Jeffrey Lewis and his wife, Melissa have five children. In 1993 the Lord introduced them to homeschooling through some Godly friends. The encouragement they received showed them the need to shepherd their children's hearts "from the beginning". Jeff and Melissa believe the family should reflect the Biblical model of discipleship from one generation of believers to another. Jeff and Melissa serve on the leadership team of a local support group, HEART. Their involvement in HEART and in family ministries through their own church has given the Lewis family many opportunities to grow in their faith and to see God's hand turning the hearts of parents toward their children year after year. In 2006, Jeff and Melissa joined the Board of Directors of Illinois Christian Home Educators "ICHE".
