Steve and his wife Sandra have been married since 1979. They have been blessed with four sons, three lovely daughters-in-law, and two special grandchildren. Their fourth son has Downs Syndrome and lives with them in Lititz, PA.

Steve has served in full or part time pastoral ministry for many years after graduating from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He is the creator of Math-U-See and the founder of Building Faith Families.

If you plan on participating in the curriculum swap, here are just a few things to remember:

  • We will have tables available at 9:00 a.m. for setup so that people coming in will be able to view tables as they arrive. They will also have a chance to view these tables in the afternoon.
  • It might be a good idea to share a table with a friend and take turns watching your table so everyone can participate in the events, which repeat each hour.  (A half table is free for each person/family and whole tables are $10.00.)
  • Please remember to bring your own petty cash to make change for people who want to buy your items. Decide ahead of time if you are willing to accept personal checks.
  • We will have a staff member in the room throughout the afternoon if you need to step away, but they cannot keep an eye on every table.  If you are comfortable with it, you can leave an envelope or box on your table for people to put money for purchases in your absence.
  • Since this is your table, it is not limited just to books, but teaching aids, videos, and anything else you think other homeschool families might find interesting.
  • If you have not already signed up for a table, please do so here so we can be sure to have enough set up ahead of time.
