I'm a homeschooling mom to four blessings and have been married to my beloved Mark for over twenty years. I've been using IEW's Structure and Style method to instruct my own children since my oldest was in third grade. IEW is definately the way I wish I had been taught! I hold a BA in Psychology with a minor in English from Western Washington University and a Master's degree in Pastoral Studies (emphasis Women's Ministries) from Multnomah Biblical Seminary. Because we are made in the image of God, the good Lord gave us the amazing gift of language. Words have power! It's a priviledge and a responisbility to learn to use them well in all forms.
