I talk to homeschool moms (either in person or online) pretty much every day. And I talk to moms who don’t homeschool but wonder if they should on a weekly basis. You may be wondering yourself . . . why homeschool?
The decision to homeschool is one most families do not take lightly. Especially families for whom things may not be easy. Dyslexia, ADHD, life-threatening allergies, chronically ill moms and children, public school bullying and safety, military or missionary life, busy dad’s schedules, frequent travel, gifted children, autism and Asperger’s, and a plethora of other reasons are driving many moms and dads to consider homeschooling.
If you are one of these moms wondering, “why homeschool?”, I have great news! I have gathered 28 veteran homeschool moms who have embarked upon this wondrous journey we call homeschooling. They have all been where you are — looking at their unique families and situations and making a decision that will likely change the trajectory of the lives of their children.
It is our hope and prayer that in their stories you will find the encouragement and practical information you need to make this decision for your family. Either way — if you choose to homeschool or not — know that you are not alone.

A few years ago, I contributed to a book compiled by Lorilee Lippincott, titled You Can Do It, Too: 25 Homeschool Families Share Their Stories. The book is available in print, but for this month only, I’ll be offering it free to email subscribers. This book is different from the series in that homeschool moms are sharing more about how they homeschool rather than why. I think you’ll find it valuable if you are considering homeschooling or if you are wondering how other families do it. To receive this eBook for free, enter your email below. If you are already a subscriber, go ahead and enter your email anyway. It will not double the emails you receive.
