Barbara West is the Christ-following wife to one unbelievably supportive husband, Bruce, a retired Air Force pilot. With their military nomadic lifestyle, they have set up house 22 times as the Lord financed their missionary journey around the world. They have homeschooled since 1988 through seven states, our nation’s capitol, and Germany, the Philippines, and Romania. She is the classically eclectic, slightly Charlotte Mason mom to five – three homeschool grads and two high schoolers. She is also a grandmother to 4 little ones. Her greatest challenge is maintaining balance in her daily life as many competing interests vie for priority.
Barbara is also an accomplished speaker. She has been the Keynote, the Featured, and Workshop Speaker at numerous conventions and conferences in both the US and abroad. She currently serves on the Global Home Education Exchange, an organization promoting the parental right to homeschool around the globe. She and Bruce established home school organizations wherever they lived.
Barbara and Bruce had always wanted to open their home to more children through adoption. More than one failed adoption attempt had them rethinking the Lord’s leading. Then, at the beginning of the summer in 2007, they got a call that they had been matched with a sibling set of 3 from the Philippines! The adoption was finalized in 2008.
The West family is active. In addition to their love for alpine skiing, they also enjoy traveling, having hit 6 of the 7 continents. Encouraging others through teaching or coaching is a big part of who they are. They enjoy helping others seize their passions and move forward, growing stronger.
