A few key points covered in this video.

  • Chat with Sylvie
  • Sylvie shares her testimony
  • Rooibos tea
  • Before and After testimony
  • Very ill son – it used to be all about the maths and language.
  • What was important before is not any longer – not concerned about the formal education as I used to be
  • Being a family and coming alongside our children and teaching them about their Saviour is what matters now
  • It’s a miracle that he is with us. He came through a great ordeal so I must enjoy his childhood
  • Is academics important?
  • The KONOS file was overwhelming to me – it did not compute. I was trying to teach them knowledge.
  • I had to change everything I thought about education
  • I took KONOS file and saw it differently because it became activities rather than lessons to teach knowledge
  • Used to get exhausted while doing KONOS but not anymore
  • KONOS memory basket
  • Its important to capture some memories of childhood through KONOS living
  • KONOS – God at the top – cone with character traits
  • KONOS flip books – showing the various volumes and the drawings to depict each character unit
  • KONOS is not prescriptive – its a lot of fun
  • Loved, thriving, happy children
  • Shepherd their hearts
  • Doing life together – we do not know if we will be here tomorrow. Tomorrow you may not have that chance so come alongside your children.
  • When I panicked when my husband would panic with me but now he is encouraging me to not panic and believe that what we doing is right because we are at peace.
  • The vision for our family has always been the same – but we did try other things but we came back.
  • KONOS does not need to scare you – take one unit at a time – you need not to be overwhelmed
  • When you try to make it into a structure and all about the knowledge you get stressed and exhausted.
  • Traumatic valley – we want people to experience the FUN and realise that it is not about the knowledge – there are a lot of videos to watch – you do not have to go through the valley to realise that KONOS is fun.
  • Tell people what KONOS is not.
  • It is definitely okay to have fun.
