Michelle STEWARTI am a homeschooling mom of three great kids.  One is in highschool (almost), one is in middle school (almost), and one is in elementary (absolutely), and one is in need of Geritol (that’s me!)  With my husband in the military, we tend to be a rather nomadic lot, but currently our tents are pitched in Orlando, Florida.  Homeschooling has given us a continuity, closeness and richness that I am so thankful for.  When I am not homeschooling I am running, or tackling the ever growing mound of “must read” books beside my bed.


Debbie TIPTON“I am a stay at home mother of six children. This year, I have once again decided to home school some of my children, and I am really enjoying it.

I am very active in my church and have been elected to serve another year as Sunday School President. Life is busy at our house, but when we all work together, everything gets done and life is great. I enjoy writing and sharing experiences and concerns with others. I hope and pray that some of my works can be of benefit to each and everyone who stops by.”
