Home schooling community loses a pioneer

The sad news passed along by Home Educators Association of Virginia (HEAV). Our prayers and gratitude go to this family that helped pave the path the rest of us followed....

October 17, 1954 - July 4, 2010

This past Sunday, July 4, Sono Harris went to be with the Lord. And while we rejoice that Sono is in the presence of Jesus, we grieve with Gregg and his family for their unfathomable loss, and we pray they would feel the Lord's moment-by-moment presence and comfort both now and in the days ahead.

Gregg and Sono were homeschool pioneers back in the early '80s, and Gregg's Christian Life Workshops taught and encouraged hundreds of thousands of homeschool moms and dads at a time when there was no Internet and very little in the way of curriculum or printed materials.

Gregg has expressed appreciation for the love, prayers, and support his family has received and has extended an open invitation to Sono's memorial service this Saturday, July 10, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, at the Good Shepherd Community Church in Boring, Oregon (503-663-5280;

Please join us in praying for Gregg and his family, and, if you desire to help them out in a practical way--which is needful at this time--you can send cards, notes, and financial gifts directly to their home:

The Gregg Harris Family
6920 S. E. Hogan Road
Gresham, OR 97080

Financial gifts can also be sent via PayPal to either (tax-deductible) or (non-tax-deductible).
