Homeschool Blog, Tips, & Stories

I was the worn-out, stressed and busy homeschooler.

Homeschooling wasn't working out like I envisioned. I felt like a slave to the curriculum. Each day, I pushed myself and the kids through the lessons, but ended up feeling like a failure whether we finished or not.

After 6 years of suffering schooling this way, I found new tools that helped me shift my mindset, cut the busywork from our day, and take the reigns of our homeschool, with confidence. Learning became more engaging, more effective, more enjoyable and easier.

At, I come alongside you, not as an expert, but as an experienced friend and homeschooler of over 20 years, to share what I've learned and the tools I've created to help you become a more confident, relaxed and productive homeschooler.
