Christine Jennings met her husband Matthew Jennings at the St. Nicholas Ranch more than ten years ago while he was helping with camp ministries and she was attending an iconography workshop. They now have five children who Christine teaches from home, ages two years through nine years old.
The Jennings family loves to spend their time outdoors doing building projects, gardening, exploring, and living a country lifestyle. They are a hands-on, do-it-yourself, creative family.
In the past Christine has taught Sunday School courses for high schoolers, been a camp counselor for junior-high age children, worked to help in an Orthodox Christian co-op, and has homeschooled her children both through charter programs as well as independently at home. She was also an active member of her childhood Serbian parish choir.
Christine was home-schooled by her mother with a Charlotte Mason learning approach from fourth grade through junior high. She attended public high school as an independent study student, and graduated from highschool early (in her junior year). After high school graduation she attended Fresno City College as an art major, and is still passionate about and continues her creative education to this day.
