My parents and siblings....but especially my mom. She birthed and raised 16 of us along with my book loving, hardworking, farming, mechanic dad. She was a free spirited Christian who loved everyone as Christ loves. She and my dad were homeschooling pioneers in our area and were an inspiration and support to many other families. She made learning fun and read to us often. She loved to travel and did her international traveling through books and the atlas because it wasn't possible otherwise. Gardening and canning were a family affair. We canned green beans by the quart and peaches and pears by the half gallon. One of her hobbies was to draw house plans. She was also a gifted singer. She collected hymn books and was always learning a new hymn to share with us or finding more verses to a favorite hymn. My mom instilled a love for reading, music, travel, geography, history and all learning in me that I am thankful to be able to pass on to my children today.
Not one single person. It was only AFTER I graduated, when my sister became interested in home-education and I became aware and very excited that there was an alternative to what I had. My first dabble in home-education was Dr. Raymond and Dorothy Moore, and I was inspired to educate myself while reading their books. Rick and Marilyn Boyer were a huge influence, as well as Christopher Klicka's book, Homeschooling: The Right Choice. Little Bear Wheeler inspired me to like History, as well as Peter Marshall and David Manuel with their book From Sea to Shining Sea. The only person who has EVER inspired me to like math is Steve Demme with MathUSee, but that was about 5 years into home-schooling when I discovered his curriculum.
Probably my mom.
