‘I Want to See a Difference’ My Home Education Story When I met singer/songwriter Empress Imani Brown, she was accompanied by her daughter, Nevaeh, aged 6. They had just returned to Leeds from a children’s television programme appearance in Manchester. Some years ago, she took the decision to educate her daughter at home. Here, she relates her experience. ‘I was in a stable relationship with my partner when we had our daughter, Nevaeh. I have always thought that education was important and I wanted to pass on the same ethos to my daughter. Because she is my only child, I felt that it would be a good idea to read with her at home so that I could give her the attention that she probably would not receive in a class of ten, 20 or even 30 other children. ‘Sadly, my relationship with my daughter’s father did not last. Even so, I wanted to continue teaching Nevaeh at home and I hoped that her father would support me. I was surprised when, instead of boosting my effort, he began to discourage me instead. He seemed to think that even though I am a well-read and intelligent woman, I was not capable of teaching a child - my child. I was very disappointed by his attitude. Even so, the importance of being my daughter’s first teacher was not6 COMMUNITY HIGHLIGHTS

But, my family was insistent and I didn’t want to let them down. ‘So, I decided to enrol her at a local nursery school. Of course, I did not give up educating her at home entirely. My sending her there had less to do with wanting to improve the quality of her education, than increasing the social interaction which my family insisted would happen at school. After a while though, I noticed that my daughter was not necessarily progressing more quickly at the nursery school than she had been when I was teaching her at home. After about eighteen months, I decided to withdraw her from school and teach her at home full-time. ‘This time, I threw myself into my home education project with even more fervour.

MY TESTIMONY TRUE LIFE STORIES by Andrea Saunders I n March. I went to the accident and Emergency department with abdominal pain. A scan was performed which revealed I had a strangulated hernia, which was trapped and could not be pushed back in, which needed urgent medical attention. Following admission, I was on the Acute emergency list. I was on the ward for a couple of days before the surgery. I was very anxious and worried, not knowing what the outcome would be. My cousin prayed for me by the hospital bedside. Little did I know that God had a plan for me. He works in mysterious ways. I was in crying in agony on the ward that night with excruciating pain in my abdomen. I did not know what was going on in my stomach but it felt like a war was going on. I beared the pain and went to sleep. God’s plan was revealed to me the next morning. As I opened my eyes there was a beam of light above. Instantly I knew something had happened. I felt different. I lifted my nightie and my stomach was flat where there was once a bulge from the hernia. I knew I had been healed. I went to the bathroom, once again there was no hernia. I went to lay down and the doctor s came to do the ward round. My stomach was examined and the doctor said the hernia had gone back in. I had surgery which would have been more difficult if the hernia was still strangulated, but God is a powerful God who heals. For any one reading this message who is doubtful in God’s healing, be encouraged by this as there is a living God who heals. Trust in him, believe and you will receive. Amen.18 COMMUNITY HIGHLIGHTS
