Susannah Conrad grew up in California and has lived in and traveled through many states before calling Virginia home. She is the wife to David and a mother to seven children, aged toddler to adult. Susannah was drawn to homeschooling in the early 2000s when it became clear that learning together as a family was more effective than sending the children off one by one to be educated by others. She is the head of the successful Virginia Latter-Day Saints homeschool community, where she joyfully puts her degree in theatre and dance to good use. Her home overflows with good books, yarn, fabric, and beads. She can often be found curled up with a book or sewing a dress at the last minute.
