Peggy Ployhar

Peggy Ployhar’s passion is to serve God wherever He calls and to motivate others to do the same.  The common thread in all of Peggy’s lessons, lectures, writings, and retreats is the truth that God is present in all of life’s circumstances, and believers need to be ready and always on the alert to see how God is uniquely revealing Himself in their lives.

For the Ployhar family, their homeschooling adventure began over 9 years ago when her oldest son was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. Over time, God increased the passion of the Ployhar family to not only homeschool their oldest son, but all of their children and likewise encourage other families they encounter with similar situations to follow in their footsteps.

Peggy is the former MÂCHÉ Special Needs Coordinator and MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) Area Coordinator for Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. She is certified by the American Association of Christian Counselors and, with her training, she has given countless individuals the courage to step out in faith and trust God with the results of their faithful obedience.

Peggy lives in Kenyon, MN, on a hobby farm with her husband Doug, their three children, and an ever increasing menagerie of farm animals.
