The Most Important Work You'll Ever Do

Yes you can e1644710000233

Homeschooling is the hardest, most important work you’ll ever do.  Teaching our children 00helping them be all they can be—is a complex, amazing journey filled with joy and love–it is not meant to be a lonely path.

You wonder if you are doing the right thing. Will your children ever learn to read, be kind, listen? Do you doubt your own abilities?

You are not alone. We’ve been there ourselves.

This year, we reveled in the opportunity to meet once again with many like-minded homeschool families at the one of the largest, most vibrant homeschool conventions in the nation.

Together, we rediscovered the STRENGTH in community, so we can learn, grow, and walk this beautiful, messy, incredibly important journey TOGETHER.
