Crew Leadership


Debra is sometimes shocked to see how far her life has strayed from her initial career as a CPA. She has been married to Dale for 19 years, and they are the parents of four boys young men and one little girl. They’ve been homeschoolers all along and prefer a literature-based approach utilizing as many read-alouds and audiobooks as possible. Being a family of geeks, they also tend towards loads of science. Although they currently live on the Eastern plains of Colorado, they do try to make it “home” to North Dakota and Minnesota a couple times a year. You can find Debra blogging at Footprints in the Butter.


Marcy spent nearly 15 years as an Ob nurse, sometimes juggling homeschooling with the job she calls her first ministry. Grateful that her main ministry today is at home, she has been married to Tom for 14 years, and is the proud momma to Ben. Her homeschool style is delight-directed (just a hair shy of unschooling), using mostly unit studies, and greatly influenced by Charlotte Mason’s love of living books. If she ever writes a book herself, it’s likely to be entitled, Homeschooling by the Field Trip Method. Although Marcy resides in Kentucky, she loves to travel wherever and whenever given the opportunity (more research for that book!). You can find Marcy blogging at Ben and Me.
