Homeschool parents often have big dreams for their children and for themselves as parents. Sometimes those dreams work against them because they can’t possibly live up to their own expectations. If you’ve ever felt inadequate to educate your own children, overwhelmed, fearful of making mistakes, failing your kids, or just plain exhausted, you won’t want to miss this live session with Sonlighters Judy, Lisa, Amber, and Sunny. They will provide encouragement that yes, you are capable of giving your kids the best education possible. Discussions will include tips for managing the overwhelm, burn out, getting back into the swing of school after the holidays, and more. Because this session is live, you can get answers to your specific questions too!

Marketing Sales Manager
Judy is a retired homeschool teacher of three amazing students. She has spent 20+ years using literature-based learning with her own children and sharing it with families across the US and Canada through her work with Sonlight. She has a passion for encouraging parents, young and old, as they navigate the journey of raising their children. She and her husband of 36 years have enjoyed the privilege of facilitating marriage and parenting classes, and she likes nothing better than to mentor moms that God brings across her path.

Community Manager
Sunny has loved books as long as she can remember. Her own parents discovered Sonlight at a convention and knew the literature and history focus would be perfect for her. She never planned to homeschool her own children past pre-k, but when her daughter learned to read, she was hooked. She has educated both of her children entirely with Sonlight. In her spare time, Sunny enjoys reading (of course), musicals, hiking, and being in or near water.

When she is not homeschooling she enjoys running, going to the beach, reading and sewing.

She has been homeschooling since 2002 when her oldest child began pre-k with Sonlight. Amber has five children – one attending graduate school, two in college, one in high school, and one in 6th grade.
