Called to Learn
When was the last time you were motivated to change because of a spiritual experience?
We seek to restore and preserve a gospel culture of learning patterned after the temple of our Lord. This righteous culture helps us all become dedicated seekers of His truth, *keepers of His temple, and teachers of His peace.
* "keep" in the Hebrew means to protect.

For over 20 years, we have been heavily invested in Christ-centered education for our own children. Since 2012, we have directed several Homeschool Conferences and have been inspiring other parents to educate their own children and friends. Together, we have produced over 100 online courses, events, articles, and resources for families. Today, we seek to inspire one thousand parents, students, and educators to come closer to Christ through education and the Faith Transformation Process found in the pattern of the Biblical Tabernacle.

Our Role in God's Story
When it came to my child's education, I thought I had it under control. My oldest two sons were struggling in school. I thought they were in good schools, but something was missing. You see, we homeschooled them all of their lives, but when my seventh child was born, he had some devastating health issues that forced us to put them into school. At first, I noticed they seemed to like it and had decent grades, but I quickly noticed that my young boys were struggling spiritually.
My husband, Thom, and I thought, as most parents do, that putting our children in a quality school would be a better option. As it turns out, it was not. This school did not teach what they advertised or promised to teach them (self-reliance, entrepreneurship, patriotism, etc.) My young teenagers were unmotivated, frustrated, unfulfilled, and confused about America, evolution, and spirituality.
After returning from the hospital I discovered that I would have to reteach and re-motivate them back into a love for their God, their country, and true, invigorating, God-centered education again. My children were being taught academics without the morals and values to support it and not to my standards. Other parents expressed the same concern. Thus, Keystone Education (now CalledtoLearn.com) was born.
Called to Learn was one of the first Restored Gospel-centered homeschool online resources to help put the gospel back into academic learning and not use curriculums "sprinkled with scripture" and false doctrine. Today, we seek to help not just homeschoolers but all families who want to restore the responsibility of teaching true gospel-centered education back to the families.
Called to Learn Academy
Through Called to Learn Academy we promote Gospel and thus Principle Centered Education and point everything to the partnership we have with God. We teach, discuss, and encourage participation in making Covenants with God and partaking in the ordinances His prophets have revealed to us from the time of Adam to this Fullness of Times.
We believe in education that is patterned after the manner which God has set out in the scriptures.
Tresta’s course on the OT Tabernacle was amazing! I learned many new concepts about the law of Moses that helped me understand how Jesus fulfilled it. As a Gospel Doctrine teacher I was able to share these ideas with my class which my students greatly enjoyed. One of the best investments of my time and money.
The Path of the Stone Tables [Course] was wonderful! I was very interested in the course for myself, but I wanted my children to learn from it as well. Because of scheduling, we watched the recordings, but that made it really convenient for my family. 2-3 times a week I would pull out some hand work, (coloring, stringing Cheerios on yarn, building with toothpicks and squares of cheese etc) and then turn on the classes for 30 min-1 hr. I had several children not interested to start the class, but by the end they were all glad. One of my daughters said "I loved this! Lets start over and watch it all again!" I'm sure we will, because there was so much valuable information to digest. I love learning from Tresta! She has an immense base of knowledge and a vision and purpose that makes my heart sing.
Tresta truly celebrates the smallest triumphs and teaches you how to accept and rejoice in the blessings you receive. I recommend Tresta to anyone. She understands LDS doctrine, she does not over-proclaim or step beyond boundaries, she points you toward the scriptures, church leaders, apostles, prophets. She simply teaches how to seek and how recognize when you have received. I owe a great deal of thanks to her!
