HOMESCHOOLING TODAY MAGAZINE COMES FULL CIRCLE
Somerset, Kentucky, December 6, 2012 — Twenty years ago Homeschooling Today magazine was founded by homeschooling parents with a vision to encourage and assist homeschooling families. Today, that magazine returns to the family as Alex and Ashley (Strayer) Wiggers, homeschool graduates and owners of Paradigm Press LLC, became the new publishers of Homeschooling Today magazine. The leadership team includes parents Greg and Debbie Strayer (cofounders of the magazine in 1992) and Josh and Cindy Wiggers, owners of Geography Matters.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to once again equip and encourage homeschoolers through the vehicle of Homeschooling Today magazine,” said one of the Executive Editors, Debbie Strayer. “Our family grew up with Homeschooling Today and now its ministry continues through our adult children,” she said. “We couldn’t be happier!”
“Despite their youth, Alex and Ashley are uniquely equipped to take on this new venture. They have several years experience in writing and publishing through their work at Geography Matters. Their heart to touch lives and impact the homeschooling community will be evident as the editions start rolling off the presses. We could not be more proud to see them taking up the mantle of publishing Homeschooling Today magazine,” said Josh and Cindy Wiggers of Geography Matters.
Homeschooling Today magazine focuses on providing information, encouragement and tools for those who homeschool, shared from a Christian perspective. The magazine doesn’t just offer encouragement but also ready-to-use lessons and activities for anyone who wants to expand the educational experience of their children, while keeping the approach to learning natural. The multigenerational make-up of the magazine’s team brings a youthful enthusiasm to the publication while also keeping in mind voices of experience.
“We are thrilled that the vision we sought to promote with Homeschooling Today will continue with the new owners,” commented Steve and Kara Murphy, the former owners and publishers of the magazine. “We are confident that this team is exactly what the magazine needs to continue equipping parents for the work of discipling their children.”
The magazine anticipates an early 2013 publication date with its Twentieth Anniversary Issue. With the leadership of the next generation, we look forward to celebrating many more anniversaries with Homeschooling Today magazine.
