Today I am talking about two of my favorite things- homeschooling and keeping it simple! Even though I am addressing new homeschoolers, these are things ALL homeschoolers need to be reminded of and can benefit from!
In a world that is constantly trying to distract us, it so important, especially as new homeschoolers, to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus so we know when to weed out the things that aren’t truly important.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, as a new homeschooler or seasoned homeschooler, join me as I address curriculum, schedules, real life learning, and avoiding the comparison trap. I am discussing how to set a solid foundation from the beginning to make teaching easier down the road. Mostly, I hope to remind all homeschoolers to seek God first in all they do!
My new book Called Home is just $0.99 today for Kindle!
Many of you know I started writing ebooks way back when I thought no one would actually read them. 😉 Fast forward several years, and not only were people reading them, but two of them remained best-sellers at Amazon for quite some time.
The response to the original Called Home was overwhelming. So many women wrote to tell me it blessed them or changed their homeschool. Knowing that this book was having an impact, I wanted to make sure it was done just right.
Over the years, I have been wanting to take that little book I wrote from my heart and perfect it a bit. God put an amazing editor in my path last year when I wrote Real Homeschool, and she once again made this project come true! For all of those who wrote my about the typos, they’re fixed! (keepin’ it real, as always folks!)
This latest edition not only has been edited, revised, and updated, I have expanded it to include a journal section. Many, many ladies have written me or talked to me at homeschool conventions and told me that they have used the book in a group setting. Now there are some places for you to journal thoughts and discuss, or just to have for your own personal use.
I have also revised the 31 verses to pray for your homeschool by including the verse reference only, with ample writing space following. It is my desire for women to be in the Word on their own and let God teach them above all. By doing this, it allows the reader to look up the verse themselves in a translation of choice and then either copy it into the journal or write thoughts about what the Lord is teaching through each verse.
It is my desire to point others solely to Him. I pray this book will do just that, not only in your homeschool but in life.

Over the years, I have made many plans in our homeschool. Yet, we have learned that the most important lessons were never written in a plan book.
Preparing children for life by immersing them in real life every day has been a blessing which has taught them life skills, character traits, and most importantly spiritual lessons.
Whether you homeschool or not, equipping children for real life and equipping them spiritually are as necessary as any textbook.
