Homeschooling with Confidence
This is a digital download in pdf format.
My boys LOVE when we lose power. Even though they are all taller than I am, they turn into overgrown 2-year-olds when the lights go out.
- Drinking water from our storage containers
- Cooking on the grill, or in the fireplace
- And Hide and Go seek on steroids.
The boys may love stumbling around in the dark, but not me. I need a light. A bright one.
That’s what I hope this book is for you.
- A guide
- A starting place
- A light
Homeschooling can be scary enough. In the dark, without a handy flashlight it can be downright terrifying.
Don’t worry, I'm here to help you. I’ve already scouted the area, planned a few things to help you through and flushed out the things hiding in the dark.

"Surprisingly, the idea of setting written goals made me stop to think about how I am raising my kids. Sometimes, my default way of interacting with them is not the best thing for them. Often, I know this in my mind at the time, but I don't always know what to do about it. Being able to write my homeschooling goals made me realize that I am motivated to homeschool my kiddos for so many other reasons beyond academics and what others determine as success. I find I am able to be a better listener and more patient with my boys because I can see the big picture now. Thank you for giving me perspective and helping me to embrace and enjoy these young years now!"

This is a homeschooling guide to help you with your homeschooling journey. Sure, there are many activities you can complete with your children included, but the real meat of this ebook is that it’s your master toolbox of tricks you can begin to use immediately to impact you and your children today.
This ebook may be just the trick to pull you out of a slump, steer you in the right direction, motivate you to keep going, or just let you know you are not alone in this homeschool journey.
When you are confused, frustrated, or ready to quit I’ll be there by your side. I’ve been there.
This is a living book.
It’s meant to be printed, scribbled in and on, or dog-eared. You might read it all at once, or in between putting your toddler to bed and tutoring your 12-year old in math. If you happen to spill your coffee all over it, don’t cry.
It’s an ebook, so you simply print another copy.

I'm a lover of Jesus, a blessed wife, and the happy homeschooling mom of FIVE amazing sons.
(It's crazier than it sounds)
I don't believe in "one-size fits all" homeschool. Honestly I don't believe homeschool is for every family.
Different ways we've educated our five boys over 20 years:
- Public school
- co-op school
- Sharing curriculum with friends
- Online public school
- Charter School
- Design and create own curriculum
- Community college
I've been homeschooling for 20 years and mentoring homeschool moms for over 10 years now.
