Homeschooling doesn’t have to be overwhelming and stressful. Often, our own expectations and the perceived expectations of others keep us from homeschooling in a way that fits our unique personalities and those of our family.
The resources found on this page are here to guide you toward a gentle way of homeschooling that allows you the time to relax and your children the space to become lifelong learners!
As a 17 year veteran of homeschooling, I know how important it is to have a community of homeschooling moms to learn from. It is my prayer that the information you find here is helpful without being overwhelming. Please remember, what you read here are the result of much prayer and guidance from God and my husband. They are unique to our family, and are not meant to be a set of homeschooling rules you must employ to be successful. As with everything, seek the Lord as to what His vision is for YOUR family.
The best book for homeschooling multiple ages!
