Zsanae Miller
Zsanae and her husband, Kevin, have been married for over 21 years and have three beautiful children. They enjoy helping shape their children as they watch them grow in Christ – fulfilling their callings and purposes for His glory. Zsanae has been homeschooling for the past eleven years (and has even graduated her oldest) and she is devoted to encouraging other homeschoolers in their journeys. As co-host of Homeschooling With Purpose, Zsanae desires to create community – one where like-minded parents/homeschoolers can learn from one another and spur each other on along the way. Zsanae is also passionate about encouraging women to live out their callings, as they look to Jesus (not their roles or circumstances) to find their identity. She loves to remind them of who He is and who they are as daughters of the King!

She’s been married to her husband Brad for 20 years this fall and together they have been homeschooling their children for the past 12 years. Michaela leads a non-profit homeschool ministry and private satellite school (Grace and Glory Homeschooling) in Corona, California. The Roekles also serve as Regional Advisory Board Members for CHEA and are passionate about encouraging others on this grand adventure called homeschooling!
