Melissa Savage has been married to Jerome for 25 years and are parents of 6 children. She is involved in many ministries through her diocese and parish where she resides in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The Savages began homeschooling after realizing the public school system would not work for their eldest child. Melissa was reluctant to homeschool at first because she thought she lacked what it would take to accomplish the task. As it turns out, God has given her what she needed at every stage. Each of her children has unique needs and she is a very effective force in their education. She has become very proficient in keeping several balls in the air- all at the same time – but she would be the first to tell you that she doesn’t see it that way.
Melissa’s work has been published on CatholicHousehold.com and is co-author of Planting the Seeds of Faith. You can also find her as a guest host of Homeschool Lifeline on Radio Maria Network or at homeschool conferences during the year. She speaks on topics relating to homeschooling, Catholic parenting throughout the chaos, surviving the teen years, and Melissa loves to share how to find God’s grace and love through it all.
