About Us

We equip and encourage parents to embrace a Scriptural pattern of home education where family life is the environment for childhood learning and discipleship. A godly character is the highest priority; academics and practical life skills are taught to grow children into useful Christian citizens. Home education is as basic as the parent-child relationship; ministering to the heart is more important than training the mind. We assist homeschoolers in raising up future generations of wise, servant-hearted children with a compelling vision for spiritual revival.

Rick and Marilyn Boyer are true pioneers of the home education movement. They began teaching the eldest of their fourteen children at home in 1980 and are still actively home schooling their three youngest children today.

Rick and Marilyn have authored several books on home schooling and Christian parenthood and have spoken at conferences all across America and in several foreign countries. Their books have been translated into a number of foreign languages and have circulated around the world. Their ministry, The Learning Parent, encourages parents through the resources they publish, their speaking ministry, this Web site, a monthly newsletter, and their articles, which have been published in several leading home schooling magazines.

Marilyn is always appreciated for her keen and warmhearted insights into parenting while Rick, with his humorous, folksy style has been called “the Will Rogers of the home schooling movement.”
