Melissa Savage resides in North Carolina with her husband, Jerome, and their six children.
The Savages began homeschooling after realizing the public school system would not work for their oldest, Thomas. Melissa was reluctant to homeschool 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 one 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 and Jerome have an inspiring dedication to the Catholic Church and are involved in many ministries. Melissa is now a regular speaker at IHM Homeschool Conferences.
