New Year, Renewed Vision

For the Kingdom Co-op Class Picture 2018-2019

“Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.”  ~Matthew 6:33

Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in our homeschool co-op!  

My name is Ruthe Reid and I am the new Principal / Director of For The Kingdom Homeschool Co-op.  Our family has been homeschooling for 16 years. I am a second-generation homeschooler; my mom homeschooled me in the jungles of Peru while missionaries.  My parents’ lives and examples gave me a love of learning, serving, and leading. At the age of five, I gave my heart to Jesus and have been learning to trust in Him and His leadership ever since.  My husband and I met on the mission field and while in high school, fell in love and married in the U.S. several years later. Now 5 children and one military career later, we are so grateful God has planted us here in Missouri.  

New Leadership For A New Year  God has used For the Kingdom Homeschool Co-op to grow and strengthen our family. We have attended FTK for the last 3 years while I have taught in the Secondary program.  During this time, He blessed us with strong friendships and a close community. Last year, FTKs founder Melissa Holstrom handed over the reigns of directing FTK to me.  After much prayer and seeking wisdom, I felt that God invited us to move forward with FTK. I am honored and excited to join with so many amazing families and leaders to continue what God started.

We want to give our children a strong foundation in knowing God and a place to encourage their hearts to love and serve others while growing in character and academic excellence.  This year we are restructuring to help us grow a stronger homeschool community.  I love God’s promises to us. “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” (Phil. 1:6).

I am excited to invite you to our new year together!  We have a wonderful leadership team preparing for this coming school year and an excellent Elementary and Secondary program for homeschool families.  We would love for you to join us!
