Stephanie Jackson
Member since 09/2014
Stephanie, and husband Jeff, are parents of five amazing children and have been homeschooling since 1998. Spanning the field from elementary through post-secondary, Stephanie shares a wealth of experiences - both successes and failures - and laces them all with practical wisdom and a large dose of humility. As executive director of Nova Scotia's provincial group, HEMS:helping encouraging mentoring serving, Stephanie has had many opportunities to reach the hearts of homeschoolers and she has a passion to encourage others on their homeschool journey. Stephanie's first book, Love the Journey, is a daily devotional for moms and focuses on God's faithfulness in the everyday of parenting and homeschooling.

My Mission Statement

It is my fervent desire to minister to other families in terms of helping, encouraging, mentoring and serving (hence the name of our provincial group). Over our years of homeschooling, it has been my privilege to receive encouragement and wisdom from those who have gone before me. I have survived much trial and error and have been blessed by our children and their successes, both academic & personal. I would like to share my insights and experience with those coming along after me in order to help equip them to persevere on this incredible journey.
