Let's face it. Homeschooling has taken over your life.

You’ve given up on keeping the house clean and serving healthy meals while you have a houseful of kids to homeschool.

You put yourself at the bottom of your long to-do list because you feel like you have to put everyone else’s needs first.

You’ve spent so much time trying to create the perfect homeschool that you’ve lost your balance.

But homeschool life doesn't have to be that way...

I believe you can homeschool with confidence and still have a happy home. 

You don’t need an advanced teaching degree to homeschool your kids.

It IS possible to get healthy and wholesome meals on the table... every night.

You can keep up with the housework and all your other daily tasks.

The secret? Finding the right balance.

This couldn’t have any better timing! I am so thankful for all of your advice here. We so need rest and a peaceful learning environment in our homeschooling. It has been way too intense and quite miserable for too long around here. Schooling has become a “dirty” word. I see where I have failed but fear not, for I am not a failure! I will be following these steps starting immediately. Many thanks!

Imagine starting your day with a clean, happy home, a healthy breakfast, and kids who are excited about learning.

Give up the overwhelm and find balance.

Homeschool with confidence, knowing that you CAN do it successfully.

Put yourself back on the to-do list and start making small, healthy changes for yourself and for your family.

I’ve been struggling with balancing school, house work, and my work. Your tips are going to help me.

A look at my homeschooling journey:

I started homeschooling when my daughter was three.Yes, I was THAT homeschool mom – so excited to start and convinced my daughter was a genius because she could sound out her letters. I was so focused on creating the perfect homeschool experience I let other things go. The housework suffered. We started to depend on fast food more and more often. I was gaining more weight (and wasn’t skinny, to begin with). Within a few years, I was feeling burnt out, overwhelmed, and wondered if I’d be able to keep up with it all. Something had to change. I wanted to homeschool but not at the expense of the quality of our family life.

I took a hard look at each area that needed an overhaul and began making little changes. I discovered that making small habit and lifestyle adjustments as well as a flexible daily rhythm made a huge difference – our homeschool day became more peaceful, the house was cleaner, and healthier choices came naturally. Simple daily routines and manageable systems helped us create a healthy home and happy homeschool.
