The first and most important thing I can tell you is that I am a Jesus follower! I strongly believe that the existence of coffee and chocolate is undeniable proof of a loving God. Just think about that for a minute.
It may surprise you to know that I spent 4 years in the Army Nurse Corps and after that I worked for a number of years in the largest Emergency Room in Colorado as an RN.
What do I do now? I have been married for 12 wonderful years to a really good looking guy, and I have the privilege to stay at home with our three girls. They are currently 7, 5, and 3. The summer of 2019 will mark 2 years that I have been homeschooling and it has been a wild ride!
I had no plans to ever be a homeschooling mom. I thought I’d eventually be off to work again once my kids were all school age…but God had something different for us and it has been so much better than I could have planned myself!
I started this blog because I found that so many people were overly impressed when I told them I pulled my oldest daughter from public school and had started homeschooling. People even seemed to get uncomfortable as they listed to me all the reasons they could not homeschool – patience, time, money, etc.
I didn’t care if they homeschooled or not! I had just mentioned what my family is doing. I began to notice in all of these comments that there was some kind of understanding that homeschooling was a better option – but so terrifying that they could not imagine taking such a leap.
I am passionate about showing people that homeschooling is not easy, but it is also not as complicated as many might imagine. There are so many resources out there now to make it possible! Sometimes it is actually an overwhelming amount of resources.
I want to simplify a lot of the noise around homeschooling and help you get on your feet with your homeschool and encourage you on your journey!
