Rick and his wife, Marilyn, are among the early trailblazers of the homeschooling movement. Known for his humorous, folksy style, Rick has been called “the Will Rogers of the homeschooling movement.” They have taught all of their 14 children from kindergarten through high school. Their passion for putting Christian character at the top of their educational priorities resulted in the creation of the Character Concepts curriculum. Rick and Marilyn have written several popular books on homeschooling, Christian parenting, and national reformation. Rick’s books include Home Educating with Confidence, Take Back the Land, The Socialization Trap, and The Hands-on Dad. Marilyn has authored Parenting from the Heart, Hands-on Character Building, and For You They Signed, which inspires children and adults alike with the character of our country’s founders. Marilyn’s combination of compassion, godly wisdom, and rich insight into the hearts of children has made her a cherished resource for homeschooling moms all across America.
