You don’t find many half-hearted homeschoolers. Some of us stumble into this educational choice for a variety of reasons, true, but those who continue this lifestyle long-term are generally people of conviction, purpose, and belief.
Have you ever felt like something is holding you back? Have you ever found yourself homeschooling (or parenting) through fear–that you don’t have enough resources, that you aren’t good enough, that your children aren’t learning enough?
Personally, I have been blessed with a beautiful family–three children that my husband and I added to our ranks in less than three years. I wanted to be a mother, and eventually, a homeschooler; I believed this was an important part of my mission in life.
But I also felt a huge burden of insecurity–of not being up to the task.
We all know these insecurities, having fought them a little or a lot over the course of our parenting journey.
They arise from limiting beliefs–messages we subconsciously run in our minds, which form the framework for what we think we can or can’t do. Messages that often pass on to our kids, forming the framework for what they think they can or can’t do. And on the cycle goes.
What holds us back ends up holding our kids back, too.
But we’re not stuck. We’re never stuck.
By becoming aware, we become free.
Because just as bad mental programming starts with one thought, it’s also true that new beliefs and mindsets start with one thought.
With this conviction in mind, and having seen my own life revolutionized one thought at a time, I’ve spent the past six months working on a manual of freedom–not just for homeschoolers, but for moms (& parents) in general.
My new e-book, Mindset for Moms: From Mundane to Marvelous Thinking in Just 30 Days, contains an overview of all I’ve discovered about letting go of what holds us back so that we can boldly move forward.
Lessons that have taken me years to learn, you can learn in days. 30 days–to be exact.
I’ve consolidated these concepts into short entries–perfect for busy parents. For less than $5, you can download and begin reading in a matter of seconds.

I’m thrilled, humbled, and excited to share this book with you. I hope you’ll read it and find that it brings you one step closer to the life you’ve always wanted–a life with nothing holding you back.
What do you feel holds you back from being the best parent, and homeschooler, you can be?
