About the guest

Eujeana Chism, a veteran homeschool mom of over 20 years, used BJU Press Homeschool materials to build a strong foundation for her four children. Education has always been very important to both Eujeana and her late husband, Mark. They believe that BJU Press provided the high-quality academics needed to keep their children on track while allowing them the time to explore each child’s interests after academics. She homeschooled her children from the beginning and her last child graduated in 2014. Eujeana has had the privilege of talking with homeschoolers all over the country, sharing what has worked for her family throughout the years to accomplish a well-rounded education for her children. All four of her children are now adults, three of them are married, and all are successful and happy. She became HomeWorks by Precept Consultant in 2004, grew to lead and build two different teams as a senior consultant, and currently serves as Manager, Trainer and Customer & Consultant Development since 2017. Eujeana enjoys traveling, blogging, and sharing about her homeschool journey and family travels. She also loves to draw and woodburn. Her life verse is Philippians 4:4 “Rejoice in the Lord alway, and again I say rejoice.”

Mentioned in this episode


At BJU Press Homeschool, we’re committed to providing children an education from a biblical worldview that is academically sound and challenges them to advance, think critically, and live like Christ. This type of education is not often possible in public schools because of the number of children taught in a classroom, a difference in worldview, and peer and societal pressure to conform. Homeschooling allows parents to instruct and disciple their children without daily fighting messages from an opposing worldview taught in the classroom. And with tuition costs and fees for private schooling or tutoring, homeschooling may be the only option for parents who are concerned for their children’s physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
