Region 4 Representatives
Our homeschooling journey had a unique beginning. When discussing our future family, my husband informed me that if we were to have children, they would have to be homeschooled. I wasn’t completely on board with that decision at first, then the Lord started placing people in my life that homeschooled. I was able to see the special bond these families had and it didn’t take long before I was completely sold. I am now a very passionate home educator!
We have 3 children, began homeschooling in 2011, and live in the Port Huron area where I am the Leader of the Christian Home Educators of the Blue Water Area. We look forward to helping families begin their homeschooling experience and be an encouragement and support to those already taking the journey. Protecting and defending our freedom to homeschool is very important to us; both for our children and for future generations.
