About Susan K. Stewart

I’m Susan K. Stewart and my passion is to inspire you with practical and real-world solutions for your family.

How do I do that?


My husband and I began homeschooling in 1981 and two weeks later was handed a leader’s hat. Through failures and successes I learned real-life homeschooling. Although our youngest child graduated in 2000, we didn’t leave the homeschool community. I share practical ideas for teaching your children in the way God leads you.

What is socialization?

Being Ready

Our family has found it practical to ready for any unexpected situation. Two years into our homeschooling adventure, my husband lost his job. It was another two years before he found full-time work. We lived in California at the time and were always ready in case of an earthquake. We found those preparations helped us maintain our homeschool and our sanity.

Being ready for those unexpected situations is practical and important. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, you don’t need an underground bunker full of MREs, or a hidden mountain hideout.

Mission Statement

I serve God and others by offering real-world solutions based on my real-world experiences. I strive to be open, honest, and practical to inspire others to move forward.

Random Factoids About Me

I went to 14 different schools, including 3 high schools, before graduating.

When I graduated from college, I was eight months pregnant with my second child when I waddled on the stage to receive my diploma.

I have three pencil drawings from the Civil War era. My great-grandfather drew them.

I love doing research. I was the kid who got excited about doing a term paper.

I trained to dance in the San Francisco Children’s Ballet.

I am a Jesus lover.

I’m a chronic planner. My children say I plan spontaneous activities.

I was raised in California urban areas (i.e. San Francisco Bay Area) and love living on my rural acreage in Texas with three dogs, three cats, five chickens, and a peacock. (Oh yeah, and a husband.)

I have three incredible and successful children and five of the smartest, cutest, and best grandchildren – ever.

I love to travel by train.

I began my writing career with a neighborhood newspaper that I wrote and copied by hand, generally with a pencil because I make so many mistakes.

I ran for a local elective office. That’s off my bucket list.

I’m an introvert, but I love sharing practical ideas as a speaker.
