She was home educated herself in the 1980’s and the 1990’s and is now homeschooling her own seven children, seeking to pass on the legacy of faith her parents imparted to her. She has an almost forty-year perspective on the homeschooling movement and encourages parents to reach the hearts of their children with the gospel of Jesus Christ. She offers warnings against falling into ditches and exhorts parents to take a Biblically balanced approach in raising their children for the glory of God.

Andre is a major advocate of Parenting ministry in Russia and the initiator of the Christian homeschooling movement in his hometown of Vyborg. He and his wife, Nadya, have been married for 21 years. They have three daughters – Emily (18), Erika (17) and Elsie (16), who they have been raising according biblical principles and homeschooled for the past 6 years.

She writes and speaks on homeschool, motherhood, parental rights, the culture war and more and has a passion for encouraging and inspiring women to live the life they were designed to live.

You can find all of Aby’s published work at abyrinella.com

"Why do I homeschool? Because today my children will be at home with me, learning about the catastrophic events that happened in New York. About the evil that happens when we deviate from God's design. And about how we have a God that mourns because he loves his people. They will be home with me, praying for the preborn babies, rather than in a public school system that tells them they get to choose for themselves what is good and evil, rather than looking to God for truth." - Aby Rinella
