The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…
     Remembering the anniversary of the May 22, 2011 tornado that changed everything for Joplin and the surrounding area.

In our homeschool this week…
     Just finishing up required hours.  From here through at least the end of June, only Bible and an hour of silent reading will be required of all three of my students.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
     Read to your children every day.

I am inspired by
     People who keep going even when it's hard.

My favorite thing this week was…
    Listening to my daugher, Emily, share Jesus with her uncle.

What’s working/not working for us…
     A set time for work, reading, and creativity each day.

Things I’m working on…
     Finishing a dress I started for Easter!

I’m reading…
     A Perfect Square by Vanetta Chapman

I’m grateful for…
     Twenty-six years

I’m praying for…
     My family.

  1. I love this! I am wanting to start homeschooling with my daughter this summer!

  2. I love your tip - Read to your children every day. (definitely)

  3. I'm inspired too by people who persevere through challenging circumstances. I can't even begin to imagine what the people of Joplin went through a year ago.


Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
