Dan and Shawn live in Clinton, Indiana, with their four children, Danny (15), Abbie (13), Noah (12), and Emily (10) and have been homeschooling for over 13 years, since their oldest was first ready for preschool learning. The Kings believe that the home is the best place to learn a love for God and a love for the Bible, as well as to nurture Godly character qualities in their children.
Dan is the pastor of Calvary Baptist Church and enjoys working with the youth in the community. Shawn and the children are always close at hand, and the family stays tightly knit by serving, playing, and learning together as much as possible. Homeschool co-op classes, field trips, church youth group activities, hiking, fishing, 4H programs, and a small home business all provide just the right amount of family fun.
Dan and Shawn have actively been involved in the homeschool community and count it a privilege to serve as Board members for IAHE.
