Living, Loving and Learning – Wrapped In God's Grace

About Heather Sanders

About Heather SandersI am a homeschooling journalist, who has spent the last seven years managing and writing for The Pioneer Woman’s Homeschooling Blog.

Married to Jeff, the love of my life, our family is in the midst of living in, and renovating a 960 sq. ft. lake house in Huntsville, a smallish town on the tail-end of the East Texas Piney woods, while homeschooling two of our three kiddos.

If you’ve read me for any length of time you know that I am a born-again Christian, and that I love, worship, and serve the Lord Jesus. As it should be, my faith comes into play in every single area of my life, including the curriculum I choose for our homeschool.

This blog is where I cover the hysterical moments, daily grind, brutal truth, and somewhat personal details of how we live, love and learn in our home. It ain’t all bells and whistles y’all!

While I talk about homeschooling a great deal, I also write about life in general–including my quest for better health and our family’s faithsizing decision; life IS one big learning experience and sanctification process after all.


My Journey to Homeschooling

Everyone’s path to homeschooling is different. Mine began in 2004. While stationed in Augusta, GA, my husband Jeff and I pulled our oldest child out of the public school system to homeschool. The next year, after moving home to Texas, we enrolled both girls in our local elementary school. Two years later, in 2007, we made the decision to withdraw them from public school permanently.

From that point forward, we never looked back.

Homeschooling became part of our family culture, and with each passing year I became more and more passionate about it. I began writing about homeschooling on my own personal blog. Within a couple of months, I was given my very first opportunity to guest post about homeschooling.

By 2008, I began writing weekly homeschooling posts for one of the fastest growing homeschooling blogs on the web, occasionally guest posting on various other sites.

What a Ride!

Homeschooling has been the catalyst for some amazing adventures for me and my family. For instance:

When it’s good, it’s really good. When it’s bad? Well…we won’t talk about that.

This is an exciting time to be a homeschooling blogger. The face of education is changing and I look forward to what the future holds.
