Samantha Speir

Samantha grew up in the DFW area.  She received a BFA in Musical Theatre from Sam Houston State University, married her husband Chad, and then joyfully welcomed their son.  Samantha has always had a passion for worship through the arts and for working with children.  Her favorite place to be is outdoors enjoying nature and God’s beautiful creatures.  The Cedar House is a perfect combination of all her favorite things, and Samantha is deeply grateful to her friend Abby for her courage in following her dreams and for sharing The Cedar House with the home school community in Texas.
