It’s a giant leap from homeschooling at the kitchen table to working full-time after all the kids have left home. For Sandra Lovelace, homeschooling led her to an exciting life after homeschool.

Mike Smith:
My guest today is Sandra Lovelace, director of Lifework Forum and international consultant for HSLDA. Thank you for joining me on the program, Sandra.

Sandra Lovelace:
Hello, Mike, it’s always a pleasure to visit with you.

Mike:
Sandra, you and your husband began homeschooling in 1980 and graduated your youngest daughter in 1998. Now you serve Christian homeschool families all over the world. How did you find your way from homeschooling to such an exciting ministry?

Sandra:
I know it sounds like a giant leap, Mike, to go from homeschooling at the kitchen table to encouraging homeschooling all around the globe. But really, it’s only what I’ve been doing all along. You know our active homeschooling years were a really exciting time. God built in a lot of multi-cultural experiences and travel. And it was so much that actually, I have to admit, that when I got to the place where I realized it was coming to an end, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It felt kind of like looking at the end of the tunnel and not being sure there was a light down there. So I started praying and asking the Lord to show me what he had next and to prepare me for it. After about three years of praying, I asked a friend to join me and she suggested I write a job description of the perfect job. I sent it to her, and Mike, you won’t believe it but she wrote back to me and said she had the exact same job and that it was open.

Mike:
Well, thank you, Sandra. Until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
