We love our Sonlight students! And after almost thirty years in business, we are pleased to feature stories of Sonlighters who are making a difference in the world. From business to academia, from churches to the mission field, from neighborhoods to home, we are grateful to have been a part of these amazing students' lives. (Some are even raising second generation Sonlighters! How awesome is that?!)
You may have seen some of these Sonlighters in the pages of a Sonlight catalog over the years and perhaps you wonder what they are up to now. Here's the scoop! May you be encouraged as you pursue a "few regrets" lifestyle of bonding with your kids each day and teaching them what's most important to you.
We love catching up with long-time Sonlight users who are now thriving young adults. Use #sonlightstories on social media to share your thoughts and photos. Or email your images and testimonials to firstname.lastname@example.org.
