During my time as household manager, homeschool teacher, and mom, I was very active in volunteer work, including organizing and administrating homeschool support groups, drama teams, music teams, puppet teams, and nursing home outreaches. I created a 501c3 and served as President for five years. I did hospice visitation, sewed maternity clothing for single moms at a local pregnancy center, and served on the board of a state homeschool support group.
I wrote cookbooks, drama skits and newsletters, as well as self-published yearbooks for homeschoolers. At church, I taught preschool classes, wrote newsletters, created a blog Web site for a church, organized a church resource library, wrote and self-published worker manuals, and created a resource library database.
I taught workshops and seminars on homeschooling, as well as on self-publishing and on how to use social media for marketing.
