“I literally want to hear everything you have to say about homeschooling so I can learn how to make this work.” -Heather

Homeschool Awakening is dedicated to demystifying homeschool culture, debunking the myths constantly repeated to justify government schools, teaching parents they can start homeschooling now, and encouraging families that it’s not that hard to begin.  The core of our mission is to kindle a flame in the hearts of parents to choose homeschooling and re-ignite the passion of parents who are currently homeschooling. We equip families with the best homeschooling resources to be successful, including written guides, in-depth courses, individual consultations, and public speaking engagements. We want to help parents discover the richness and freedom in homeschooling.

Christy-Faith’s Story…

Christy’s experience includes a 20-year career in K-College academics and administration where she’s worked and taught at literally every level of education in a professional capacity- with diverse student populations ranging from gifted to those with learning differences.

After starting her career as a classroom teacher, Christy found great success as a private tutor, which then evolved into her becoming an educational consultant for kids of the “rich and famous” in Los Angeles. There she worked alongside her husband at their private learning center. She came to realize the system is broken and failing its students, even those from families who can “afford it all.” When she had her own children, she knew what she had to do: homeschool. She spends her days educating her four “endlessly entertaining” kids in Colorado with Scott, her husband of 20+ years. Christy takes great pleasure in listening to fiction on Audible, cooking with her kids, and pondering all things education. You can find her on her two favorite playgrounds, Tik Tok and HomeschoolAwakening.com.

Mike’s Story…

When I started homeschooling, I was attracted to the benefits for my family and children.  However, over the years, as I learned more and saw the destruction caused by institutional schools, my initial attraction turned into a passion.  I began to realize that most people are being duped into trusting government bureaucrats to raise their children.  Parents are completely missing out on the rich, strong relationships they could have with their children by teaching them at home.  Because of that, I’ve become an unapologetic champion of homeschooling.  I’ve spoken to various groups about the benefits of homeschooling.

My beautiful wife and I have been on this journey for over 15 years.  We have 5 children, ranging from 7 to 17 and we are on the verge of graduating our first two from high school.  Both have been accepted into private colleges and awarded scholarships. (Thank goodness!)  We make our home in Colorado where we camp, hike and enjoy being outdoors.
