When we married in 1999, the idea of home educating was a notion only proposed by a madman, namely my husband.
My response? “Are you crazy?! There’s no way I’m homeschooling! Don’t you know what that will do to them?!”
Natural birth, attachment parenting, and herbalism were also foreign ideas that seemed crazier than homeschooling.
With the birth of my first child, my perspective changed and catapulted me into doing as much research as I could on natural living. Blessed with my special needs children, my life changed again, and I realized that homeschooling was the absolute best gift I could give them.
But all of these unknowns were intimidating. Where does a mom begin?
Seven children later, I find myself confidently rooted in our home where you’ll find books in every corner; children with magnifying glasses and notebooks scour the backyard; rabbit trails fill history lectures; poetry and prose happen as inspiration strikes; babies are birthed and nursed; and words as elderberry, tincture and astragalus are everyday vocabulary.
Knowing there are mothers in the same place, I provide a non-intimidating guide to motherhood, homeschooling, and natural living–a place where the everyday mom can come for information, inspiration, and community.
In a world in which social media has become a major platform, my goal is to provide a Titus 2 model for those women who lack a sense of community with like-minded others. Please feel free to contact me or write directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
