Ten Things I Want You to Know About Homeschooling • Ep 68


This episode is for homeschoolers and non-homeschoolers.

Today I am chatting about the things I really want you to know about homeschooling. For the past twelve school years, homeschooling has really evolved in my life from something I ran from to something I couldn’t imagine not doing. I am an advocate for homeschooling and am passionate about encouraging others to see it in a light that isn’t quite as complicated as it seems.

Join me today to hear all the ins and outs, the good, bad and ugly, and why we continue on this journey that often has taught us about so much more than academics.

Episode Highlights

•It won’t save your children

•I believe it is best for MY family. What about yours?

•It isn’t picture perfect and it is not supposed to be.  We are discipling our children not staging a photo

•Academics is merely a portion of the big picture

•You don’t have to have a teaching degree

•Your children will not be socialized normally and thats a GOOD thing –

•The hard days are necessary

•You aren’t equipped to homeschool 

•It will cost you. Every hour you put into it has an eternal investment beyond compare.

Jesus is Enough

This summer, I am hosting a women’s retreat in Gettysburg, PA. In a world of excess, we are going to focus on that fact that Jesus is enough. The world will tell you YOU are enough. But truly, HE is enough. He is all we need. We don’t rely on ourselves, or earthly comforts, but on Him alone.  I have lived with it all stripped away, and I have seen that yes, Jesus is enough. In fact, Jesus is MORE than enough.

Early Bird Registration is Open! Join us for this life changing and life-giving event. You will spend two days with other sisters in Christ, tired of what the world offers, and ready to live the life that HE offers.

Being Consistent in Your Homeschool: When You Are Really A Fly-By-The-Seat-of-Your-Pants-Mama!

A Consistent Homeschool

Podcast Consistent homeschool

Are you trying to keep it consistent when you are really a fly-by-the-seat-of-your- pants mama?
By nature, I am not consistent. I am more of a free spirit.I get an idea and want to run with it, and then a few weeks later, it often gets replaced with another new idea! Yet, I know homeschool requires a level of consistency so that we keep order.
Come and listen in as I talk about how God has transformed me in this area. There is nothing I have done on my own, but He works when I ask Him for guidance!
We will also talk about how we can have those unplanned days too, as we balance consistency with spontaneity for our kids and our homeschools!
