Summer is starting to wind down…and for most of us, that means homeschooling is starting to pick back up!

You might be trying to figure out curriculum for this year, making lists and schedules, and trying to figure out how to fit all the activities into your day.

You might even be feeling a little overwhelmed that the school year is about to begin again already!

Well I’ve got some exciting news for you today. I want to introduce you to the 2016 Encouragement for the Homeschool Mom Online conference!

Three Things a Homeschool Mom Needs |

3 Things a Homeschool Mom Needs

Over the 17 years of homeschooling, I have learned a few things about my own needs. I would have loved it if a more experienced homeschool mom would have shared these things with me, but atlas, I figured it out and have been faithful to ensure that I get them.


We go through so many changes as a family, especially one who are together every day of the week for all waking hours of the day.

It is sometimes hard to really understand that there are other families going through what we are experiencing and maybe have solutions to our daily problems.

Support is so important to keeping joy in a homeschool mom! Facebook is full of great support groups, and if you homeschool the Charlotte Mason way, I would LOVE to invite you to my group for support with this method of education.


We, homeschool moms, get in the trenches everyday, often times ignoring the heart issues we have ourselves or maybe not even knowing how to help ourselves out of them.

This is where encouragement is so important for us, homeschooling moms.

We need to heart the lessons that others before us have learned and listen to their hearts for our own benefits! This is why I’m so excited to be part of the 2016 Encouragement for the Homeschool Mom Online conference!


Homeschool moms have a hard time escaping the noisy. This is why it is so important to create routines that allow for the mom to have quiet times when they need them the most.

Training our children to develop habits for their own quiet times, can be powerful for a mom. I love having my quiet time in the morning, when everyone is still in bed and nature is the only sound I hear. It energizes me for the day ahead!
