Deborah Wuehler – Director of Production
Deborah WuehlerDeborah Wuehler is the Senior Editor and Director of Production here at The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine. She started as our Devotional Editor nearly 10 years ago and has loved every day of her time here. She would say she is a very ordinary homeschool mom–with one exception: she has an extra-ordinary God Who provides all she needs for life and homeschooling. She has eight children aged 4 to 21: several ordinary children, a few gifted, a couple of struggling learners, and one special needs child. Her house is messy unless someone is coming over, her boys can be loud, and not all of her girls wear dresses. She is a leader of her local homeschool group and prays constantly for the right balance of priorities. Deborah’s mission is this: “To point other homeschoolers to the Lord in all they do, think, and feel and to confirm that they, too, can find everything they need for life, godliness–and homeschooling–in their knowledge of Him. (2 Peter 1:3, 4)”.
