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

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

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 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

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

Jennie

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.

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

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!

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

Life is just.so.short. I remember the season well, when my doctor informed me that “changes” in my body meant that I would likely not bear any more children.  It brought many emotions, fears and uncertainties.  I learned many of you had gone through the same thing, so I thought I’d share this again in caseRead More

A few years ago someone (who shall remain nameless) actually asked me why I am so “busy.”  I felt my insides shudder as I tried to think of a way to graciously put one husband, seven children (and all that entails), homeschooling, laundry, dishes, cooking, cleaning, yard care, running a homeschool ministry, extended family &Read More

When my son, Ben, studied the Holocaust during World War II, he was appalled at the evil he read about. The idea that a society could set about to cause the wholesale eradication of human life hurt his heart. It’s easy to look back in history and scorn the evil of the past, isn’t it?Read More
