||CleanS4E6: JUST a Homeschool Mom||It never ceases to amaze me how we view ourselves through the lens of the labels affixed to us. Over time, perhaps a combination of repetition and acceptance, we limit the scope of who we are. We begin to believe that how we are viewed and described or what we DO defines us. And while [...]||8/8/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E5: My Biggest Homeschool Struggle||Have you noticed that people don’t like to talk about their homeschool struggles? It’s like somehow it makes us look weak or not-sufficient or it gives homeschooling a bad name. We all sit in our houses trying to do our best and it can be pretty lonely if you don’t have someone that you can [...]||6/25/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E4: What you Need to Know Before Buying Curriculum||It’s curriculum buying season and the number one question on everybody’s mind is: “What should I choose?” I talk a lot about curriculum on my blog but today I wanted to specifically address what we need to know and how we can create a brief, big-picture “plan” of our days to help us identify, before [...]||6/18/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E3: When They're Falling Behind||Falling behind… this is a little bit of an undercurrent in the homeschool world. It exists, but it is clearly not talked about. There are supposed to be three camps in homeschooling: the gifted children, the struggling children, and the average children. Clearly the average children are still above average because of the simple fact [...]||6/11/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E2: Planning Your Homeschool Year||Planning is one of my favourite topics to write about because I LOVE LOVE LOVE planning. I love pulling out my planner (together with it’s partner in crime, coffee), the feel of the soft leather in my hands and the weight of all my dreams and vision and goals carried within the pages. I love [...]||6/4/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS4E1: DITL Blogging Homeschool Mom||Curious to know the kind of chaos that exists behind the doors of this blog? What does my personal life look like? How do I fit it all in? Well, or starters, you’re going to have a pretty good idea when I introduce my podcast episode with my OLD title instead of my new one. [...]||5/28/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS3E7: When Your Curriculum Isn't Working...||Curriculum problems are a real thing. The kind of thing that drives you batty and makes you want to give up homeschooling all together. If you curriculum isn’t working then likely your kids aren’t enjoying homeschooling, you aren’t enjoying homeschooling and it may all stem from one simple change. Before we even begin today’s episode, [...]||2/19/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS3E6: 10 Things Only a Homeschooler Understands||What’s the deal with pajamas? Or the fact that we only dress up if we are going somewhere? What about our addiction to school supplies or how hard we are on ourselves? In this episode I talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to homeschool life. I’ll share a few [...]||2/12/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS3E5: 5 Realities of a Christian Homeschooler Today||When I was homeschooled, you could pretty much assume that any other homeschooler was a Christian family–it just went along with the territory. However in the past 25 years things look drastically different than they once did. With a large movement of secular homeschoolers joining the ranks (yay!), it can be difficult to find your [...]||2/5/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS3E4: Choosing Curriculum that Works||We are half way through the homeschool year and I am still inundated with emails from people who are unhappy with their curriculum. They feel stuck with something that isn’t working for them or their children. Whether you are looking at homeschooling for the first time or have been doing it for years… curriculum is [...]||1/22/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
I love listening to the podcast. I’ve been on her email list for a while now and I love the blog. The podcast is just as good if not better. She is so relatable and the tips and advice are great.
Love Love Love!!
This is my favorite homeschool/life podcast ever. I love the “real ness” of her and I feel it is so relatable. Please keep podcasting, even if it is only 2-3 times a month. Just chatting is great!
Great info and love the authenticity
Just listened to the morning basket podcast. It was super helpful and simple. I enjoy your conversational tone. It’s like we are sitting in the same room together chatting about our kids. Keep it up!
