Barrios Family - RLC Story

Initially I enrolled my children in RLC to have a break from homeschooling during the week. I quickly learned RLC wasn’t just a “break for mom” each week. For the first time ever my children were being seen by teachers and church leaders the way God created them. Wow! This had such a profound effect on their hearts. Both my children grew in confidence and independence while learning a valuable biblical worldview. The staff at RLC is led by the Holy Spirit and is passionate about their ministry. Children are seen in their God given gifts and talents while their strengths are fostered. My husband and I are excited at the impact RLC has on our children and the community has become family. Our children are poured into and can grow in the ways of the Lord. What a huge blessing!
