The struggle is real and I get it!!  Because of this, I have found some apps that can save/make you money.

Finding Mom Time

As a mom, it is natural to put our needs last. Finding time for self-care (spiritual, physical, emotional) is so important and yet it can be such a struggle as a homeschooling mom, especially a single homeschooling mom! So, I want to share 10 ways to find some mom time and pour back into yourself.



Charlotte Mason was a classical English educator in England at the turn of the twentieth century. She proposed to base the education of children upon a wide and liberal curriculum.

The Charlotte Mason Method(CM) is based on Charlotte’s firm belief that a child is a person and we must educate that whole person, not just his mind. So a Charlotte Mason education is three-pronged: in her words, “Education is an Atmosphere, a Discipline, a Life.


Morning Time Routine


The first time I heard the word strewing I honestly thought it was a word made up by the homeschooling community. Turns out it’s been around for a long time. It comes from the Old English word “strewian” and literally means “to scatter”.  While researching this strewing idea, I found this word is most associated with unschooling.

Character Building and a Freebie!

There are many reasons why families choose to homeschool. My reason for homeschooling is spelled out in my homeschooling mission which is:

“To raise well-read, godly adults who use their lives to bring God glory and honor in all that they do by learning to be diligent in all of their duties to God, family, and their country.

Who look to God and His Word for direction in every area of their lives, having Biblical wisdom to make God-honoring decisions, and who use their God-given talents to serve the One who blessed them with those talents.

Who will remember to always be thankful for the One who died for them!”

And an integral part of this mission is character building.

Increase Your Productivity with These 5 Simple Tips

I’m a single mom who works away from home and homeschools my children.  My time is PRECIOUS! I have had to be ruthless about cutting some things out that were just time-sucking my day away. When I first returned to work, I would come home, get a snack, and watch an episode (or five) on Netflix. I reasoned that I had been at work all day so I deserve a break before switching hats for my next task.


A Narnia Giveaway!

I am so incredibly excited to be a part of this Narnia Giveaway. The Chronicles of Narnia Series is one of our all-time favorites in this house.

8 Valentine’s Day Resources for Your Tech-Savvy Child

I have one child who will look for any reason to get on his laptop, and I don’t mean just to play video games. When we read aloud he wants to look up new words or the city/state/country of the setting. While doing our Math notebooking he has looked up Math vocabulary and how-to videos. He has requested and completed the Hour of Code on Khan and wants more like it, but more challenging. So, for all the moms out there with children like my son (and not) here are 8 Valentine’s Day resources for your tech-savvy child.
