Mrs. Amy Kalscheur graduated from Marian College in 1995 with a BA in Elementary Education and Mild Disabilities. After teaching in public schools for 2 years, Amy and her husband, Michael, decided that when their son was ready for school, they would begin by homeschooling instead of the traditional route. Amy and Michael now have 8 children, all of whom have been homeschooled since birth.
Amy, the treasurer for Holy Family Home Educators, has been chairwoman of the Indianapolis Catholic Home School Conference since 2007. In addition to teaching at her local homeschool co-op, she also runs children’s events for the Knights of Columbus. She has managed 4 political campaigns for her husband. Amy and Michael are also active in their parish’s Marriage Ministry program, St Zita’s Altar Society, and Little Flowers Girls Club. Amy has been a repeat guest speaker on Faith in Action – Catholic Radio, and has been invited to speak at family conferences in several states and in Canada. She has authored two books: What’s My Plan? – the Catholic Homeschool Year Planner, and God is Good, All the Time. When not teaching, Amy and Michael prefer to be ballroom dancing.
2017 Speaking Circuit
When you are diagnosed with cancer, fear can take hold. However, Christ can lift you up and remove your fear. It only takes faith – and sometimes a little help from others. God is Good, All the Time is a journal kept by Amy during the year and a half that she had cancer. In it, she tells of her fear, joys, and pain. Through it, she hopes that you, too, can see the blessings that cancer can bring. Prayerful and inspiring.
