Lauren Boudreaux welcomes you to our chapter web site!
Brian, Bennett, Lauren and Lyla
Lauren’s homeschool journey began when Lyla was just 2 years old. Brian and Lauren had a desire for abundance and flexibility in their children’s education. No matter what struggles or gifts their kids may have, they knew they wanted to be able to customize things to fit their needs. When Bennett was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in August of 2018, it further solidified their calling to the homeschool life. As the last few years have passed, she has seen the blessings from every angle of being side by side, witnessing her kids grow and learn.
A few years ago the family joined a local group called Classical Conversations, and they absolutely loved it! A classical, Christian, homeschool education, in a group setting was amazing! It felt like home, like a family. In an unexplainable way, God made it abundantly clear that she needed to leave what was comfortable and bring a community based homeschool option to local Catholic families. A good friend told her, “The things God asks us to give up are not always bad.” That was exactly true. Houma Catholic Schoolhouse was born out of a deep desire to do God’s will, to bring the love and community she had experienced to others, and to have the beauty of the Catholic faith woven into her kids’ academics.
Lauren and Brian were married in March of 2013, after dating for 3 years. Lauren a graduate of H.L. Bourgeois High School and University of Louisiana at Monroe. Brian a professional firefighter and graduate of Terrebonne High School and LSU Eunice. They are parishioners at St. Bernadette Catholic Church in Houma.
