Kuhl's Bio

A former public school teacher, I thought my teaching career was over when my children were born! After homeschooling a bright, learning disabled son for grades 4 to 12, I now enjoy writing, speaking, teaching and consulting. I enjoy reading, traveling, hiking, running a book club, and conversing.

God's mercy transforms and blesses my life daily. My husband and I are members of New Hope Presbyterian Church in Fairfax, VA, where he is a ruling elder. We have two terrific grown children.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Kathy Kuhl and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
