      Melissa Morgan is a Christian writer who homeschools her children from a Biblical perspective. She and her husband, Hugh, down-sized their lifestyle from two incomes to one (or one-and a half, including home business income), and now own their home mortgage-free through sweat equity, financial finesse, and God's grace.

      The Morgans are independent representatives for Life Plus, a company specializing in nutrition supplements and other health products. Melissa's three children, age 12, 10, and 1, have never attended school.

      Melissa Morgan has worked as a volunteer clown at a mission in Columbus. She has taught various age groups, from preschool to adult, in Sunday school classes, children's church, the 12 Steps for Kids, and monthly home school support group classes. The Morgans built their own house, contracting out the heavy work, but completing much of the plumbing, electric, insulation, finish work, and landscaping themselves, learning as they went.

    • Received a Certificate of Achievement for teaching and communication skills from Dr. Howard G. Hendricks, Chairman of the Christian Leadership Center
    • The Morgan family currently attends New Song Community Church, which is part of the Great Commission family of churches.
