Well, another school year has begun. This is our 12th year of homeschooling, and as many of you know, our early years were quite an adjustment. You can listen to my podcast episode about our beginnings here or read about it in my book.
It has been a really good start for our homeschool. We slowly transitioned from the end of August to the first few weeks of September, with no real “first day” of school. I enjoyed the natural process of just easing into a new routine, rather than a concise stop of summer and start of school!
The mornings are cool, and the afternoons are still a bit warm so we are taking every opportunity to be outdoors while we can. We’ve spent time in our woods and riding bikes and skateboards.
Exciting news! My book, Called Home: Finding Joy in Letting God Lead Your Homeschool has been translated into Spanish and is now available for Kindle! Paperback edition is coming soon!
It was truly a blessing how the whole process happened! I am so grateful for those who believed in the book so much, they volunteered their time to translate and edit the book! God’s people are amazing!
We are also in full blown prayer and preparation for our 2018 Retreat. Early bird registration is now open, so don’t delay in registering! We are filling up quicker than previous years. Secure your spot today!
I am so grateful for the journey I have been on this past decade through homeschooling. It has been about so much more than academics. Homeschooling has provided us a lifestyle for us that is such a blessing, and God has taught our family so much on this journey.
I am also pleased to announce that I will be speaking at the NCHE Thrive Conference in the spring! Our whole family will be heading to Winston- Salem for the event!
I will also be speaking in some other locations in the spring and will be sharing those shortly!
Here are some snippets of life around here this late summer/pre-autumn. Follow along on Instagram to see lots of snippets of life out here on Love’s Farm!

Whether you are thinking about it, in the midst of it, or perhaps running away from it (like I was 12 years ago!), today I want to talk about the calling of homeschool.
How do you know if you are called to homeschool?
What if you don’t want to homeschool, but feel like you should?
What if you want to homeschool, but feel like you shouldn’t?
All of us have had these questions run through our mind if we have ever even considered homeschooling. Today I am sitting down to get real with you and discuss my story to hopefully encourage you to follow the path God has chosen for your family.
Ultimately, it is not about listening to anyone else, but God.
