The Family Man

Roger & Jan Smith

Parenting Matters NOW

Choosing to homeschool their four children from the very start, and continuing through high school, the Smiths feel that this made all the difference in their family, and that their adult children are their greatest accomplishment.  The strong relationship they share with one another and their parents show the grace of God and that homeschooling is worth the investment of time and energy.  

The Smiths hail from Louisiana where Roger is a medical doctor, and Jan manages their horse farm and businesses. Dr. Smith currently serves on the board of his state and national homeschool organizations. Over the last 25 years, the Smiths have served in leadership roles in numerous organizations, including 4-H, Boy Scouts, Homeschool Speech and Debate, and the Chamber of Commerce.  Both Roger and Jan have been mentors at a local faith-based substance abuse program and at their church.

Though their home now is referred to as an “empty nest,” it is often filled with guests, because they see their home as the center of their service and ministry to others.  It is there that they find great pleasure in serving others and inspiring them to a deeper walk with their Lord, and a richer relationship with others.

Jan Loftus is lobbyist for Homeschoolers of Wyoming (HOW) and Wyoming’s coordinator for ParentalRights.org since 2011.  She and her husband, Greg, have two adult children and while homeschooling them, served as secretary of HOW for six years.  She functioned as campaign chairman for three successful runs for a current Wyoming State Rep.

Suzanne currently uses her teaching gifts as a substitute teacher for the Laramie County Public Schools, volunteers for CASA, and mentors younger homeschool moms.
