About Meredith Curtis
Meredith Curtis, pastor’s wife and homeschooling mom of five amazing children, lives to be a world changer and raise world changers! She loves Jesus, leads worship, homeschools, writes, mentors ladies, and sometimes even cooks dinner!
After graduating from the University of Delaware in 1984 with a BS degree in Nursing, she worked as a RN for two years until the birth of her first child in 1986. Since then, she has enjoyed the delightful life of a homemaker. As she watched the neighborhood children leave on the big yellow school bus each morning, she decided she wanted her children to spend the day with her, rather than in traditional school. In 1991, Meredith started homeschooling and found her niche. She has enjoyed every season of learning right along with her children. When it’s time for high school she designs her children’s high school curriculum and helps other moms do the same thing.
Believing that all of life is a grand adventure with so much to learn and discover, she loves teaching her own children and those in her homeschool co-op. She is the author of Joyful and Successful Homeschooling, Economics, Finances & Business Course, Unlocking the Mysteries of Homeschooling High School, Quick & EZ Unit Study Fun, God’s Girls Beauty Secrets, American Literature & Research, Let’s Have Our Own Medieval Banquet, Maggie King Mystery series, and MORE!
Meredith wants to encourage homeschooling families to be joyful and successful in their homeschool journey, all the way to high school graduation.
