Mrs. Cheryl Hernandez is a stay-at-home mother, happily married to her husband of thirty-three years. They have nine children (seven girls and two boys) and have been homeschooling for twenty-four years. Their six oldest are Seton graduates. Two of her daughters have attended the University of Dallas, two others attended Ave Maria University, and her son recently graduated with a civil engineering degree from Florida State University.
She and her husband are active lay members of the Home of the Mother, a movement of the Church with missions that include devotion to the Eucharist, the Blessed Mother, and the conquest of the youth for Christ. Their eldest daughter has been a sister in this order for several years and lives in Ireland. Another daughter is currently a postulant living in Spain.
Cheryl looks to God for the graces she needs to homeschool, especially with her special needs daughter.
Her family lives in rural Dade City, Florida, and together they love spending time outdoors — camping, gardening or sitting around their backyard bonfire with friends. Born in California and raised in Europe, Cheryl has a BFA in Graphic Design and still enjoys drawing and painting whenever she can find the time. A convert to Catholicism, she credits homeschooling for opening her eyes to the beauty and richness of our Faith. She enjoys sharing her love for Catholic family life and homeschooling by writing for setonmagazine.com and familiesfullyalive.com.
