Frances Arthur holds a degree in Music Education from Tennessee Tech University. She taught music in the public school system for eight years before opting to stay home with her two sons, Ben and David. Homeschooling provided plenty of opportunities for her to be back in the classroom at homeschool cooperatives and tutorials where she successfully taught classes in music, choir, space science, grammar, civics, US history, 20th century history, government, economics, and an Emotional Health and Intelligence curriculum that she wrote.
Frances lives with her husband, Dale, on a 40-acre beef cattle farm in Middle Tennessee with their Devil-Dog, Opha, a spirited Blue Heeler. She volunteers with Tennessee Eagle Forum as the Student Eagle Director for Tennessee, teaching high school students across the state how to effectively participate in their government. She also serves as the National Student Eagle Chairman for Eagle Forum.
In her spare time, Frances manages to spend 8-11 hours each week on a dance floor improving her skills as a competitive ballroom dancer.
Life Lessons for Graduates
Christian Inspiration – Life Skills
Before you were born, God planned this exact moment. It is no coincidence you are reading this book, contemplating life after high school. God yearns for you to discover the life He designed for you to live—your purpose and mission.
People are frequently puzzled by their pursuit of the purpose of life. We are commonly unaware of the starting point and the right questions to ask. Our purpose in life is more significant than ourselves. It is greater than our happiness and our wildest goals and ambitions. The Bible says, “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” God does not abandon us in the darkness. If we wish to know our purpose in life, we must acknowledge God as our source and starting point. We must answer the following questions: Who are you now? Whose are you? What does it mean to belong to God? What do you believe; and why?
In Life Lessons for Graduates, author/educator Frances Arthur dives deep into these questions and their significance.
