More About Marsha Hubler
Marsha has had a background conducive to effective writing. She has a master's degree in education from Bloomsburg University, Bloomsburg, PA, and has been an educator for over forty years. She had co-founded two private schools, Kreamer Christian Academy, Kreamer, PA, and the Bethesda Prep School, Milton, PA, and had served as teacher/administrator in each. She is presently a PA certified homeschool consultant, working out of her office in her Middleburg home, where she lives with her husband and two dogs. Marsha has owned horses for over 20 years, therefore knows her horse facts in and out. She also lives in central PA, "Dutch" country, highly populated by the Amish and Mennonite, who have been a valuable first-hand resource for Marsha's latest project, a series about the Amish and Mennonite folk in the beautiful Susquehanna Valley in central PA. Marsha is excited that her eight-book "Keystone Stables Series" published by Zonderkidz has become a best seller. She also is quite proud of her last two stand-alone books, RICKIE RIDES TO THE RESCUE and THE SECRET OF WOLF CANYON. She has 13 books in print with her Amish/Mennonite fiction series for ladies entitled "The Loves of Snyder County," soon to be added to her publishing credentials. She hears from her fans on a regular basis. Several have said they have started to seriously think about God, and one gal wrote that she was thinking of killing herself until she read one of Marsha's books. "That's the best pay any writer could ever get," Marsha says. "I write not only to entertain but also to encourage my readers. Every one of my books has a positive outlook on life with solutions to every problem with God's help. Her life verse is 1 Corinthians 15:10a: "But by the grace of God I am what I am ..."

This is a very good book, but not what I was looking for. Too much Christian based information and references - I was able to take some info out of it - just not what I needed.
A Homeschoolers "Survival Guide"! Aug 1, 2008
As I opened You've Decided to Homeschool, Now What? and began to thumb through its pages, I was overwhelmed and frustrated with the amount of time that I had spent and continue to spend on the Internet searching for information regarding homeschool plans, organization tools, laws, curriculum, etc. If only I would have had this book from the start! UGH!
Are you asking yourself, "Where do I begin"? How about feeling overcome by anxiety and feeling like maybe you're getting in over your head? I recommend You've Decided to Homeschool, Now What? as a new "survival guide" for you!
A waste of my time Feb 23, 2008
This book is a weird mix of uber-classicist homeschooling and fundamentalist Christianity, which ultimately renders it completely useless. There is nothing in the description to indicate that this is a book for religious homeschoolers. But even those who believe that God wants them to homeschool their children (p.13) and that the leaders of a good homeschool organization need to be called by God (p.95) may find the contents of this book just too weird to stomach.
For instance: If you believe you need a teacher's desk, a daily record of attendance, and periodic achievement tests in order to homeschool properly (p.35), or that your child will make no progress if allowed to lie on the sofa in PJs and read until 11 AM (p.28), this is the book for you. Otherwise don't waste your time. Stick with Linda Dobson's "The First Year of Homeschooling Your Child" instead.
