Britany Freedman, 44, of Nampa, died August 27, 2021 in her home.
Britany was born April 10, 1977 in New Castle, Indiana to Norma English. Still a child, her family moved to rural southern Arizona in 1985. Edith Hale, a missionary in the area, led her to a saving faith in Jesus Christ when she was about 10 years old. She loved going to church. She was a fast runner, even beat some of the boys in foot races during their elementary track competitions. While attending high school at Salome, she was a shy, reserved teenager, with a mysterious and beautiful countenance, but as many learned, she kept in the ready, a decidedly sharp rebuff of any unwanted attention.
In her Junior year, she met who was to become her husband, Daniel Freedman. She graduated valedictorian of her class in 1995, and having an interest in becoming a teacher, she attended NAU for a year studying Elementary Education. She and Daniel were married December 7, 1997. In lieu of finishing college, she began her true career of being a mother and homeschool teacher when their first child was born just over a year later.
In 2003 she and her growing family moved to Nampa, Idaho. This is where she found a home schooling community that became such a huge part of her life and to which she contributed greatly. Wearing many hats and performing so many essential roles she was a loving wife to an equally busy and often idealistic husband, a mother of four children whom she instructed at home along with a niece and nephew, a home church hostess, and a supporter of life. In time her sphere of influence grew to becoming a teacher of classes at home school co-ops, and an organizer of so many home school and home church events, while even working as a Pilates Princess (Instructor) for about a year. That shy high school girl was nowhere to be found in this now fiercely honest, confident in faith and conviction, bright and purposeful woman, who had a ready embrace into friendship for so many in her community. Her husband had to take her away on trips to visit beautiful places to get to enjoy the glow and loveliness of her for himself.
She lived her life as the scripture says, “redeeming the time,” and demonstrated to all who knew her what a life filled with God’s grace looks like. She championed the Christian faith and shared it with whoever would hear.
She is survived by her husband, Daniel Freedman and their four children: Noah, Knox, Silas and Sophia. Also, by her mother Norma English, and two sisters, Pamela Lewis and Crystal Lewis.
2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
