I'm so glad you're here!
I was immersed in homeschooling my 5 kiddos for 25 years. Sounds like a long time, right?

Well, you'd be wrong - it flew! We've still got one to go, but I know it's just a blink of an eye.

These days I fill my time writing, podcasting, and doing various and sundry VA (virtual assistant) activities for creative-types. My heart is still with homeschool moms, tho, and I love encouraging and supporting them.

Our homeschool years were the best years of my life! And they can be yours, too!
Look around the site here - it's somewhat of a launch pad to my life and activities today. And if you see something that interests you or might help you out - get in touch!

After all - that's what we're here for!


Homeschooling has been both my passion and career for over 20 years. I continue to encourage and empower homeschooling moms as they homeschool through high school on my blog, Breakthrough Homeschooling.


Books to support your role as a Christian parent and homeschool mom. I enjoy inspiring you by sharing interesting and useful tools to "up" your parent and homeschooling game!

Life after homeschooling

The years spent homeschooling are fulfilling, exciting, missional...and are gone before you know it!  While pouring our all into our kids' lives, sometimes we're left unprepared when it's time for them to leave. Design your own next steps using this totally customizable framework.

Since 1993

What's your story?

Sooo...ya know how when you first meet someone and you sit and start some small talk you think "I just KNOW they have a great story inside?"

At least that's what I often think when I meet someone - and they usually have more than one.

I know it often takes time to discover them...

It's taken a while for me to discover my own stories, too.

But now that I've started,  I don't want to stop.

Other stuff about me:

  • I love coffee...but not coffee-flavored things;
  • Sometimes I talk too much and too fast - I have a hard time bridling my enthusiasm;
  • I'm a firm believer in practicing gratitude, reading the print version of a book whenever possible, and the Oxford comma.
