Do you have a preschooler and are curious about how to integrate Charlotte Mason's way of learning? Here are some tips to get you started!

#homeschool #charlottemason #preschool
The heart of a Charlotte Mason education is gentle learning and it’s never more gentle than when children are very young, the preschool years. Three to five years old continues to be a stage of curiosity and exploration.

Workbooks can be such a great tool for young children. All of mine loved them as Kindergartners! 
#homeschool   #ihsnet  
All of my children have really loved using workbooks, especially when they're young. I know some people frown upon workbook style learning, but I have somewhat of a different take. I really believe there is a place for them, especially in the early years. {This is a sponsored post. I was given workbooks free and have been compensated for this review. All opinions are my own. If you have young children, I really think you'll like the...

Everything we do begins with discipleship. Raising a family to know Jesus means discipling our children. Discipling our children will lay a strong foundation for a successful homeschool experience. Every act of discipleship creates the framework for everything our children do and believe.

When it comes to homeschooling, whatever method you choose to use, God should always be in the center, in the outskirts, and all throughout everything we do.

Tween girls are at such a tender age, with all kinds of questions and emotions sort of swirling in their heads and hearts. Often, they won't talk about these things unless prompted [and somethings not even then] because they don't know how to bring them up, or they can feel ashamed of having certain struggles or questions.

Do you have a tween girl? This Christian resource can help you and your girl sort through some of those challenges! Plus, I'm giving two copies away!

Today I'd like to address our mornings and why they are the foundation for our entire day. Even if you aren't a morning person, how you approach your mornings will make a huge difference in how the rest of your day flows not just from a productivity standpoint but from a mental and emotional place as well--for you and your family.

Often we talk about the productivity of our mornings, which is still important for making the succeed. But there's something else that is just as important...

I recently wrote a post on setting the atmosphere in our homes. Sometimes this can seem like such a daunting or impossible idea. We just don't even know where to start. Maybe you're thinking: My house is so busy, unorganized, and chaotic, it's overwhelming to think about turning it into a haven of peace, nurture, and rest. But our homes are the main hub of our lives and the lives of our husbands and children. Everyone needs a p...

There is somewhat of an art to setting the atmosphere of your home. I've found that it always starts with a firm foundation and consistent time with the Lord before anything else. Establishing that very important time to strengthen your relationship with Jesus and nurture your spiritual life, it's much more natural for your home to reflect an atmosphere of Christ.

Once that foundation is grounded, it's easier to see where we can make improvements in the following places in order to create a peaceful, nurturing, and loving home atmosphere. #homemaking

Maybe you've heard of the Martyr Mom Syndrome? It's the belief that everything you do and everything you are surrounds your children first.

There's a difference between sacrificing your own desires for someone and putting other vital relationships on the line unnecessarily.

I've noticed a trend among moms which I think is important to address and get to the heart of. While we may not immediately recognize martyrdom for what it is, there's no doubt some of us hold mothering on a much higher pedestal without even realizing it. Don't misunderstand--I'm not undermining just how wonderful and important motherhood is. Maybe you've heard of the Martyr Mom Syndrome? It's the belief that everything you do and ev...

We need to focus on areas that can improve and continue to pour into our relationship with Christ in deeper ways so we can lead our children into a deeper relationship with Him as well. Here are five foundational habits to build your homeschool on.
