About Me:


After college, I became an interior designer, specializing in kitchen design for custom homes. As an artist, I also completed murals for our church and other venues. After five years of marriage, our first child was born, immediately requiring special care and a heart surgery to survive. I loved pouring time into her care and well-being. When it came time for her to attend school, however, we planned on her attending a Christian school as we had discussed years before. Oh, how my heart ached every day I dropped her off at school! I managed to teach art at the Christian school, still, I yearned to be a larger part of my child’s education. I felt a deep desire to homeschool, yet I didn’t know how or if I could do it. Therefore, I didn’t mention homeschooling to my husband. God must have been speaking to his heart though, because suddenly, my husband asked me if I would like to homeschool. I couldn’t believe my ears! My heart skipped a beat as I answered with a resounding, “Yes!”

That was just the beginning. Thirteen years later, I am still homeschooling. I now have five children and love spending time learning with them. Since I am with my children every day, I am thankful for the opportunities to cultivate their hearts of service and nurture their faith. I am grateful that homeschooling has allowed me to play such a huge part in preparing my children’s hearts and minds for whatever God calls them to do. 

"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." (Hebrews 11:1, NIV). 

My oldest child has written her first book and is working toward becoming a certified editor. My second oldest child is inspired by my husband’s heart for serving our community and our country. As a junior in high school, she fills her free time as Cadet Commander at a local Civil Air Patrol Squadron while also working toward obtaining her private pilot’s license. Her goal is to become a fighter pilot. I am looking forward to many more years of homeschooling my 6th, 4th, and 1st grade children.

 



Welcome!

Homeschooling is a privilege and a blessing!  
Homeschooling also challenges us, helping us grow along the way! 

Do you have infants or toddlers in your home?
Do you work outside your home or run a home-based business? 
Are you homeschooling high school students? 
Do you teach multiple children with multiple learning styles?  
Do you teach a child who experiences a specific learning difficulty? 
Do you face health issues or care for others in need of assistance? 

 

Hebrews 11:8 reminds us of Abraham going by obedience, not knowing what he would face as he journeyed ahead. I have had the privilege of being refined through many challenges while homeschooling my five children over the past thirteen years; I have been teaching multiple children, a special needs child, and high school students while dealing with chronic illness, providing care for a parent, and working. It truly is an honor to be refined to the point where I can pull from my experiences and share what I have learned to encourage, nurture, and guide the success of others.
 
Along with a heartfelt passion to integrate a biblical worldview throughout my children’s education, I guide and encourage homeschool parents by consulting with homeschool families and speaking at homeschool conventions and for homeschool groups nationwide. My work has been published in CHEC Update Magazine and the book Just Like You: A Collection of Homeschool Journeys from HomeWorks by Precept. My blog posts at HomeschoolHelp.com, the Christian Home Educators of Colorado (CHEC) blog, MyHomeschoolHub.com. and InspirationalHomeschooling.com encourage and guide others. I am also the author of Inspirational Homeschooling (Amazon/Walmart/Barnes and Noble).




What a joy and privilege it is to walk alongside each of you during this exciting journey of discipling and educating your children at home! As a HomeWorks by Precept consultant, it fills my heart to be able to help you with your homeschool questions, help you develop practical solutions, lend a shoulder, and join beside you in prayer. Let’s walk this journey . . . together!

BJU Press Homeschool: A valuable tool for discipling your children!

   

With this well-rounded curriculum, your child will develop their own personal relationship with God, their knowledge of God, and understanding of His world while also preparing for college or other future endeavors. Your children will grow to understand the importance of pairing their knowledge and understanding with compassion and their God given gifts to serve and show love for others.  
 
BJU Press Homeschool curriculum is created for all learning styles and I love that I can tailor the curriculum to each of my children’s needs and the way they learn best. I have even been able to adapt it for my special needs child. 

Utilizing a combination of the BJU Press Homeschool Video Courses and parent-led learning affords me time with each of my children. I can address any needs that arise while still maintaining confidence that my children are getting a well-rounded, solid, biblically based education that will prepare them for whatever God calls them to. 

Since this curriculum has been such a blessing to our family, I am thankful I can help you save, maximize your benefits, and enjoy BJU Press Homeschool curriculum in your family!
