“I looked on child rearing not only as a work of love and duty but as a profession that was fully as interesting and challenging as any honorable profession in the world and one that demanded the best that I could bring to it.” Those are the words of Rose Kennedy. While most mothers aren’t raising a future U.S. president, they certainly deserve recognition for their remarkable work. And this week on Home School Heartbeat, HSLDA staff members have been recognizing the mothers in their lives.
I’m Mike Farris, and I want to tell you about my mom. My mom, Bernadine Farris, has a great deal to do with the fact that I have been able to accomplish a lot of things in my life. Saying it simply, my mom believed that I could do literally anything. By her believing in me and standing by me, it really has been a source of confidence that has been material is a big, big way in my life.
My name is Sindy Quiñónez and I work as assistant editor for HSLDA. Mi madre ha sido una inspiración y bendición para mi vida. Aprecio su ejemplo, su cariño, y el toque de amor que lleva todo lo que hace. I love you Mommy!

I’m Tj Schmidt, and I’m an HSLDA attorney. As a staff attorney, people often thank us for the work we do to protect the right to homeschool. However, I think my wife, and the many thousands of homeschooling mothers across the country, deserve much more of the credit for protecting homeschooling. I am so thankful for the tremendous amount of daily work that my wife puts in to manage the home, care for our four and a half children, and educate them at home. Happy Mother’s Day! I love you, sweetie.
