She is also a mother of three, a homeschooler, writer, daycare educator and possibly the most easily distracted person on the planet. She drinks vats of coffee, hikes every day with her kids and dogs, and is the luckiest person she knows in real life. That being said, if an aging millionaire would like to leave her a vast unexpected inheritance, she’d be happy to accept.

 photo Button_zpsaf6e9d9a.jpgSarah is the JOYful wife of Jorge, the JOYful mother of 7 blessings, and a JOYful servant to the Most High God. She has been JOYfully homeschooling since 2007, using an eclectic approach. Sarah left her working-mom-of-2 mentality and plans at the door when the Lord came knocking on it in 2002. Now, as a born-again, stay-at-home, homeschooling mom of many, she couldn’t imagine life any other way! Sarah has a heart for moms, and uses her blog, My Joy-Filled Life, to minister to and encourage other mothers. You will find her writing and sharing about the joys of big family living, her faith, homeschooling, homemaking, and whatever the Lord lays on her heart. In her free time (what’s that?), Sarah enjoys baking (but not the clean-up), dabbling in photography, and running. You can also find her on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

 photo BlogButton_zps1d02a9f2.jpgSelena is a former tax accountant-turned-homeschooling mom of four. She and her husband Jay have committed themselves to homeschooling their children in an effort to give them the very best education possible and to strengthen their bond as a family. Selena is a homeschooling graduate herself who was able to go on to college and begin a career in finance, so she knows from experience that homeschooling works! Rather than committing themselves to a single teaching style, the family practices eclectic homeschooling and both Selena and Jay weave in aspects from all of the major homeschooling methods to create a well-rounded, relaxed learning style for their children. Selena shares her family’s homeschooling adventures every weekday at Look! We’re Learning! Readers can keep up with the family by subscribing via email or by following Look!

 photo BoB_branding_150px_zpsfdaf34ab.jpgAmy is a wife to a military man, and a homeschooling mom with six beautiful children ages 14, 12, 9, 7, 4 and 4. They currently live in southern California, where the family enjoys playing on the beach and at Legoland, CA. Amy loves to write, sing, hike and read great books. She also loves to teach— which turns out to be a very good thing! Amy grew up in Southern Indiana, the daughter of a preacher and a teacher. She has four siblings and they lived on 2.5 acres next to a woods, where they helped with their Daddy’s garden and roamed to their hearts content. She attended Kentucky Christian College where she met her husband. God eventually blessed them with children, but for five long years they weren’t able to have children and during that time Amy started hearing about homeschooling through the Focus on the Family radio program. She would listen during lunch hour at work and come home to tell her husband all about it. It wasn’t until their first child was two years old that Daniel heard Focus on the Family during his drive home from work and decided they should homeschool their precious daughter. You can find Amy blogging at Bow of Bronze and connect with her through Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
