I’m seeking homeschooling support in Wyoming, but is HomeschoolWyo for Christian families only?

I’m new to homeschooling, how do I choose a curriculum?
First off: pray! The best advice I was given when I first started homeschooling was to give yourself at least 3 years to find out what works for you and your children. Become a student of your children; learn their learning styles, likes and dislikes, struggles and what comes naturally. All of these things will help you wade through the mounds of options for curriculum. Continue to pray and remember: the curriculum is just a guide for you. You are your students best teacher! Make the curriculum work for you, don’t be a slave to it! We've compiled a brief list of curriculum to get you started that you can view here.
How does Homeschool Wyo define "homeschooling"?
