In 1987 I left my career in investment banking and finally put my Ivy League diploma to work doing something truly important: raising a family. My husband and I have ten children, and I homeschooled them all, pre-K through 12th grade. When I had free time, I wrote books and blogs about family life and developed curriculum and courses to share what I had learned. Seven of my kids have now completed college, two are in college, and one is still at home. Four (soon five!) of my adult kids are married and raising families of their own. They're all great people, if I do say so myself.
Now that I have more free time than I used to, I really enjoy sharing with other parents the principles (and hacks!) I learned in my years of managing a home and loving my husband and children well. I hope there is something here that will lighten your load.
On a panel with a Pulitzer Prize winner, a Nobel Laureate, a US Ambassador, and a 7-time All-Pro NFL wide receiver, I discussed my career as... a homemaker!
When my kids gather, one of their favorite activities is creating a music video together. You can see why I like them so much!
I'd love to stay in touch and let you know if I'm speaking in your area.
