About

Kerry, wife & mom throughout the week, manages our home, our school and the inventory/marketing of our store. Having a Masters in Curriculum & Instruction, she has a unique perspective on homeschooling. She has learned more about real education in the past several years of homeschooling than in all her years as a public school teacher.

Since we have a curriculum store, Kerry has the opportunity to review many books and approaches to homeschooling. Our kids are the testing station of what we carry in our store.

Kerry has written some books and looks forward to writing more once her kids are grown. Some of her publications include the following:

Raising Leaders, Not Followers
Teach Your Children “How to Think” with Mentoring
Hop Off the Conveyor Belt
Secrets to Online Auction Success
Starting a Family eBay Business

Kerry enjoys meeting with young moms to encourage them in raising, educating and encouraging their own kids. She also has a strong desire to show families ways to give children a love of learning.

    I write fun science books for kids–Would you be interested in reviewing some of them–I have 50+ publications. Since your reviewers are your children–send me their ages and I’ll send books for them.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
    PS I also have a Bible book.
    PS2 I notice that Science is not one of your categories–I have books that homeschooling familes love!!!

    PS3 Interested in fun science seasonal ideas—
    Check out my website for examples of my fun science.

    Hello from Christchurch, New Zealand! After reading Raising Leaders not Followers I put into practise “Grace Week” with 30 minutes of Maths each day. (Since I have boys we call it “Project Week”). I was overwhelmed with the success of this. The Love of Learning Phase kicked in in a big way. My boys LOVE IT and can’t wait for it each month. This is my first step alongside reading some classics for myself. Getting off the conveyor belt is a rather scary since I realise how poor my own education was but I am convinced this is the right thing to do and with God’s help I will take each step with Him.
    Thank you, Kerry, for your practical and easy to understand ideas.
    God Bless
    Kay

    Feel free to share this challenge on twitter. That’s where I got the idea a few months ago. I’ve been waiting to post this challenge after seeing the 31 days of Cleaning Challenge at the end of the summer

    I need help Kerry. I’ve joined in on some of your workshops before and I need to know how you do it. I need to be able to set up an online workshop for some teen girls we have in our homeschool group. We want to study the book “Raising Maidens of Virtue” together. However, with the rise in gas prices, and just life as it busy self is, I’m affraid all of the girls will not be able to make all of the meetings. I’m thinking that if I could publish the study time online as a closed workshop that only certain members could listen to and correspond in, this would be a great way to have the girls connect that may not really be able to attend. Can you help me figure out how to set this up? This would be so much help and a great blessing for our group! Any advice and pointing in the right direction will be greatly appreciated!

    Blessings for your service In HIM,

    DeAnna,
    Sorry I didn’t see this until today. I’ve been blogging over at my new site http://www.HowToHomeschoolMyChild.com/blog

    You can use gotomeeting for a small meeting like that. There is also a free webinar service that might work for you. I’m not sure the name of it, so you might google for it.
    Then, I would send any notes via email.

    Hope that helps.
    kerry
