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.

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

Jennie

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

Elizabeth

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!

Tracye

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

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

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

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!

Wendy

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!!!

  I hung up the phone and looked into my husband’s expectant eyes. “She’s not coming.” I whispered. He sighed with unspoken understanding and continued with what ever task he was attending to.  I can’t remember what it was. My heart ached and tears threatened, but taking a deep breath, I continued to wrap the multitudesRead More

This recipe is totally authentic tasting, because theRead More
