Ray Reish is the homeschooling father of seven children, ages sixteen to thirty-one. He and his wife own and operate a homeschooling publishing company and cottage class provider, Character Ink (formerly Training for Triumph); Christian parenting ministry/seminar, “Raising Kids With Character”; and “Character Ink” blog. Additionally, the couple has written a Christian parenting book titled, The Well-Trained Heart. They have graduated six students who are involved in occupations, ministries, and marriages that exemplify the relational, character-based parenting and homeschooling approach that they were raised with.
Ray does not call himself the school “principal,” but prefers for his primary title (after DAD!) to be “homeschool janitor,” teaching young fathers to be servant leaders in their homeschools. Ray and his family live in Fort Wayne, Indiana where Ray, a CPA, works as a Materials Manager in a local plant, operates Character Ink, plays basketball with his four sons, ballroom dances with his wife, talks “forever” with his three adult daughters, and helps homeschoolers and parents however he can.
