With all the insanity going on in the public school system these days, the number of parents – especially Christian parents – choosing to homeschool is skyrocketing. Need somebody to point you in the right direction for suggestions, materials, and help getting started? You’ve come to the right place.
I’m a veteran homeschool mom. That means I homeschooled four of my children and they’ve all graduated and become productive, godly citizens. It also means I’m out of the day to day, in the trenches life of a homeschool mom. So I’m not keeping abreast of all the new curricula and methods and programs, but since I do get questions about homeschooling from time to time, I can at least give you a little nudge in the right direction. Especially for those of you who fall into two particular categories:
- I’d love to homeschool, but we can’t afford to live on one income.
- I’ve decided to homeschool. How do I get started?
If that’s you, I hope these resources will help:

In my 2017 article The Mailbag: Potpourri (NBCS, Homeschool resources, Piper…), I was asked…
Do you know of any good Christian homeschooling blogs?
I homeschool, so I’m asked from time to time about homeschooling resources, but to be honest, it’s just not something I really read about. I recently asked my readers to recommend some good, doctrinally sound online homeschool blogs and resources, and here’s what they suggested (Please note, I have not vetted any of these. You will need to do the research yourself to discover whether or not they’re doctrinally sound.)
✏ Family Renewal
✏ Reformed Homeschoolin’ Mamas
✏ Durenda Wilson (author of The Unhurried Homeschooler)
✏ Half-A-Hundred Acre Wood
✏ The Kingdom Driven Family
✏ IT’s Not That Hard to Homeschool (Formerly: Annie & Everything)
