Start With the End in Mind - Karen DeBeus and Aby Rinella

Join Yvette Hampton, Aby Rinella, and Karen DeBeus as they discuss the importance of establishing a strong foundation with our homeschool students, so that they are prepared to graduate and go out into the world. The ladies discuss the struggle Karen felt letting go of her oldest child, as she went off to college, then they talk about Karen's Bible Based Homeschooling E-Course, Homeschool Consulting and Mentorship Program, and her book, Called Home: Finding Joy in Letting God Lead Your Homeschool, which are all great tools to help build that solid foundation.

interview with Karen DeBeus - Finding a Homeschool Mentor 

Karen DeBeus is a homeschooling mom learning to live more simply and keep God at the center of it all. She is the author of three best-selling homeschooling books and writes at Simply Living for Him. She speaks nationally at homeschooling conventions and recently was a speaker at the Family Bible Conference in Washington, DC. Her passion is to help others clear the clutter from their lives, seek God first, and to encourage women and families to get in the Word every day.
In 2016, she founded the Simply Living for Him Retreat, which is a time of rest and renewal for all women seeking Jesus. She enjoys life on her hobby farm with her husband and four children. Together they are a work-at-home family pursuing a simple life with purpose and, above all, seeking to glorify God in all they do.
