This episode was recorded forever ago and I just couldn’t get it fit in. I figured with 2021 on the horizon and many families wondering HOW they can help in the new year now was a perfect time. I have many friends who have done foster care and have even adopted from foster care. Foster parents are some of the BEST people I know. It is a true ministry that is greatly needed today.  In this episode we talk about the legality of foste...

Today’s episode is a Fess Up Friday episode and I want to share with you one big takeaway. Amy and I talk about second generation homeschooling and how much things have changed from when she was homeschooled to now.  I can see this. And not all of the changes are for the positive. I am realizing after 2020 which I talked some about in my lessons learned episode that we need to go back to the basics a bit. Simpler times. It will mak...

As I shared in my Q and A episode with Davonne I get questions ALL the time about my family, my homeschool, our traditions, and really everything.  So, I thought it would be fun to answer some basic questions on holidays, our traditions, and what our family likes most about the holidays.

Kim Santee and I are talking about self-care. She says self-care for her is “creating a life I don’t need to escape from” and guys that speak volumes. What kind of life are you creating? I have had the life that I needed to escape from and it is not fun. We can do better. And it starts by creating time for YOU. No matter how small or mundane it may seem. You know what your body needs, and you can’t pour from an empty cup. We also c...

This will air after the election, however, I am recording this in October. Before the election. Regardless of how this election turns out, my hope is not in any candidate. It is in the Lord. That is one reason I am airing this now instead of at the end of the year. I want to share some lessons learned from this craziness that has been 2020. Who our hope is really in, how we can move forward and get back to what the world really nee...

    In today's episode, I am chatting with my good friend Davonne Parks about homeschooling different personalities.

    I get asked fairly often how I work and homeschool. It's a topic that I haven't tackled a whole lot on the blog or podcast because honestly, I like to keep them separate. BUT, I know that many of you right now are struggling with working and homeschooling, so I wanted to bring my friend Davonne Parks (who works outside the home) on the podcast so we can tackle this topic together. Whether you work from home, outside the hom...

    So, I hope you guys are enjoying this series. Today it is coming to an end with the method I most wanted to use when I first began homeschooling and that is the Charlotte Mason method. I LOVE so many of Charlotte’s ideas to education and have read books about this method but have never been able to fully implement it into our homeschool. So, I was super excited to chat with this week's guest Amy Fischer about putting it into ac...

    Today I am talking with Dianna Kennedy about the classical method of homeschooling and NO this is not all about CC.  I share in this episode that the only experience I had with Classical education was our local CC group. Dianna really breaks down the idea of classical conversation and I thoroughly enjoyed learning about it from her.

    Today we are talking with Charlene Hess about the relaxed/digital method of homeschooling. I wasn’t really sure what this would entail before our chat but can honestly say I learned a LOT from Charlene. We may be slightly relaxed/digital. Who knows. We are all over the place. 

    Charlene and I chat about the all in one style of homeschooling, term scheduling, family schooling online, and what our end goal for homeschooling really nee...

    Today we are kicking off a super fun series all about homeschool methods. I introduced this series a couple of days ago with my favorite homeschool method. In this episode, we talk about unit studies with second-generation homeschooler Heather Haupt.

    We chat about how you incorporate multiple subjects around one thing by utilizing unit studies. We have dabbled in Unit Studies a few times through the years and are using them fully t...

    Because so many people are homeschooling right now, and because sometimes even after a year or two (or five) of homeschooling you change your method up a bit I wanted to do a series all about the different methods of homeschooling. So, for the month of September, I have SIX episodes all about the homeschool methods.

    Today I am peeling back the curtain on a day in the life of MY Homeschool. We are eclectic homeschoolers. What does t...

    Today’s Fess Up Friday interview is with Monica Swanson. I have been a long time listener of Monica's podcast and was SO excited to chat with her today about her homeschool joys, struggles and fears.

    I think many of us, as we begin new homeschool years have these BIG plans, and we don't allow ourselves a lot of flexibility, or we are set in our ways and aren't willing to adjust things to better serve the needs of our family. These mistakes, and a few other things I want to share, can make our kids HATE homeschooling. I am sharing what I have learned about how we can get our kids to hate homeschooling in this episode.
