About Erika Ahern

Welcome to Verity Ed, where parents are primary! And welcome to our Patreon Page.

My name is Erika Ahern and, along with my husband Todd, and our six children we are building Verity Ed to introduce the world to an articulate, coherent, and joyful family-based education and home culture.

After 15 years of living the classical homeschool life and working with hundreds of homeschooling families, I took the risk of starting and investing in Verity Ed, putting myself -- our family -- out there for the sake of families who want something more than what our culture gives them.

I saw so many young parents in those years who homeschooled because they were running away from institutional schooling: they didn’t want bullying, they didn’t want Common Core, they didn’t want the long hours away from home. But in order to keep going when homeschooling gets tough, you need something to run TOWARD even more. That’s where Verity Ed comes in.

We are giving families the realization that everyone can home school and any parent, no matter what your own upbringing was like, can give their kids the best education, which is classical and centered on the revelation of Jesus Christ.

But we’re giving more than a vision of a true family culture. We are creating:

  • Free videos and podcasts that encourage and educates young parents who want to grow strong families and give them a great classical education
  • Connecting parents who are burning out or feeling embattled to other, like-minded families across the English-speaking world! We already have points of contact in the United Kingdom, where the Catholic Faithful need support from others in raising their kids -- we are building that network today with connections in Oxford, Bedford, and Kent
  • Speaking engagements at conferences and workshops in person to help connect moms to other local moms and build relationships built on the desire to classical educate their children and create a beautiful family culture
  • Writing articles for major Catholic outlets such as the National Catholic Register, Catholic Exchange, and Catholic Lane to make a coherent and charitable case for homeschooling on all levels of Church leadership
  • Webinars for in-depth training for mothers, dads, and students so they are equipped to raise the next generation of saints
  • Social media presence and community for classical homeschoolers and educators who are often isolated physically from one another by distances
  • BOOKS: the classical education world needs the next generation of moms to build on the tremendous pioneer work of Laura Berquist, Stratford Caldecott, and Susan Wise Bauer with in-print booklists, updated tips for state compliance, advice on how to navigate technology; and writing books to bring Catholic families into the 2020’s means I depend on YOU for income

We want Verity Ed to be amazing, and as you know “you get what you pay for.” That means, if you do it on the cheap, it’ll be cheap. If you invest in it, it will be great. I want to reach 10,000 families.

Please consider supporting us. If you scroll down the Patreon page, you will see the wonderful free thank-you gifts at each level.

Even for just $1 per month, you will make a huge difference. Please give only what you can comfortably, so if that means $5 per month and Verity Ed is just 1% of your annual giving, THANK YOU! Every bit helps me to:

  • Spend more time writing, filming, and producing content for you and so many others
  • Pay a great video production crew and editor
  • Invest in equipment, services, and social media outreach to bring high quality content to tens of thousands
  • Fund pro bono training for diocesan leaders, families, and priests in how to support homeschooling families and why classical education is the turnaround solution for Catholic education

Through your support, Verity Ed can continue to support you and so many families around the world!
