About

Glad you’ve stopped in to my website. I’m Kelly and my blog is all about empowering parents.

I know how hard life in the trenches is for all parents, and I know the unique stresses that homeschool parents encounter. I had four sons in 7 years, and it was more than a little crazy. My husband was a pastor, I was finding my way as a mom, and then we decided to homeschool. Many days I wondered…what was I thinking? Was I qualified? Would my kids have (gasp) gaps in their knowledge? Would they have friends? What about the prom? (Okay, that one never occurred to me…but it occurred to a shocking number of friends and family when they learned of our decision.)

I was looking for help and information anywhere I could find it. Back then (oh, about 30 years ago) there weren’t nearly the resources there are now. Fortunately for me, I had a sister in law who was a credentialed teacher and was also homeschooling her girls. She kept me sane in those early years.

Time passed, I gained confidence, developed a style that worked for my busy family, and then, with a friend,…I started, Grace Prep School. That was over 20 years ago. Fast forward to today, all of my sons are college graduates, married and doing great. Turns out, homeschooling was an awesome option for us. Through Grace Prep I’ve worked with hundreds of homeschool kids from all sorts of backgrounds and found so much joy in entering into this journey with other families.

This is from a few years back, but obviously, they are all grown up now.

Recently, I’ve started moving some of the content I teach to parents in my school, onto this blog. I’d love to have you join this community of parents ….

I post here on the blog 3 times a week. You can join my email newsletter….

Or we can stay in touch over FB or Pinterest.

If you’d like to read more about my family you can head over to my more ‘complete’ bio here.
