Rebecca Farris, the Well Planned Gal, founded Home Educating
Family Association, LLC. (HEDUA) in 2007.
As C.E.O. of Home Educating Family Association, Rebecca has inspired and supported thousands of homeschool moms each year through her speaking, talk show, daily planners, magazines, and online resources.
Each year Rebecca uses her platform as the Well Planned Gal to share her inspirational story of grace. Challenging women to discover the unique journey God has for them, Rebecca mentors women in their work, marriage, parenting adventures, and life.
Rebecca’s personal journey and day-to-day life can be found in the pages of Family Magazine, on wellplannedgal.com, and through social media.

With a strong desire to see women equipped to raise children and engage the culture, Rebecca created and published Family Magazine in 2007. Joining theologically strong voices such as Ravi Zacharias and Elisabeth Elliott with the experiential voices of veteran homeschooling moms and dads, Family Magazine offers a strong mentoring influence for today’s home educating families.

In 2009, Rebecca designed and authored the number one selling product in homeschooling: The Well Planned Day, Family Homeschool Planner. Since then, Rebecca has expanded her line of planning and organizational tools to include planners, calendars, lesson plans, and software.

In 2012, Rebecca launched the first homeschooling talk show, Life Plus Homeschooling, filming hundreds of episodes and interviewing a variety of guests from educational experts and homeschool bloggers to politicians and former heads of state.
With her extensive background in software design and programming, Rebecca created the first management program with homeschool moms in mind. Tracking everything from chores to lesson plans, My Well Planned Day™ is quickly becoming homeschooling’s most innovative product.
// Continuing to Grow //
Always the innovator, Rebecca continues to assess the ever-evolving needs of the homeschooling community. Launched in 2016, Well Planned Lessons offers homeschool families a simple, flexible lesson plan option for preschool through twelfth grade. Well Planned Start joined the product line-up in 2017, providing parents with an interactive grade-level assessment.
Even as these products join the ever-growing line of Well Planned Gal resources, Rebecca and her staff continue to look to the future, anticipating growth in the homeschooling community and creating innovative, original products to meet the needs of both new and veteran homeschool families.
