Our “Homeschool Hints” MPE podcast is available on Apple Podcasts!

After hearing from many of our members, we decided this tool can help us reach new audiences and strengthen the connections we’ve already made within the homeschooling community. 

Our plan is to publish a new podcast episode at least once a month. For now, subscriptions are all free.

If you have any suggestions for upcoming episodes, feel free to email us at “podcast” at midwestparenteducators dot org!

Notable quotes

“I look at MPE as my ministry, and I’ve looked at it that way for over 20 years.”
Chad Womble, Immediate Past MPE President

“To me, MPE has been about the relationships that we’ve built.”
Chad Womble, Immediate Past MPE President

“It’s been a dream of mine that eventually, MPE is run by homeschool graduates. And part of that dream is getting our children involved.”

“I came [to Women’s Encouragement Day] as a young mom, desperate for community and to be encouraged on a journey I did not understand, … and just realizing how life-giving it was.”
Krystal Evensen, homeschool mom of 12

“I’m not a homeschool mom, but I certainly understand and can see the need for encouragement. It’s a really hard job, and the paycheck is deferred way down the road, so I’m glad to see that we’re really working towards encouraging moms.”
