As someone who started out as a secular homeschooler, finding your blog was a turning point for me. I have felt supported by this online community as my reasons for continuing to homeschool have changed and are more to do with God and less to do with the SAT’s each day. I tell others about your blog in hopes they will be inspired as well.

Oh my gosh. It’s great just knowing that I’m not alone in the busy homeschool mom world!! There are others who go through what I do or feel how I feel and I (and my kids) will survive!! (lol) Heidi, you encourage me every day just by being real. You encourage me to love my kiddos and hubby more. I so appreciate all your wisdom! God bless you!!!

Sarah

I just love that your wisdom and encouragement is genuine and rooted in the Word.

Your blog is like a hug, a bit of camaraderie, somewhere I can check in and see that I’m really doing all right and I’m not alone out here.

Katie

Your blog reminds me that I’m not just a mom who homeschools, but that by investing in my children and shepherding their hearts I am directly impacting eternity. What a high calling it is to be a mother!

Danielle

“Character before curriculum” is my new motto and I think I have a pretty fantastic little boy because of it!

I am a new homeschool mom and was ready to give up when I stumbled across your site. I read your site and cried and cried. I realized I wasn’t alone and that I could do this – your site encourages me!

Andrea

The Busy Mom is my number one reminder that God comes first, and then my husband comes before EVERYTHING else. When I found TBM, I was thrilled to see that putting my husband before kids was the RIGHT thing to do. What a joy to celebrate being “That Girl!” My husband thanks you for helping me get my priorities in order!

I read your posts every day and look forward to them every day. They are so uplifting, especially to someone who is about to pull their 3rd grader out of public school and start the wonderful adventure of homeschooling. I can only imagine how much I will benefit once he is at home being taught by me!

changing hairstyles + fresh starts

Consistency is such a grounding word.  It evokes notions of bills paid in a timely fashion.  Of library books returned 2 weeks late on time.  It thrusts forth this idea that togetherness and order are, in fact, BFFS with good time keeping and practical spending. I imagine them all piled like good little school girlsRead More

Don’t Let Your Youth Pastor Raise Your Kids

Don’t Let Your Youth Pastor Raise Your Kids

Sweet mom—do you know how important your job is? The questions this generation is asking are big. They’re soul-altering big. They’re too big to ignore. I believe the questions this generation is asking will define our culture. Several years ago, I found this soul-nugget in the book of Luke: “When a child is fully trained,Read More

Things Not to Say to Moms of Special Needs Kids

In my almost 20 years as the mom of a severely autistic daughter, I’ve been questioned, judged, accepted, ignored, loved, rejected, and just about everything in between! I’ve also learned a lot. One of the things I like to do whenever possible is help and support other moms of special needs kids. But lately, I’veRead More

I’ve been having some sort of inner crisis lately. I’ve been burnt out on doing what I HAVE to do and not really feeling like I am doing anything I WANT to do. I haven’t even been able to think of what it is I would rather do. I’ve been at a stand still andRead More
