About the Author

Marsha Hubler is a long-time educator who makes her home in Middleburg, PA. The author of several books, she has a master's degree in education and speaks widely at writer's conferences and school conventions.

More About the Author

Marsha Hubler's latest project is for ladies of all ages. Moving from juvenile fiction, she has written an Amish/Mennonite romance series entitled THE LOVES OF SNYDER COUNTY. The first book, BACHELOR'S CHOICE, was released by Helping Hands Press on July 2nd of 2012, with two sequels to follow, TEACHER'S PET and LOVE SONG FOR LOUELLEN. She also has written 12 short stories about her Amish/Mennonite characters in her series. All 12 stories have been released as separate e-stories over the last year in the SNYDER COUNTY'S QUILTING BEE SERIES I compilation. Marsha is presently working on the second set of 12 "shorts" for the SNYDER COUNTY QUILTING BEE SERIES II. She's also working on a girl/horse juvenile fiction series entitled THE LOVING HOOFS RESCUE RANCH SERIES, title one called SNOW, PHANTOM STALLION OF THE POCONOS.
Living in central PA in a community populated by the Amish and Mennonite folk, Marsha's accurate portrayal of their lifestyles enhances her writing style, bringing life to her Snyder County characters.
Marsha is the author of the eight-book best-selling Keystone Stables juvenile fiction series by Zonderkidz. She also is the author of three other kids' books, a Bible study guide for ladies, and a homeschooling helps book. She has a master's degree in education, has over 40 years experience in education, and is presently a homeschool consultant in central Pennsylvania.
Marsha has always loved kids and horses. She's been a foster parent and had owned horses for over 20 years. Her "Skye and Champ" stories in the Keystone Stables books reflect many of her own "wild" experiences with kids and horses. She also loves dogs and has two mixed terriers, Skippy and Bailey, who she adopted from a no-kill rescue shelter.
Living in a rural farm area of Pennsylvania affords Marsha the luxury of enjoying her three-acre property with her husband and dogs. She has a goldfish pond and a gazebo in her backyard.
Most of all, she is thankful to God for allowing her to write books. She accepted Christ as her Savior at the age of eleven, and now she can look back and see how God prepared her to write books. She considers it a special calling to write, especially for young people, and share biblical principles with which her readers can have happy and productive lives.
Marsha loves to hear from her fans and horse lovers. Visit her at www.marshahubler.com or at her two blogs: www.horsefactsbymarshahubler.wordpress.com and www.marshahubler.wordpress.com

As I opened You've Decided to Homeschool, Now What? and began to thumb through its pages, I was overwhelmed and frustrated with the amount of time that I had spent and continue to spend on the Internet searching for information regarding homeschool plans, organization tools, laws, curriculum, etc. If only I would have had this book from the start! UGH!

Are you asking yourself, "Where do I begin"? How about feeling overcome by anxiety and feeling like maybe you're getting in over your head? I recommend You've Decided to Homeschool, Now What? as a new "survival guide" for you!

This is a very good book, but not what I was looking for. Too much Christian based information and references - I was able to take some info out of it - just not what I needed.

Format: Paperback
This book did not provide me with much helpful information regarding my decision to homeschool. The vast majority of the book is made up of little checklists compiled by the author, which some may find helpful. But what it lacks is a good discussion of the great variety and customization of homeschooling (what appeals to me the most). I agree with a previous reviewer who noted there is not a single indication that this book is strictly religiously based. The author says that "Without a strong resolve based on a strong faith in God, your desire to homeschool will wane as such a weak reason fades into the sunset as the weeks and months roll by." That is to say, ANY reason, other than an unwavering commitment to God, is not the right reason and your attempts to homeschool will fail miserably. And that was just in the introduction! I stayed open minded (after all, at this point in the beginning stages of my research, there is at least SOMETHING to learn from every book I pick up), and saw the book through to the end but still wouldn't recommend it. Want a really good reason to homeschool that you don't have to feel ashamed of? Read "Dumbing us Down" by John Taylor Gatto.

Good, organized breakdown of various steps to ease into homeschooling. Easy to read and simplistic; beneficial to anyone thinking of transitioning to homeschooling.

Format: Paperback
There is nothing in the description to indicate that this is a book for religious homeschoolers. It is designed for those who believe that God wants them to homeschool their children (p.13) and that the leaders of a good homeschool organization need to be called by God (p.95). If you are not homeschooling for religious reasons there might not be much in here for you. The book makes no room for alternate learning styles either, one big reason many decide to homeschool. It says parents need a teacher's desk, a daily record of attendance, and periodic achievement tests in order to homeschool properly (p.35) and that children will make no progress if allowed to lie on the sofa in PJs and read until 11 AM (p.28). I recommend Linda Dobson's "The First Year of Homeschooling Your Child" as a good alternative.
