Jan hails from Louisiana where she manages the family horse farm and businesses. Her husband Roger is a medical doctor. All four of their adult children were homeschooled until the college years, and home education has been an exciting journey for them where they became experts in home and family management, leadership, and community service. They continue to serve in their church as mentors and teachers, as well as serving on the board of their state homeschool organization and the board of the National Alliance of Christian Home Education Leaders. Dr. Smith has a weekly video blog on parenting (@Parenting Matters Now).
