Publishers Paul and Gena Suarez, who reside in eastern Tennessee with their family, have homeschooled their seven children since 1990. They embrace and promote the biblical philosophy that “homeschooling” is not so much about schooling/education, as it is about discipleship-bringing up our children “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Eph. 6:4). The Suarez family wishes to share this vision around the word as they publish the trade magazine for homeschool families, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. They can be reached at Publisher@TheOldSchoolhouse.com. Click Here to find out more about the Suarez family and their TOS beginnings.
