It all started when two people who shared a vision fell in love, Founder Howard Mandel and Cofounder Mimi. A quiver full learning at home under Christ’s Lordship with huge ideas and even more faith. Never to be a straight path, replete with tragedies and triumphs, always filled with amazing adventures, we learned through it all God’s Provision is Always Enough.
We have been blessed to be living our dream of serving the homeschooling community with programs that are worthy of them and God.
