Thank you for stopping by to visit us at The Character Corner (previously the Courtship Connection).  I’m Kathie, wife to Alan,  mother of eight children, and homeschooling mom of 28 years.   My heart’s desire and passion as a parent is to know God personally, and help my kids develop a love for God, and to grow in Godly character.  We started the Character Corner in order to provide parents with resources that have been helpful to us in accomplishing these goals throughout our parenting and homeschooling journey.

Over the years of raising and teaching our children, we have found some resources that are just “ok”, and others that have helped us greatly!  If a resource had the “WOW” factor for us, I added them to the materials on our website so other parents could benefit from them as well.  My goal is to help and encourage parents as they try to raise their kids to have Godly character, and to walk in purity.  The focus is on pursuing and winning the heart of your children.

I also love to encourage through my blog, and through speaking at homeschool conferences, mother/daughter banquets, and church seminars.  It’s always a blessing to meet and talk with like-minded parents.

Relax and browse our site, and when you have time to “visit”, stop in at my blog. Just to get you started, here are SIX of my most popular posts:
