About Us


The Braun Family
























Steve & Karen Braun have been devout Christians for over 20 years. They are the proud parents of six children, Kristin, Jason, Joshua, Katherine, Elizabeth, and Elaina, whom they homeschool. Their marriage and family life is a "work in progress" like everyone else's. They do not claim to be perfect (not even close!) or to have cornered the truth. Rather, they believe God has called them to challenge and encourage families in their faith and efforts to raise godly children. Their goal is to build God's kingdom one person and one family at a time.


Steve Braun is the creator and main speaker for Civil War Dads. He is an amateur Civil War historian and enjoys Civil War reenacting as a Union infantry private in honor of his great-great-grandfather, William Fletcher Hughey, who served in the 73rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry and the 19th Veteran Reserve Corps. Steve is the founder and president of Liberty Financial Planning where he works as a "fee-only" financial adviser. He is also a writer, teacher, and conference speaker on various family and financial topics (see Liberty Family Resources for more details). Steve holds a BA and an MBA, with Honors, from the University of Michigan.  Visit Steve's financial blog devoted to helping families with their personal finances.
