Who’s a Part of the M2H Community?
So, who’s part of the Made 2 Homeschool Community?
I’ve put some of their bios below and all of their pictures in the image below so you can have a look.
Abby is a Charlotte Mason inspired homeschooling mom of 5. With children ranging from infancy to high school, she is passionate about family style learning, nature study, life skills, and theology.
A bit of a non-conformist, she has consistently stuck with what works best for her own family, often times having to start a group or meet up if she can’t find what she’s looking for. She believes that each homeschooling journey is beautiful, unique, and valuable, and keeps an eternal focus in the mundane.
Abby is a contributor and coach at the Made 2 Homeschool Community. She and her husband have homeschooled their four boys from the start. Currently the children are 5,7,7, and 9. She met her husband in 2009 at a Bible College where Abby double majored in Psychology and Christian Studies as well as receiving a minor in History. Her husband currently serves as a Pastor in Minnesota where the family resides.
Abby describes her homeschool method as Family Style Learning. She is quite eclectic in her use of curricula and methodology but often utilizes Unit Studies during their year round schedule. “There are many reasons we homeschool but we especially appreciate the opportunity to grow, learn, and worship as a family.” She believes that home provides a space for children to develop life long habits that will intensify their love not only for education but for a deeper relationship with God. “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” -Psalm 90:12
After 13 years in public education, Ashlea felt led to homeschool her only child, Daniel. With the support of her husband of 17 years, Dan, Ashlea made the choice to leave her job 5 years ago to focus on homeschooling full time. Daniel is now 14 and is in the 8th grade.
Ashlea loves sharing on her YouTube channel how to use unit studies in your home as well as many other topics.
Based on her personal experiences, Ashlea didn’t feel that public education nor private education would provide the best learning experience for her child. After trying both, she made the choice to homeschool Daniel. After experimenting with various curricula, Ashlea determined that unit studies are what works best for Daniel’s style of learning.
Anna is a second generation homeschooler who has been married 22 years to the boy next door. She and her husband have graduated 2 of their 6 children and are in their 15th year of homeschooling. Their children range in age from 19 down to 3.
Anna has an Eclectic, Wonder-Schooling approach in their homeschool. She perfers to pull resources from various publishers to fit the needs of each child, while also giving space in the flow of the day to go down rabbit trails of “wonder” and pivot as the seasons change. There is also a strong emphasis on character concepts and teaching life skills. Answers in Genesis-God’s Design Science, Spelling You See and Right Start Math are some of their top curriculum picks. Carrying out Deuteronomy 6:4-7 in a tangible way is the why behind their homeschool.
Morgan is a contributor and coach at the Made 2 Homeschool Community. She and her husband Brandon, have been married for 14 years having met in college 20 years ago. Morgan has 2 bachelors degrees, one in biology and the other in nursing. She has been homeschooling their 3 daughters, ages 11, 9, & 6, for 5 years following a 10+ years career in nursing. She also homeschooled her nephew through 7th and 8th grade. Morgan has always had a passion for teaching however never imagined she’d be doing it through homeschooling.
While searching for the “perfect” school, Morgan quickly realized God had called her to serve her family and others through homeschooling. She asked herself, “other than God, who better to educate their children than the one who loves them the most?” Led by God, Morgan is able to teach directly towards her children’s needs in the comfort of their “home” while fostering a love for learning through multiple methods. Morgan has an eclectic, family centered, Charlotte Mason inspired style of homeschooling and loves gathering resources from diverse publishers to meet their individual needs.
Jessica is raising three girls, ages 6, 9, and 15, in Texas. Her family started homeschooling in 2020 after the global pandemic, and they quickly fell in love with the homeschooling lifestyle. Now Jessica can’t imagine doing anything else and is a bona fide homeschool convert! She has a heart for encouraging and connecting with other homeschool mamas or those who may be interested in becoming converts themselves.
Jessica loves the freedom of homeschooling, the close bonds her family is able to create through homeschooling, and having an active hand in her children’s education and daily discipleship. While they’re not necessarily “purists” of one style or method of home education, Jessica’s family enjoys a Charlotte Mason flair in their homeschool, with lots of rich literature, time appreciating nature, and a beautiful and delightful feast of subjects. Most importantly, the heart of their homeschool is honoring God in all things and doing all things for His glory.
Ashley is a contributor and coach at the Made 2 Homeschool Community. She is a homeschool mom to 3 kids, currently elementary and middle school age. She is a former English teacher, but knew quickly she would rather homeschool and has been homeschooling since 2013. She loves encouraging homeschool families on her YouTube channel and sharing research and practical tips and favorite curriculum and Biblical resources.
Ashley is passionate about God’s Word and knowing Jesus through the Bible, so she knew her kids would not get that kind of education in a public setting. She loves to train her kids in memorizing scripture. She was also captivated by the Charlotte Mason Method when she first started homeschooling and bases her style off of that. She is not very rigid and loves adapting to her kids’ styles and needs and appreciates “flexibility within a framework” —since she is an “easily distracted homeschool mom” and needs at least a little bit of structure.
And Finally, Yours Truly Rebecca @HowtoHomeschool
Rebecca is a contributor and coach at the Made 2 Homeschool Community. She is a Christian mom of two children aged 3 and 6. Her parents homeschooled her and now she’s homeschooling her two kids. Rebecca is an author of a book and a vlogger and blogger at howdoihomeschool.com. She’s passionate about homeschooling because it can be a great tool in parents’ hands with which they can spread the gospel effectively.
Rebecca homeschools primarily to give her children a gospel-centred education, and secondarily to give her kids an academically superior education to equip them to do great deeds to the glory of God through His power. She uses an eclectic approach primarily focusing on Charlotte Mason and classical education.
