Tina Santiago-Rodriguez is a Catholic wife and home educating mom by vocation, a licensed physical therapist by education, and a freelance writer and editor by profession. She counts being editor-in-chief of Mustard (a Catholic children's magazine published by Shepherd's Voice Publications) and Home Base (the official newsletter of Catholic Filipino Academy, a Catholic homeschool provider based in the Philippines) among her jobs, but believes that her most important "work" is to be a helpmate to her husband, and to raise her kids to be "Kingdom-Seekers." Despite being the sinful, imperfect people they tend to be, Tina and her husband consider themselves blessed to have been full time lay missionaries for Couples for Christ — their two older kids were born while they were on mission in Timor Leste (or East Timor, as most people call it). Find out more about Tina through her personal blogs: Truly Rich Mom and Teacher Mama Tina.
