Sitting with a cup of coffee in hand, I told my dad my husband and I planned to homeschool my sons with my husband.
My hair was dark brown, My oldest was jumping on the sofa and my second son was getting ready for another surgery.
Dad looked me straight in the eyes, “Bekki, you’re crazy and you’re setting yourself up for failure.”
How was I possibly going to squeeze in designing personalized educational plans, choosing curriculum, mapping out lesson plans AND teaching multiple kids on multiple levels…
…when each of those things was also a full-time job?
Turns out, we were both right.
I couldn’t do it all and many times I failed, but the Lord met me every step of the way. In the presence of successful homeschooling moms I learned to:
Now that my hair looks like angles ran their fingers through my locks and added glitter, my oldest sons are in college, and my younger sons are gearing up for high school or college themselves, my heart is focused on giving back.

This is where we will run into a safe circle, link arms and discuss what’s going on in the game right now.
For you, for me, and the sisters to our right and left.
It’s like a private club, only you won’t have to wear jewels and gossip and drama is NOT be tolerated.
Both sessions will vary from month to month and will cover topics like:

“Thanks, Bekki! I’m saving this in my resources for later!”-Elisabeth
Can’t wait to see you inside! Because I still remember panicking when I began homeschooling…
Thank goodness, I found a small group of homeschool moms to come alongside and guide me!
About 20 years ago, my husband tricked me into homeschooling.
I was completely against the idea and thought the few homeschoolers I knew were weird.
I was convinced I could not educate my own kids either. He didn’t care. Well, he cared. He just knew we were supposed to do it. He asked me to try it for one year. “If it’s terrible, horrible, no good, and very bad then we can quit.”
That was almost two decades ago.
Homeschooling is hard.
Had I known that from the beginning I might have quit before I figured out I could actually do it.
Let’s stop trying to be perfect homeschoolers and realize that we need each other on this crazy journey.

But ALWAYS with the character of our kids as our primary goal.
This is a positive, encouraging and loving group. Although we laugh a lot, meanness, scorning, and overall yucky behavior is not tolerated. Come join us!
