Home School Resources

by Julie Branstetter, Th.B. Welcome to my home school blog. I have been a 'stay at home mom' from the time I gave birth to my first daughter in 2002. I started homeschooling both of my girls in 2013. I currently home school a 7th grader and a 3rd grader and I also care for a 1 year old at the same time. I am a Christian mom and often find much of my encouragement through my faith. I chose to home school because I believed that my husband and I could provide a better curriculum and learning experience for our children from home. We also value the ability to teach them with Godly perspective. We hope to raise life long eager learners who excel as far as they can and do as well as possible in life. I want to fill this page with home school resources to help you grow a more and more successful home school. Whether you home school or are looking for things to supplement your child's education, you can find things to help you here. Guest posting is always welcomed.
