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

“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!

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

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 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

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!

My morning was hijacked by a FB post. I found out that lead could be leaching from my Crock Pot and contaminating my carefully planned meals.  I couldn’t be sure whether or not said Crock Pot might, in fact, be poisoning my entire family, but I spent most of the morning gripped with fear.

“Mama, it seems like my friend’s mom is more fun than you,” my daughter openly announced to me a few years ago.  I don’t even remember my response to her, but I know I was defensive about it whatever the words were.  It was a defining moment for me in my journey of motherhood.  OneRead More

In yet another example of our culture gone bezerk, over 236,000 people have signed a petition calling for “Justice for Harambe,” the gorilla that was shot and killed after a four-year old boy fell into his enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo.   Go home, “Change.org.” You’re drunk. Can any mother reading this REALLY tell me sheRead More

Up until 75 years ago most Americans lived in close contact with nature on a daily basis. Far more of us lived in rural communities, farming and raising livestock. We spent our evenings outdoors watching the sunset, listening to crickets and marveling at fireflies. But today we’re tethered to our electronics morning, noon and night.Read More

The times, they are a-changing. Every day, it seems a new surprise announcement surfaces for the American public to try and absorb, everything from political shenanigans to gender-bending news—and mandates and edicts ‘n stuff. Seems we can’t catch a break from the new social order that is rapidly being constructed around us—you know… the one our children and grandchildrenRead More

If you’ve been a mom for more than 10 seconds, you know it’s not for the faint hearted.  As I scroll through social media and the internet I see numerous posts (many of  them very good) about how hard it is to be a mom, but I find myself wondering if this is actually helpfulRead More
