I Am Your Voice

So many times we sit miles away, listening to the news and we feel helpless when hear about families torn apart by war. Well, no longer. I heard about a group of bloggers banning together in order to bring the plight of the people suffering to LIGHT. The attrocities are currently taking place in parts of […]

Stop Motion Video & Homeschooling & Time

Time. It is something we don’t have, right? Wrong. Part of the reason I homeschool is to give my children a chance to seek their passion, explore their interests and find things to do that are creative, educational or just plain fun. I give them TIME…for details on how I do this listen to my […]

Attitude is Everything

Who would have thougth that recording a podcast for my Vintage Homeschool Moms show, on having the right attitude would be so difficult. It wasn’t so much the praying, the planning or the scripting out my key points… it wasn’t the handout or even the recording that was the issue. It was the playback that caused […]


When God Sends Us Surprises

This year we were not planning a vacation, far from it! This was my daughter’s year to try-out for the All-Star Softball Team. Both of her brothers had been selected in years past, the youngest Michael for five years running. This was Anne’s year. So, she practiced, played games and tried out. She soon learned […]


It’s All About Ewe

“So, to review,” said my doctor at an annual check-up, “you’ve had a death in the family, your husband was out of work for four months, you’ve moved to a new town, and you had major surgery. All in one year. You’ve had a lot of stress in your life.” I looked at her with […]

Creation Camp – Learning God’s Truth at Home

There are many reasons to have a camp at home with your children – anytime, not just during the hot summer months. It brings unity among the parents and children, it is entertaining and most of all it teaches using my favorite–hands on activities. What I enjoy about this particular unit is teaching about the […]

Need Money For Homeschool Books?

After all the years of homeschooling I added up the amount of money I’ve spent and let’s just say, I could be driving a luxury car. I’ve homeschooled since 1986 and in that time I’ve purchased thousands and thousands of dollars in curriculum. It was everything from books to math videos (in the hundreds of […]

Finding A Mentor

How and Why to Find a Mentor

As a homeschooler, have you struggled with any of these questions? What are my state requirements? How do I get started? What do I teach and when? What methodology is best for my family? What do I say to critics? How do I schedule our day? How do I motivate my kids to do lessons? […]


Summer Fun – Water Pressure

When I think of summer fun my mind immediate gravitates to science. Yes. Science. Is. Fun.  When my oldest two were homeschooled swimming and water activities were a great part of our homeschooling. So much so, that I convinced my non-loving-water-husband to get SCUBA diving certifications along with our kids. And, yes, it counts as […]


Travel Brings Online Friendships to LIFE!

If you’ve heard my podcast, Destination: Inspiration, here on the Ultimate Homeschool Radio Network before, you know I LOVE travel. Not just for the adventure and excitement, but truly for building world changers. And, I guess I’ve traveled so much that I consider myself one of those world changers. I really don’t fit in a […]

Homeschool Convention Help

Help! I’m Attending a Homeschool Conference.

The first conference I attended was a mix of excitement and trepidation. Upon leaving I was physically and mentally exhausted, and had spent over $900.00 on books and games. Games? Yes, games. Were games on my list, you ask? What list? Times have changed and our disposable income has dwindled. Even the most well-heeled among […]

Common Core – Fact or Fiction?

Part One – Common Core Fact or Fiction? Common Core is something that has been in the works for a long time but just crossed my radar about a year ago. I received a lengthy letter from a well-meaning homeschool mom asking if my curriculum was alligned or not. Deer in the headlight time. I […]

Move Past the Juggling Act and Learn to Flourish

Are you paralyzed by such a long to-do list that you don’t know where to start? Do you drag through the day exhausted, thinking only of how much longer it is before you can finally collapse into bed . . . just to get up and start all over the next day? Is your life […]


How to teach teenagers about managing money (when you’re not doing so great yourself)

  It’s tough to teach teenagers about managing money, especially if you’re not doing so great yourself! But we all know that money management is an important skill that your teenagers will use every day of their adult life. They may never use Algebra II again, but money skills are vital. I have an episode […]

Organizing Made Easy for Do-It-All Moms

Do you have more curriculum than you can possibly use? Are you always running? Do you struggle to find time to clean? If so, you and I can relate. Maybe you can relate to this aspect of me, too: I try to do it all myself. We don’t have time for a lengthy psychoanalysis of […]
