Sharon D.

Mom of 2 homeschool grads

If it hadn’t been for Vicki, I may never have homeschooled at all. My husband met her at a very small (early 90’s) homeschool convention... Fortunately for me, Vicki lived near me and was the driving force for our homeschooling community. Her godly wisdom and leadership, along with her kindness, compassion, support, laughter, and friendship encouraged a generation of homeschooling families. She has a BIG heart and years of experience.                               ~ Sharon D., mom of two homeschool grads

"Dynamic, practical, and challenging—Vicki shares from a wealth of homeschool experience. She’ll provide a road map to help you plan your trip, navigate those bumps in the road, and reach your homeschool destination."
