From Renee from Little Homeschool on the Prairie

Obviously, Flourish: Balance forHomeschool Moms has been a big surprise for me. I thought I would just read the book and gleam a few things off of it.  I needed to be inspired and encouraged. I needed to stop and evaluate my time, set some realistic goals, and be content with those unexpected things that come our way…. Thanks Mary Joe Tate for a wonderful book that is full of realistic and practical advice.

Amber from Adventures in Mindful Living

If you are a homeschooling mom who is starting your own business, has your own business now, or if you want to start homeschooling and you work from home then I would say this would be one f the most important books you could read.

Rebekah from There Will Be a $5 Charge for Whining

My goal is to sit back down with the book and really inhale those parts that spoke to me the most. I was so blessed to be able to review this book. It spoke to many things that God has laid upon my own heart…and has given me some valuable tools to address those things that I need to address.

Melanie from finchnwren

In the end, I can say that Flourish:  Balance for Homeschool Moms has been an essential, timely and beloved new tool for me, my family and my life.  Tate enables us to start with the truths of what our lives are; shows us the vision of what each one can be; and equips us for the journey to get there.  If you don’t have or can’t afford a life coach, don’t despair.  Mary Jo Tate’s amazing book can stand in that gap!

Heather from A Nurse’s Wildflowers

Mary Jo walks the reader through this thing called a living crisis management saga and along the way she is helps us pull ourselves out of the disaster we might be in. I love, LOVE what she shares! She has given me a starting point to get my act together.

Rebecca from Raventhreads

This book is definitely worth your time.  I believe that most homeschool moms will find this book to have valuable advice for making sure that your actions are truly aligning with the goals that you have for your children as well as the dreams that you have for your own life.

Martianne from Training Happy Hearts

 Even as someone who has read many help-me-organize-and-thrive books in the past, I found gems of wisdom, tools for discernment and improvement, and most importantly to me, a balance of practical tips, encouragement and wise mentorship in   Flourish: Balance for Homeschool Moms.

Angela from Gallimaufry Grove

Ms. Tate gives you a great deal of vision and hope.  You really can get things done and you really don’t have to live a stressed-out life while you do it.  She puts you in the driver’s seat of your life and time.

Lisa from Farm Fresh Adventures

 As I was reading it, I kept thinking of friends who “totally need to read this”. Some of them aren’t even homeschoolers! That’s the beauty of this book; though primarily geared towards homeschool moms, I really think that you can find value in this book whether homeschooling or not. It’s just a book for MOMS!

Audra from Simply Audra Marie

This book gave me the lift I needed. I’m ready to jump back in and practice life management. I want to do and be what God has called me to do and be. Tools help. Women who have been there help. And God helps. Amen? So, yes, I officially recommend this book especially if your current days are feeling a bit stale or chaotic.
