Husband of a Homeschooling MomNashville, TNAtlanta, GAMobile, AL
Steve Blackston is a husband, father, children's pastor, civil engineer, homeschool blogger and "jack of all trades". Born and raised on a farm in middle Georgia, he soon left for the big city of Atlanta and college. After receiving a BSCET from Southern College of Technology he went to work for GDOT. Not long after that, he moved over to another job that brought him back to his roots in farming with the NRCS as the Area Engineer for Northwest Georgia. Later he was ordained as a children's pastor in his home church in Thomaston, GA where he enjoys spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. Throughout all of this, homeschooling came along with three kids! The blog Husband of a Homeschooling Mom was born back in May of 2014 at the Teach Them Diligently convention in Spartanburg, SC and has continued to provide insight to homeschooling dads and moms ever since.

Homeschooling Dad - Bystander or Participant?
Many men are prepared for their wife to teach the kids in homeschooling, but how many men participate? It is time for the men to become an active participant in homeschooling. More than the janitor, more than a buddy, and more than a financial supporter. Let’s look at way that the husband can be more to the homeschool environment.
Marriage and Relationships
In this session we are going to sit down and discuss what is needed in a Biblical relationship and marriage. We will be looking at what God expects out of both of us and what we may be expecting out of our spouse and just not getting. This is for both guys and gals and is expected to be an open conversation.
