About Me


I have been a wife to Gilbert Simpao for 20 years, a mom for 16 years and a homeschooler for 13 years. Home is my workplace but recently God has been opening doors so I can reach out to others through parenting and homeschooling seminars, and now through social media and hopefully this blog. I set up and currently moderate a Facebook group: Homeschoolers of the Philippines with almost 3,000 members.

I love craft-making (mostly paper, and now with ink!), making the best choco-chip cookies according to my clan, playing tennis (rooting for Rafa Nadal) and learning from God’s Word daily.

(Thank you, Mabel Nocum, my tennis team mate, for this photo!)

  3. I have been praying fervently that my husband allow me to homeschool our kids aged 9 and 3, now that I have resigned from my job. Can you suggest a powerful video that I can recommend my husband to watch while I constantly pray for his change of heart?
