Hal & Melanie Young

Hal and Melanie Young, authors of the Christian Small Publishers 2011 Book of the Year, Raising Real Men: Surviving, Teaching and Appreciating Boys (available from Great Waters Press at RaisingRealMen.com), are parents of six real boys and two real girls. They have published articles with Homeschooling Today, Homeschool Digest, TEACH, Homeschool Enrichment and The Old Schoolhouse. Hal and Melanie have made more than fifty media appearances in venues as wide ranging as the Bob Dutko Show to CBS Evening News with Dan Rather. They routinely draw standing room only crowds with their mix of uniquely entertaining cross-banter and practical, powerful scriptural principles. Recently, Hal and Melanie have glorified the Lord through Hal successfully fighting stage IV cancer and through a life-threatening heart condition in their youngest. Despite it all, the Youngs live in noisy familial bliss in NC. Hal and Melanie served on the board of NCHE for over fourteen years, including three years as president for Hal.
