Wanda is a homeschool mom and practicing social worker. With an Honors degree in social work and a postgraduate study in child psychology, Wanda practices social work pro bono.
She was very fortunate to find the Lord as her savior at a very young age and has always been driven to care for people. After receiving Jesus as her Lord and Savior, she started spreading the gospel!
While working as a part-time missionary, she completed her social work studies and then proceeded to work as a full-time missionary in Hillbrow, focused on the poor, destitute, and orphans.
She also spent time working with people with special needs - from mentally ill to physically challenged. She completed her honors degree in community-based social work and was privileged to work in Soshanguve. As a social worker, she got to see and experience the Variety of real life.
After her time in Soshanguwe, she was head of the dept of social work charged with all street children related matters in Gauteng. She stepped away from city life when she married her husband Deon. Him being a Geologist has taken them to many interesting parts of their beautiful country.
While counseling at schools in a town they lived in, the school had a demand for a teacher and asked her to step in. Before she knew it, she taught for 6 years until their son Joshua and his sister, Caroli, was born a near 12 months later. She always kept her private practice running, but did slow down for a while.
They decided to homeschool their children 27 years ago before they even got married. So for the last 15 years, her main focus in life has been to raise the great gifts God has bestowed on her. This, she humbly and fearfully does.
She has been fortunate in her homeschool time to meet, many wonderful devoted mothers on this journey, and without being part of a greater community of homeschoolers this journey would have failed many times over. So her hope is to encourage at least some moms out there and pay all the grace she received forward. "
