She's the creative mind behind the best-selling "Family Guide to the Biblical Holidays," among several other insightful titles.

Hi, I'm Robin I homeschooled my nine children for over thirty years (1986-2021). 

My passion is helping people understand the Bible as a unified story of God's love and plan, revealing Jesus in both the Old and New Testaments. I accomplish this through my 12 Bible Era Bible Journal Classes, exploring a different historical era each month, and various 30-Day Topical Bible Studies.

Key milestones in my journey:

  • 1986: Began homeschooling
  • 1990: Founded Family Christian Academy (FCA), an umbrella school and chain of bookstores that became a leading supplier of Christian homeschool materials in the U.S. (My oldest daughter took this over in 1999).
  • 1990s: Authored best-selling homeschool books while managing FCA.
  • 1996-2001: Wrote "A Family Guide to the Biblical Holidays
  • 2015: Launched BibleJournalClasses.com, combining digital art with Bible study.
  • 2024: Wrote and published Jesus in the Bible Holidays

Throughout my career, I've been a speaker at homeschool conferences and contributed to prominent homeschooling and Messianic magazines. I'm deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve both the homeschooling and Messianic communities.

My books and classes are my legacy for future generations, offering a treasury of encouragement and biblical wisdom.
