The heart of Rick’s message is always “God is Faithful!!!” His prayer and goal is that the Lord would
inspire, encourage, and revitalize each and every parent, wherever they are on their homeschool
journey. Coach Rick has an amazing way of communicating from the Heart of God, to the Heart of
a Parent, about the Heart of a Child. His passion and enthusiasm to see young people become
all that God has created them to be, and his sincere love for the Lord, will be sure to inspire us
all. Whether you are a “first-time” homeschooler or a “seasoned veteran" Coach Rick reminds
others “We must first put the oxygen mask on ourselves, before assisting others”
