I have no idea how many times I've attempted to answer those words. Often they are a question of intrigue, curiosity or surprise. Let's face it, other times they are a dismissive accusation toward the life's work I've embraced with my whole heart. Sometimes they are a wonderful opportunity to come alongside another family searching to find the path we've walked. When I volunteered to write a guest post for my friend, Stef, about my homeschool journey in order to help families who might be considering this life-altering decision, I didn't know how to summarize the journey that has become our way of life.
So I've chosen to just open my heart and share with you the very beginning, on this Mother's Day weekend... how I came to make one of the the most pivotal decisions in my life and that of my children. I hope you will visit Stef, at Layton Family Joy to read my journey and that of other homeschooling moms. If I can answer questions or offer support to your family as you consider homeschooling for the first time, or reevaluate your current homeschooling endeavors, I am but an email away.

Richest blessings to your family as you see with your heart the path specifically carved for you.
From my mama-heart,
