Mary James lives in Bastrop and is the mother of eight children. She began home schooling in 1989 and expects to be home schooling for many years to come. In 1999 Mary founded Smoothing the Way, a nonprofit organization that seeks to meet the needs of new home schoolers. In addition to serving as president of Smoothing the Way, Mary serves on the Texas Home School Coalition Board of Directors and continues her
popular speaking ministry at several home school conferences each year.
