Michelle Thomas is a Christ follower, wife to Trevor, and a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to Caleb, Jesse, Caroline, and Noah. Married in 1998, Michelle and Trevor found themselves renting a small apartment and coping with $25,000 in debt. They developed a budget and began paying off their debts. Meanwhile, they heard God’s call on their lives never to go into debt again—for anything.
They saved money and built their home debt free over the course of a few years, have since paid cash for several used vehicles, and now are investing a significant portion of their income into the Christian education of their children.
Trevor teaches high school mathematics in Gainesville, Georgia. In his spare time, he maintains his website (TrevorGrantThomas.com) where he provides Christian commentary and information. His columns have appeared in such publications as American Thinker, Center for a Just Society, Real Clear Religion, Real Clear History, Real Clear Science, U.S. Action News, as well as The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and The Gainesville Times.
In her spare time, Michelle writes for her blog, KingdomCrossing.com, handles the finances for their church, works part time from home for Crown Financial Ministries, edits all of Trevor’s columns, and serves on the boards of Gainesville Homeschool Academy and Legacy Homeschool Academy. She was campaign manager for her uncle’s campaign for U.S. Congress in 2012 and spearheaded the birth of Legacy Homeschool Academy in 2013.
Michelle graduated from North Georgia College in 1995 with a B.S. in sociology. Trevor’s degrees include a B.S. in physics and an M.Ed. in mathematics education from North Georgia College, as well as an Ed.S. in mathematics education from the University of Georgia.
