Homeschool as a Single Mom

Finding herself a widow homeschooling five children, Charlotte shares some of the perspectives and insights of single parent homeschooling. Some lessons learned: adjusting to our current circumstances is not unique to single parents, how to positively embrace and maximize our circumstances, how to deal with reality that is vastly different from our expectations and knowing laughter and tears can intermingle in a healthy way.

Homeschool Moms and Mammon: Our Problem with Money

First, we’ll talk about how we view and handle money. Are we wise spenders or just plain stingy? We will talk about what God would want; then we will segue into how to use homeschooling to make money! Skills you are developing while homeschooling can be a portal to an income. We will discuss the day-to-day grind in using money, our spiritual foundations in our view of it and the hope our witness gives in the way we handle it, and the very practical and concrete ways to add to your family income!
