Tell us a little about yourself. My husband and I just celebrated our 20th anniversary. We have eight children whom I have been homeschooling for 13 years. I have authored 7 books. Our publishing business, Schoolhouse Publishing, is currently serving not only as a service to other homeschool families, but also as a homeschool project for our children. My husband and I serve two homeschool support groups.
What was your motivation behind this project? With 8 children (6 currently of homeschool age), I had plenty of opportunity to struggle through various learning styles, preferences, challenges, and difficulties. Everything I have developed has been developed around my children. Two of my older boys struggled with spelling. I didn't want to embarrass them by having them go back through elementary phonics - so I developed my own spelling drills. Since we also believe that every subject should be pertinent to their Christian walk and their life purpose, I made sure the lessons I developed would continue to tie their work to Scripture and character development.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? My prayer is that older students with spelling struggles will find some relief by using "Apples." I realize that if you struggle with spelling, you will probably always struggle with spelling, but "Apples" will give the struggling student some tools to help compensate and overcome that struggle.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I must give credit to God, my Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ - I am what I am only because of Him. He has helped me to apply educational creativity to each of my children as needed. God is so good. My biggest source of earthly inspiration is my husband. He has believed in me, encouraged me, and even invested in me. I don't deserve such a wonderful man as both my husband and friend.
