Meet the Team

 

Ami still wonders how Homeschool Share happened. The best formula she can find is: a regular girl with a little idea + God’s grace + helping hands = a website serving thousands of homeschoolers around the world. God’s grace runs wild through her life, and she asks daily for {more} grace as she walks by the way with her two boys, Elijah and Simon.  She hasn’t figured out her homeschooling style, but she makes sure her kids read oodles of living books, get-out-and-get-the-stink-off with frequent field trips, and have plenty of time to explore their interests–keeping them exceptionally curious. She chronicles her homeschooling adventures {and disasters} at Walking by the Way. 

 

Candace is wife to David and momma to Hannah, Emily, and Caleb. They are a very eclectic homeschooling family living in east Tennessee, using a little bit of a lot of styles. She loves Jesus, her family, her church, reading, worship music, scrapbooking and homeschooling. Candace really wants you to know that she doesn’t have it all together, is such a mess, and is so thankful that His mercies are new every morning. You can read more about Candace and her family at His Mercy is New.

 

Celia is an eclectic homeschooler in the Appalachian foothills of Ohio. She is called mom by two daughters, one in junior high and another in high school.  Once against homeschooling, Celia now realizes what a good laugh God must have had knowing that He’d soon be calling her to homeschool! (While she was still pregnant with her first!) Her girls are into horses with their local 4-H group and are actively involved in their church’s puppet ministry and youth group. Celia enjoys reading, writing for HSS, and being involved in her church’s library and fellowship ministries. Celia occasionally blogs at Dust Bunnies and Books.

 

Jen is a former fifth grade teacher and library school dropout who homeschools her two children, Jack and Alice.  Along with her husband, Jay, Jen lives in Oklahoma.  When she does get a bit of spare time (and it only comes in bits), she likes to read, watch old TV shows, or play outside with the kids.  She blogs about homeschooling, housework, and other random topics at Little Things.

 

When Jodi married her high school sweetheart, Ryan, she never dreamed she’d be homeschooling her two children, Alex and Nicolas. Ryan and Jodi went to public school and turned out fine — besides, aren’t all homeschooled children weird?  But when her boys’ grandmother, also their babysitter, was diagnosed with cancer, Jodi quit her  job to stay home with them and the Lord put it in their hearts to homeschool.   Jodi and her family are very active in their church, Scouts and their local homeschool co-op.   She also enjoys reading, gardening, and camping.  Read more from Jodi, where every day is a new adventure at My2SMALLboys.

 

Kyla is our blog designer and tech support for the team.  When she is not designing blogs she likes to design digital scrapbooking kits and post tips and freebies on her design site, Kyla Kreates. She is also a somewhat new homeschooler and mother of three. She occasionally posts about their days at Homeschooling by the Yard.

Marcy spent nearly 15 years as an Ob nurse, sometimes juggling homeschooling with the job she calls her first ministry. Grateful that her main ministry today is at home, she has been married to Tom for 16 years, and is the proud momma to Ben. Her homeschool style is delight-directed (just a hair shy of unschooling), using mostly unit studies, and greatly influenced by Charlotte Mason’s love of  living books. If she ever writes a book herself, it’s likely to be entitled, Homeschooling by the Field Trip Method. Although Marcy resides in Kentucky, she loves to travel wherever and whenever given the opportunity (more research for that book!).  You can find Marcy blogging at Ben & Me.

 

Wende, a Bible-believing, homeschooling, homesteading mama of two wonderful girls, has been married to her childhood sweetheart since 1990. They live on ten acres where they raise chickens and goats, and grow a large organic garden, fruit trees and assorted berries. They are big advocates of “learning through living” and the homesteading life opens up all kinds of learning opportunities. Her teaching methods are very eclectic, including Charlotte Mason mixed with unit studies, which she loves to write for Homeschool Share.
