Ana has a passion to come alongside homeschool moms to encourage, inspire, and empower them to go from stressed to blessed. Her enthusiasm for home education and motherhood is contagious and she provides moms with the tips, strategies, and resources they need to succeed. She is the founder of They Call Me Blessed, a vibrant blog and online community for Christian homeschool moms.
Ana and Ryan have been married for 13 years and together they have traveled the world and lived in three countries serving in missions. They've been happily homeschooling their three children (two Israelis and one Canadian) for seven years. This multicultural homeschool family is currently exploring North America in their 366 sq. ft. RV, on a mission to encourage homeschool families everywhere they go.
Growing up, Ana’s father read to her from the encyclopedia each night before bed, instilling in her a love of history and a passion for learning. As a homeschooling mom, Ana soon discovered living books — way better than the encyclopedia — and an incredible way to encourage children to fall in love with reading while shaping their faith and character. In this session, she’ll show you how to bring your own kids up using living books and wholesome biographies that build godly character and why that’s so important!
