I have been homeschooling my kids for the past 3 years and I have always wanted to learn more about homeschooling. I like reading blogs and books about homeschooling just to see if we are doing it right. Some books can be overwhelming and can make my head spin, but as I was reading “Simply Homeschool:Having Less Clutter and More Joy in Your Homeschool“, I realized that homeschooling can REALLY be simple.
“Simplifying Homeschool is about getting back to the reasons that He called us, eliminating the distractions in our day that hinder us from keeping our eyes on those goals, and about living more simply, so that we may Simply Live…for Him!”
“Simple Homeschool: Having Less Clutter and More Joy in Your Homeschool” is written by Karen DeBeus. She is a homeschooling mom to 4 children. As she has obeyed God’s call for her life to homeschool, she has gained some experiences and a passion about homeschooling that needs to be shared to every mom, whether you are a homeschool veteran or newbie.
The ebook has 7 chapters and focuses on:
- Getting rid of physical clutter and organization tips
- Getting rid of mental clutter
- Curriculum choices
- Meal planning
- Letting God lead your homeschool
- Avoiding the comparison trap, and letting your homeschool be YOUR homeschool
- Not letting homeschool become an idol-Keeping GOD first
I specifically liked the simple terms and straight to the point examples used in every chapter. I can easily relate to the situations presented and it allows me to reflect on my personal homeschool journey. Some lessons I’ve learned: Clutter can be a joy-stealer and this book has helped me to understand why it is important to declutter and do things the simple way.
Mental clutter is as damaging as the physical clutter that lays around in our house.
Letting God lead is most important and is often overlooked in homeschooling.
If you need a guide or just to be reminded of what homeschooling should be, this one is a must read. Simply Homeschool is available for only $0.99 (PDF download or on Kindle on Amazon).
