The world is changing. Now more than ever, we must equip our students to be critical thinkers and effective communicators who “destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ” (2 Cor. 10:5).

Stacy's Achievements
Farrell's Bio

Stacy Farrell’s worldview changed when she embarked on her homeschooling adventure in 2002.

 

Her background as a consultant and writer well-prepared her to teach communication skills; however, only hands-on experience (and much time spent on her knees) equipped her to mentor her sons through the character-transformation required to help them work toward their full potential.

Stacy has spoken at a variety of homeschool conferences and has published articles in leading Christian and homeschool magazines. Prior to homeschooling, she wrote a broad range of material for corporate, Christian, and and non-profit clients. She also managed a law firm that specialized in civil rights litigation and constitutional law. Today, she loves to help empower students to recover territory lost by “fuzzy thinking” and low expectations.

Although Stacy loves to write, speak, and teach, she considers her role as wife to Roger and mother to two precious sons to be her greatest work and privilege.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Stacy Farrell 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.
