Christine Hall and her husband, John, have been married for 26 years and have seven children, all of whom she is homeschooling independently for kindergarten through graduation from high school. John and Christine relocated to Dunlap, California almost 2 decades ago in order to raise their family within walking distance of the Greek Orthodox Monastery of the Theotokos, the Life-Giving Spring. John and Christine's four oldest children are now adults, and the three youngest are still homeschooling. Christine was received into the Orthodox Church during her childhood, together with her parents and siblings, and her father is an Orthodox priest serving a mission parish in the Antiochian archdiocese. Christine is in her 19th year of homeschooling.
