Heidi St. John
Heidi married her college sweetheart, Jay, in 1989 and, shortly afterward, they went into full- time ministry together. Since then, the St. Johns have become happy parents of six children (ages 4–18) and are expecting a seventh. In 2004, after 17 years of pastoring, Jay and Heidi founded First Class Homeschool Ministries, a parachurch ministry that helps churches reach out to homeschooling families by hosting a homeschool cooperative. Jay and Heidi also speak and lead worship at homeschool conferences and other related events. In 2010, Heidi’s first book, titled after one of her favorite workshops, was published. The Busy Homeschool Mom’s Guide to Romance is combines light-hearted humor with a straightforward look at the importance of nurturing marriage throughout the homeschooling years.

Nurturing Your Marriage Through the Homeschool Years
Do you ever feel as if your life is “all homeschool—all the time?” Ever wonder where the girl your husband married went? This e-vent is for every mom who has collapsed into bed at the end of the day, looked into the eyes of her husband and promised “tomorrow” she’d have time for him. The trouble is, tomorrow finds her more exhausted than the day before.
If you have ever felt caught between the demands of homeschooling your children and meeting the needs of your husband, you’re not alone. Join us and discover how even a busy homeschool mom can make time to nurture her marriage. It’s not as hard as you think—and more important than you may realize.
