Alpha Omega Publications® is pleased to recognize Janelle Ortiz of Phoenix, Arizona, as AOP's September 2009 Homeschool Parent of the Month. In recognition of her homeschooling efforts, Janelle will receive a $50 AOP gift certificate that's good toward the purchase of Switched-On Schoolhouse®, LIFEPAC®, Horizons, or The Weaver Curriculum®.

A busy pastor's wife and homeschool mom to three daughters, Janelle also makes time to help others by offering her assistance and advice to new homeschooling families. As a caring mentor, Janelle not only helps with providing homeschooling materials and curriculum, but she also goes one step further by following up to troubleshoot any homeschool problem areas.

One homeschool mom she has helped recently said, "I am still homeschooling today because of Janelle. It would have been very hard for me without Janelle's help. Thank you, Lord, for people like Janelle who help pastor a church and children's ministry and also always go the extra mile!"

For her loving example of what it means to be a giving homeschooling mom, Alpha Omega Publications honors Janelle Ortiz as AOP's September Homeschool Parent of the Month!
