John Van Hecke

John Van Hecke, Alicia's husband, is a graduate of a college-prep high school with an excellent academic reputation and also received his B.A. in Liberal Arts from Thomas Aquinas College. His parents are involved in Catholic radio and his brother Michael is president of the Catholic Textbook Project. John went on to receive a degree in Electrical Engineering, from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. He works as an electrical engineer, designing touch screen monitors. An important part of his daily routine is prayer time and story time with the children before bed. They have enjoyed reading Greek Myths, the Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, tales of adventure, saint stories and lots of other good reading. John and Alicia have been home-educating their six children (ages 14, 12, 10, 8, 6 and 4) since birth. They reside in Wisconsin.
