  • Our Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum – Most homeschool mom’s like to share their curriculum choices before starting the homeschool year, which I did on YouTube. However I was reluctant to share our final plans here. I guess I was worried that I wouldn’t get it all done. Now that we finished up our homeschooling year and are well into grade one. I thought I should share what we used. What worked and what didn’t.
  • Raising Bookworms: What We Read – Nearly every night Zakari and I turn the lights off in his bedroom. He cuddles with his big, brown stuff toy dog and covers himself with his blue comforter. I sit or lay next to his bed and by flashlight read to him what he affectionately refers to as “Read Chapters”.
  • 90+ Ideas for the Glenn Doman Inspired Reading Program – Teaching my boys to read early(Wes as a preschooler and Zakari as a baby)has been one of the highlights in my parenting career. Glenn Doman called mothers who used the Doman Method “professional mothers”. In a world that undervalues mothers, especially stay at home moms, this is very empowering.
  • Chapter Books For Boys With Autism – “Best Chapter Books For Boys With Autism”
    Anyone that has been reading me for even a short time knows I love book sales! I love thrift store books. Amazon is also another love of mine. But now that I have turned my youngest into a bookworm, the need to collect books and grow our library is even stronger. Our GoodReads “”What to Read”” shelves is growing & growing by the day. However, now I’m on a specific mission, to collect books from particular series. Yes I will still be buying books that are not part of a series. But my main focus is completing several series we are reading.

  • Five Things I Want To Change In Our Homeschool This Year – Homeschooling can be stressful if you spend your time worried about the small things and are unwilling to change things up.
  • Top 5 Homeschooling Mistakes – The most common mistakes of homeschooling might not be what you would first think; comparing to other, thinking you need a homeschool room, holding onto things that aren’t working.
  • Homeschool Art Supplies – Finding art supplies for your littles can be a daunting task, here are a few things that I suggest you have on hand at all times!
  • Math Games – Math doesn’t have to be the dry boring subject you might think of it as, you can make it fun with games! Here are some awesome math board games, dice games, and other math games!

  • Tips for the Frustrated Parent and Teacher – As a piano teacher, I don’t usually get very frustrated with my students because they are not my children. I can only do so much to convince them to practice or take my advice and I know that ultimately their parents will have the most influence on their daily habits. However, it is a different thing altogether when I am teaching my 5 year old daughter on the piano.
  • Homeschool Hesitations – As an active homeschooler that maintains relationships with many, many non-homeschoolers, I have found that I hesitate – a lot. I hesitate to speak when I have a different perspective. I hesitate to try things that seem right to me, but not exactly socially celebrated. Even though I often know what I think and desire for my family, I still find myself hesitating. The sad truth is that it’s probably because I’m afraid of what others will think or disagree with. Considering how opinionated I am, I’m sure that sounds foolish. And in reality it is. Which is why I’m creating this series.

  • Gratitude is the Best Attitude – Writing in my Gratitude Journal has actually turned out to be one of my favorite hobbies. Within the pages I write notes on my current bible study along with a 100% positive record of my day. Studying God’s word daily has been the basis for peace of mind and strength to endure all life brings my way.
  • YOU. ARE. BEAUTIFUL. – In hearing my toddler proudly proclaim that she was beautiful because her father said so, I was reminded of how God views us. As His children we are fearfully and wonderfully made with a carefully constructed purpose. Let these thoughts remind you that you are truly beautiful to the Most High God.

  • Benefits of Homeschooling – More and more people are choosing to homeschool their children these days because they have discovered the benefits of homeschooling. When I consider the benefits of homeschooling, I also see the reasons why I homeschool.
  • Challenges of Homeschooling – Although homeschooling is the best form of education for children and is immensely beneficial for family relationships, it is not without its challenges. The challenges I want to address today can be minimized with the strategies presented in this post.

  • How to get a Driver’s License for a Homeschooler in Georgia – Got a soon-to-be-driving teen in your house? If you’re like me, you may need some guidance in figuring out what your child needs to know, do and have in order to get their license. This is especially important and confusing if you are homeschooling your teen. It can be overwhelming. I’ve tried to gather all things new-teen driver related into one post for our local readers.
  • Why we Stopped Homeschooling Year Round – A while back, I wrote an article about how we homeschooled year round and loved it. In fact, that was 4 years ago. Since then, many things have changed.
  • Printable Scripture Writing Plan for Teens: Grace – About a month ago, I shared with you all that I have been enjoying scripture writing to stay in the Word. My kids wanted to follow suit and so I created the first in our series of scripture writing for teens and tweens. This month, I ask my older kids what they wanted the scriptures to be about and they suggested Grace. I though that was a great idea, so I’ve spend the better part of today searching for verses. It took a bit, but I came up with enough for this scripture writing plan.
