Norm Wakefield's Biography for Homeschool Audiences

Norm Wakefield has spoken at Homeschool Conferences as a keynote and featured speaker since 1992. Having been a pastor for 10 years, he has a shepherd’s heart and a vision to be an instrument in God’s hands to turn the hearts of men to Him and to their wives and children. Norm’s messages build up the body of Christ by giving practical, biblical teaching in how to apply the gospel to the most important relationships and the circumstances of life that all home educators face. You’ll find Norm’s messages to be powerfully life-changing because all are based soundly on the gospel with a reliance on the Holy Spirit to give understanding and application to his listeners, whether men, women, or young people. 
On the personal side, Norm and Alma have been married for 45 years, have four children, and seventeen grandchildren. They have experience with children with special needs as well since their daughter, Amanda, was born with Down Syndrome. 
Norm started the Spirit of Elijah Ministries International in 1997 and is the Executive Director. He has served the homeschooling community faithfully and brings experience, inspiration, spiritual depth, and practical, simple, profound insight into the Scriptures to his audiences.
