"I’ve been part of the homeschool support group since 2016, and I am thankful for such a supportive and encouraging group. I love the events we have for families “outside the classroom,” and events celebrating kids’ achievements. One of my favorites is the end-of-year celebration where children receive certificates for completing the school year and take a picture in a cap and gown. The wealth of knowledge and support from the members is invaluable, and it is a relief to know we can ask questions and receive advice from others who are like-minded. Not only do we support each other in educational endeavors, but also in life. The members of the group prayed for my husband who is facing illness, and offered support in tangible ways. The book sale is also one of my favorite events for both volunteering and shopping. The sale is my first stop in searching for curriculum. I cannot imagine trying to homeschool without our group, and I encourage others to be part of it too." —Joy Long

"I joined the homeschool group around 2002 when I had a preschooler. I was investigating homeschooling, and what I found was an encouraging group of women who showed me how to get started and helped me find my way. Our meetings involved sitting in a huge circle sharing things like what others learned about homeschooling, favorite literature curriculum, etc. There was a different topic each week. I took a huge notebook full of notes. Many of these women became my lifelong friends. I go to the beach every year with five women I met from this group, and now we are all getting close to the empty nester stage! These women were role models to me and helped me see that I could do it. This all took place before Classical Conversations and King’s Academy started. Now there are so many options, and I love how our group helps others connect with people doing all kinds of homeschooling methods. I truly treasure and value the years I have spent with the group. Thank you for letting me be part of it." —Michelle Newbold
