2021 Homeschool Idaho Convention Speakers
As a popular author and speaker, Zan’s passion is to encourage parents to raise children who love the Lord, understand their callings in life, and become active citizens who understand the principles of freedom that undergird our American heritage. She currently works with BJU Press Homeschool/HomeWorks by Precept. For sixteen years, Zan worked with Christian publishers to develop homeschool curriculum and resources. She considers the twenty-one-years she and her husband, Joe, spent homeschooling their own three children from kindergarten through high school to be one of the greatest privileges of her life. Zan has been married to Joe since 1977 and together they have three children and six grandchildren.
In 2015 Zan was presented with the Chris Klicka Award for her dedication and commitment to home education worldwide. The governor of South Carolina presented Zan with the Order of the Palmetto, the highest honor a civilian in her state can receive.
