006 John Wilkerson


Meet John Wilkerson

John Wilkerson has been married to Lisa for 16 years and together they have 7 children. Their oldest has “graduated” from homeschooling and the other 6 continue to keep them very busy.

John loves gadgets and other geeky things (like Star Wars, Doctor Who, and bacon) and sometimes wishes he could homeschool on the holodeck of the Enterprise.

In the spaces between working full-time, being a husband and father, trying to serve God, and fixing stuff around the house John tries to find time for his hobbies: podcasting, blogging, social media, backyard astronomy, and coaching soccer.
