Listen HERE


Mary Hood, Ph.D., along with her husband, Roy, homeschooled their five children all the way from kindergarten through college entrance. All of them are now adults, and have made a successful transition to college and beyond.

Beginning in the 1980s, she has spoken and written widely on a variety of topics concerning home education throughout the United States and overseas. She has a Ph.D. in education, and is the director of The Association of Relaxed Christian Home Educators, aka, "ARCHERS for the Lord" (Reference Psalm 127), which is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization. She is also a regular columnist for "The Old Schoolhouse Magazine".


For nine years, Mary ran a large resource center for homeschoolers in the Atlanta area, where ARCHERS is based. She is the author of such books as "The Relaxed Home School", "The Joyful Home Schooler", and "The Enthusiastic Home Schooler".

Now in her sixties, Mary continues to write and speak widely on issues pertaining to homeschooling, as well as the wider field of education. Her organization is currently trying to raise money to start a small private school and homeschooling resource center in Georgia, and is also involved in developing a curriculum guide for relaxed homeschooling.
