Rachael Carman is a wife and mother and she is passionate about both roles. Married for 23 years, she and her husband, Davis, have been blessed with seven children ranging in age from 6 to 19. Rachael has served on the board of North Carolinians for Home Education since 2002. In 2003, she started Real Refreshment Retreats for homeschool moms. In 2005, Focus on the Family published Rachael’s book, Soundbites from Heaven—What God Wants Us to Hear When We Talk To Our Kids.
In June 2008, Rachael and Davis became the new owners of Apologia Educational Ministries and entered the world of homeschool curriculum publishing. Rachel’s ultimate goal, and the Apologia mission, is to help homeschool families learn, live, and defend the Christian faith.
Rachael has enjoyed speaking and encouraging homeschool groups for over 10 years. She is quick to admit her many imperfections and to share stories that highlight her shortcomings and the redemptive hand of Jesus Christ. It is her heart’s desire to become all God has planned for her to be for His glory. Her humor will put you at ease, her honesty will surprise you, and her heart will inspire you to go deeper, stand firm, and be strong!
