Karen DeBeus to Speak at Thrive!
May 31-June 2, Winston-Salem, NC

Karen DeBeus will speak at the 2018 NCHE Thrive! Conference—May 31-June 2, Winston-Salem, NC. This will be Karen's first time to speak at the NCHE Conference, and we are looking forward to being encouraged by her.

Karen DeBeus is a homeschooling mom learning to live more simply and keep God at the center of it all. She is the author of three best-selling homeschooling books and writes at Simply Living for Him and Bible Based Homeschooling. She speaks nationally and locally about homeschooling and her desire for others to clear the clutter from their lives and seek God first. She enjoys life on her hobby farm with her husband and four children. Together they are a work-at-home family pursuing a simple life with purpose and, above all, seeking to glorify God in all they do.​
