschooled ever since. My husband and I are Commander of Awana children’s ministry for King of Glory church in Bellmead. Clint and I have been married for 13 years. Two years ago our family moved to Golinda where we now have room for animals, play and entertaining.
I am also an Independent Creative Partner for Initials-Inc. I very much enjoy getting together with friends and being silly (laughter is good medicine you know). More than anything else I am a daughter of the One True King making me a Princess. (That is the identity I want all my children and yours to take upon themselves.)
Jennifer graduated from Baylor with a BS and MS in Computer Science. She and her husband (also a Baylor grad) have been married for 24 years and have 11 children. The oldest will be starting college this year, and you will be meeting the others at co-op! Music is an important part of our lives. Jennifer marched snare for 3 years in the Baylor Golden Wave Band and is a percussionist with the Waco Community Band. The Sittons live in Lacy-Lakeview, and enjoy playing outside, making noise, climbing trees, playing with our farm animals (chickens, turkeys, ducks and goats), jumping on the trampoline, gardening, learning music, and reading.

Kendra is a full-time Jesus lover, husband helper, childcare worker, sanitation specialist, and sibling arbitrator. She also teaches homeschool. Her favorite subjects are history, geography, and literature and teaches from a biblical perspective. Her favorite teaching tools are a Bible and an 1828 Noah Webster Dictionary. She taught her own children largely using the Principle Approach, a methodology that begins each subject with the word of God. She’s a Mom and a Mimi in a large family. She loves to read and to learn. She loves children (even her own!) and tries not to take herself or the craziness of home schooling too seriously.
I have been married for over 22 years to a loving, wonderfully supportive husband, and together we have three amazing boys. I graduated in 2000 from Tarleton State University and began my career as a teacher the following year. We became a full-time homeschooling family in 2012 and joined the F3 family in 2019, which has been such a blessing. We love sharing our lives, our love of Jesus, and the talents we have been given with others that have chosen the road less traveled. I look forward to another terrific year with my F3 family.
