Bonuses in first 48 hours...

In just 3 days, we will be unveiling our brand new homeschooling through high school class. We're really excited about it for a couple of reasons:

1. Working with these expert authors has been a fantastic experience. We have not yet graduated our first high schooler, so we've brought in experts to teach on the subjects that we have yet to experience in full measure. It's been a great educational and rewarding experience for me!

2. Our Homeschooling ABCs course ( has really hit a sweet spot for new and seasoned homeschoolers alike. However, it does not delve as deeply into high school issues because it is a course that has a broader reach. So this next class will really hit those issues specifically and provide knowledge, resource and answers for parents who are considering or have definitely decided to homeschool all the way through high school.

The class will be open to sign-ups on April 1st and that is not a joke. For the first 48 hours, we'll be giving away a couple of bonuses and these are:

  • High School Forms & Checklists - all the paperwork you'll need to complete the high school years!
  • Helping Your Teen Find His Passion - Identify the Godly gifts and talents that will last a lifetime!
Also, the first 30 class members to sign-up will receive direct access to me for 30 days. You will become part of my personal support group and I'll take the time to answer all of your specific questions based on your unique circumstances. It's going to be fun!

Stay posted for all the details on April 1st.

5 Days and Counting...

Did you know that there are certain foods that will help your teen to concentrate better and stay more focused? These "brain foods" may even help him to get better scores on his tests. Keep your fridge and pantry well stocked with:

wheat germ
walnuts/other nuts

Limit energy type drinks and drink more water. This is a recipe for greater concentration, better focus and a stronger memory. Give it a try!

In 5 days we unveil our brand new class for parents of homeschooled high schoolers. Are you wondering if you can really do this? Are you afraid that something might slip through the cracks and he won't be able to graduate at the end of his senior year? Do you wonder if you can adequately prepare him for college and adult life beyond homeschooling?

Worry no longer! We are assembling everything you need to know about homeschooling high schooler in one complete course. You will learn how to:

1. adequately maintain a transcript
2. plan a 4 year course of study
3. design a course for high school credit
4. prepare your teen for the SAT/ACT tests
5. outsource difficult subjects
6. help him get motivated and stay that way

And so much more... Stay posted. We reveal everything you need to know to get started on April 1st - and that's no joke!

In just 6 days...

In 6 days, we will be unveiling our brand new class for parents of homeschooled teens. I cannot wait to share this with you! I've been working diligently on one of the lessons this week - Developing Good Study Habits. This is essential for your teen as he progresses through his high school and college years.

There are three parts to time management:

1. Organizing your stuff - if you don't have to look for it, you will waste less time!
2. Using your time efficiently - we all have just 24 hours in a day and how we use them will make all the difference in the world (setting aside a good number for sleep, that is).
3. Training your brain - by nourishing, resting and training your brain, you will be able to tap more out of it.

Next Wednesday, April 1st, we'll open up our class. It will run for 13 weeks, so if you enroll next Wednesday, you'll be wrapping it up by the end of June. This is perfect timing if you have a child in high school or about to begin high school.

JoJo Tabares has been working on our College Preparation lesson and let me tell you... it is jam-packed! This material is really solid and very step-by-step.

I'm excited!

Congratulations to our winners

Yay! I'm so excited to post the names of our 3 winners in our Homeschooling ABCs Giveaway. All three ladies were super excited to win this prize and are looking forward to getting a huge boost of encouragement and ideas for the remainder of the school year and on into next year as well.

Here are the winners:

Betsy Bookworm
Shawnda O.
Denise C.

Congratulations, ladies! Enjoy your prize. Wondering what they've won? You can take a look here - - and you can even download a sample lesson here:

The sample lesson is a mini-ebook in its own right. The title is "Math Can Be Fun!" Enjoy!

Stay posted as our high school course will be unveiled very soon. I cannot wait to share it with you. So many homeschooling parents lose their confidence once their children arrive at the high school years. They feel that it is easier and less stressful to just put them back into public school. I'm not knocking that decision, but I am offering hope, help and step-by-step advise so that you may continue to homeschool, even through high school. This course is only partially written by me. We have guest authors who have solid expertise in homeschooling, graduating and preparing teens for college and beyond.

It is so fun to walk this road together. It keeps us strong and on the right track.

Blessings to you,
