About Us

We are a Christian homeschooling family living in rural Maine. It is our desire to produce God-honoring, family-friendly materials. We are so pleased that you have taken time to visit our website. May you be encouraged on your journey!

Please check back from time to time. We have begun the second volume of Math for the Master(y), which will be a multi-year project, and are also currently working on expanding the “Whatsoever Things” book series and the “Friends for Life” Picture Book Studies.

Our products are designed with ease of use in mind. Most of them were developed with our children and have been tested by them over time. We’ve been homeschooling for almost twenty years, have graduated our three oldest children, and are still homeschooling our younger ones.

We believe that homeschooling is an outworking or an application of Deuteronomy 6:6-7, “And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”

One of our hopes in founding Roots by the River is that the Lord might work through us to encourage and enable other parents to faithfully train their children to follow Him.
