My name is Joi Kelley and I am the Membership Coordinator for AGAPE. This is my 2nd year with AGAPE and I love it! It is such a blessing just to have that time with other parents who are on the homeschool journey.
I have been married to Patrick for almost 18 years and we have 3 children. Logan is 21 and I inherited him when we got married. Logan went through the Buncombe County School system and graduated from TC Roberson. He got married January 21st to Kristen Allmond and will be entering the Air Force in June of this year. Kaity is 15 and in 10th grade and Erin is 12 and in 7th grade. We began homeschooling in 2002 when Kaity was 6. She attended public school for kindergarten, but we pulled her out 3 weeks into 1st grade and have never looked back! We use a variety of curriculum, including Apologia Science, Easy Grammar and Teaching Textbooks. Our house is full of books and we are all avid readers. Kaity & Erin both cheer for the Asheville Saints and play soccer for the WCAA Trailblazers. We are also members of the Blue Ridge Home School Choir and attend Biltmore Baptist Church. No worries about socialization in this family! I truly enjoy being with my kids and could not imagine doing it any other way. I am an avid couponer and our family loves to travel, garden, listen to music and spend time together.
