Within the pages of The New Pioneers ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-61904-736-5; $25.99, hardcover, 978-1-61904-737-2; $7.99, eBook, 978-1-61904-738-9), written by the students of SonHaven Preparatory Academy as well as Reverend Dr. Thomas and Dr. Carolyn L. Hilt, readers will be inspired to research and gain knowledge of their own ancestral background. These students have written down their family histories ranging from ocean voyages, covered wagons, train rides and any other method used to reach the land known as Florida. Through the process, they were able to discover not only the historical background, but also the spiritual history of their families as well. This book points out that every individual has a hand in pioneering not only the great State of Florida, but also the United States as a whole. It shows the interconnectedness between every individual, both living and non-living.
“This unique book is written and drawn by children as young as the age of seven. Children researched their familial roots and found that the stories that were passed down were history in the making,” expresses Hilt. “They discovered they were part of the foundational fabric of the settlement of the State of Florida. There arose a pride in their pioneering spirit whether stemming from the 17th century or the 21st century. It solidified the bond of family through the generations and opened dialogue with relatives they might not have had otherwise. They learned that their spiritual roots reaped a lasting harvest.”
Reverend Dr. Thomas and Dr. Carolyn Hilt bring over thirty years of Christian educational expertise to The New Pioneers. They have founded three Christian schools in the past thirty years and before that they were overseas missionaries in Okinawa and Guam. SonHaven recently celebrated its tenth year, while the Hilt’s school in Guam is now in its thirtieth year.
