Make Laundry Fun

Make Laundry Fun
Make Laundry Fun Anne, one of my Gold Care Club members, takes her laptop into the laundry room and listens to my classes while folding laundry. Anne says, "You make folding laundry so much more fun, now!" Funny thing ... I mentioned that Anne folds laundry while listening to classes during my online class the other night, and she was in the class with me! The next day she wrote to me again: "Thanks for the...

Should I Start Homeschooling?

Should I Start Homeschooling?

Brand New To Homeschooling High School?

Brand New To Homeschooling High School?
I had a question today from a mom who was very concerned about starting to homeschooling high school.  Here is part of my response. Are you brand new to homeschooling?  Or just new to high school? I don't know any of the specifics about your state homeschool law, but I can help you with the "what do I do next" question.  I suggest two things.  First, contact your state's homeschool organization, and talk to them about...

God is the Go-To Guy

God is the Go-To Guy
Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. "Oh No!  High school!  How will I ever figure out what to do, how to teach?  What should I plan on?  Which path do I choose?" Homeschooling parents often look at the teenage years with fear.  I know I felt that way myself.  Fear is a very human emotion - people have experienced...

God is in the Homeschool Trenches!

God is in the Homeschool Trenches!
"I could never be around my kids all day!" Outsiders may look at homeschool families and wonder how they survive being around their offspring all day long, every day of the week, all year long, for years at a time. The truth is, most of us don't just survive.  We THRIVE!  It's true that parenting is hard, and the joys sometimes seem few and far between.  But when you homeschool, you are at least THERE to...

Where do I start?

Where do I start?
A mom wrote to me asking where to start.  As the parent of an 8th and 10th grader, she was feeling completely incompetent and needed a quick dose of you-can-do-it reality.  For beginners, I recommend the video Preparing to Homeschool High School .  It covers all the basics of how to homeschool high school, from planning courses, to giving tests.  My goal is to remove the fear of homeschooling high school, so that you can listen...

Interrupted by God

Interrupted by God
We must be ready to allow ourselves to be interrupted by God. It is a strange fact that Christians and even ministers frequently consider their work so important and urgent that they will allow nothing to disturb them. They think they are doing God a service in this, but actually they are disdaining God's "crooked yet straight path" (Gottfried Arnold). But it is part of the discipline of humility that we must not spare our hand...

Starting from a Dead Stop

Starting from a Dead Stop
I was whining to my cousin, I confess.  I never let my kids whine, but it's OK for me.  You know how that is.  Anyway, I was complaining about my getting a remodel.  I know I have to do it.  Two months ago we pulled off some wallpaper had a new kitchen window installed.  Here we are, two months later, and I still have no paint on the walls, and the window remains "unwrapped."  I don't...
