About Robin

Meet Robin Sampson McCarthy, a dynamic homeschooling mom of nine and seasoned 30-year Bible educator. She's the creative mind behind the best-selling "Family Guide to the Biblical Holidays," among several other insightful titles. Robin combines her passion for teaching with her artistic flair, crafting beautiful Bible journaling art. Residing in the vibrant city of Nashville, TN, she continues to inspire and educate with her unique blend of expertise and creativity.

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

My goal is to help people see the entire Bible as one unified story revealing God's love and plan (seeing Jesus in both the Old and New Testaments). This is accomplished by teaching the entire Bible focusing on historical times in the 12 Bible Era Bible Journal Classes. Each month my classes focus on a historical Bible era. 

I also teach several 30-Day Topical Bible Studies. 

  • In 1986 I began homeschooling.¬†
  • In 1990 I founded our family business, Family Christian Academy¬†(FCA),¬†an umbrella school and chain of six bookstores that became one of the largest suppliers of Christian home education materials in the United States.¬†
  • In the 90s, I wrote several best-selling homeschool books for Christian homeschoolers while running FCA as a family business.
  • I was a speaker at home education conferences and contributed to leading homeschooling and Messianic magazines.
  • From ¬†1996 to 2001, I wrote¬†A Family Guide to the Biblical Holidays¬†which I am revising now.¬†¬†You can follow the updates in¬†the Bible Holidays Facebook Group.¬†
  • In 2015, when the Bible journaling trend began, ¬†I discovered I could combine my love of digital art and Bible¬†by¬†designing Bible journal kits. I started¬†teaching online at BibleJournalClasses.com, a non-profit organization.¬†
  • I am so blessed that God has allowed me to be a part of homeschooling and Messianic communities.
  • My books and classes a my legacy for my grandchildren and their children. After I am¬†gone, they will be able to¬†draw from this treasury of encouragement and biblical wisdom.
  • 2024-2025 Lord willing, the 12 Bible Era Class will¬†eventually be¬†available¬†in Kindle¬†and paper book format.¬†
