Speaker & Workshop Teacher
My passion is teaching! I’ve known since first grade that I would be a teacher – and I’m so very thankful to the Lord for revealing His perfect will for me early on. With a Master’s Degree in elementary education, I found myself teaching in a public school for five short years before coming home to be mom and teacher to my then one-year-old daughter. How blessed I am fifteen years later to say that I am mom and teacher to three wonderful children! I wouldn’t trade our days together for any amount of money!
God continues to burn in my heart a desire to teach others as well as my own children. Encouraging women in their walk with the Lord and/or homeschooling is truly one of my favorite things to do. I absolutely love sharing from my heart and experience with others!
My Professional Bio
I own Shining Dawn Books where I have written and published the popular NaturExplorers series, which are creation-based nature studies. I’ve also written a grammar curriculum for third and fourth graders based on living literature, a how-to book for living math, and have several other writing projects in the works for Shining Dawn Books. Additionally, I have recently published my first book with Prufrock Press, Homeschooling Gifted and Advanced Learners.
About My Workshops
I’ve taught and written about a wealth of topics including nature study, homeschooling creatively, Charlotte Mason style learning, organization, living math, fine arts, unit studies, creative Bible study with children, and raising children who love the Lord. I’m happy to develop a workshop according to your needs with a few weeks’ notice.

“Your Creative Homeschooling Workshop was one of the best attended at the CHEK convention!”
“Thank you for inspiring me to try something new. Our homeschool has been so bland lately and I know my children will be excited that I have new ideas.”
“Thank you for giving me real-life examples of what to do with my children. I’ve wanted to create a homeschool that relies less on workbooks, but I never could figure out exactly what to do until now.”
“You’ve inspired me to get outside in God’s creation. I never realized how much learning could take place outside the classroom walls. My children will be so excited!”
“Thank you for re-igniting my passion for teaching.”
“Thank you for reminding me that school is secondary to raising my children to love the Lord.”
