You have truly blessed me by stopping by to visit. It is my prayer that you will find inspiration, encouragement, and answers to your questions about being a homeschool mom within these pages. I’m sure you’d like to know a little more about me and my HOME Writer blog; otherwise, you wouldn’t have clicked over to this page. Let’s see — where to start…
- Homeschool Mom: While my homeschooling methods may look different than your homeschooling methods, one thing is for sure–it’s not easy at times! Teaching one child or five (or more!), teaching algebra and phonics at the same time, nursing a baby during a history lesson, unit studies, co-op classes, school-on-the-road … it’s all just another day. From teaching them to walk to teaching them to drive and beyond– after 23+ years of homeschooling (and not quite finished yet) I’ve picked up a few tips along the way and can’t wait to share them with you! Yes, you can homeschool!
- Home Cook: You won’t find Food Network Star recipes here, but you will find some delicious stuff! Tips on organizing menus and recipes, adapting recipes, and creative ways to use leftovers are appreciated by everyone, including busy homeschool moms. If you have picky eaters, like I do, you may find just what you’re looking for in the home cooking section.
- Home Manager: Being a mom is the best job in the world. It can also be the hardest. We struggle to understand why our children do what they do, and then our hearts melt when they wrap their arms around us and whisper, “I love you, Mom.” Keeping our homes running smoothly is another challenge most of us face. The kids need you; your husband needs you; you just need a nap! You will find encouragement among these pages. Besides homeschooling tips, recipes and household organization ideas, you’ll also find inspiration from God’s Word. For many of us, there would be no homeschooling, no home life, and no family if not for the saving grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
- Home Business Owner: Many homeschooling families manage to scrape by on one income. But sometimes a little extra is a big help. There are so many opportunities out there for moms to earn income while staying at home. You can find out about some of those opportunities in the Home Business section, or you can visit my business site to get an idea of how I function as a virtual assistant.
