Welcome From the Author

Welcome new and prospective homeschooling moms!

Over the past sixteen years that I have homeschooled our boys, I have been asked countless times by many friends and acquaintances for advice and input on how we practically handle a variety of issues related to home education and running our household.  While I have done my best during this time to be helpful and available, I have often thought that I would love to one day put together a manual that would improve my ability to serve and reach these moms and their families in a more efficient and significant way. 

That day arrived in the summer of 2010 and I am thrilled to share with you this mentoring program called The Balanced Homeschooler

Not only does this tool help me to come alongside all of those homeschooling moms that I would like to interact with in a more practical and personal way, but it also provides a mechanism to encourage other veteran moms to mentor and support the homeschoolers in their life who are up-and-coming.

Thank you for joining me and my family in the journey.  Join the nearly 100 moms who have enjoyed this program since 2010 and let’s get started!

Respecting Copyrights: The "Forgotten C"
by Carol Gary on 02/18/16

In my role as a mentor in the homeschooling community, I have observed an increase in recent years of homeschooling families and leaders who underestimate the importance of respecting copyright laws.
