The Smiths hail from Louisiana, where Roger is a medical doctor, and Jan manages their horse farm and businesses. All four of their adult children were homeschooled until their college years. Home education has been an exciting journey for them where they became experts in home and family management, leadership, and community service. They continue to serve in their church as mentors and teachers. They also serve on the board of their state homeschool organization and the National Alliance of Christian Home Education Leadership. In addition, Dr. Smith has a weekly video blog on parenting (@Parenting Matters Now).
