Welcome to Capturing the Charmed Life…

I love this homeschool lifestyle, but self-care — you mean like getting out of my yoga pants and having a shower once a week? I don’t have time to get the laundry done before someone asks for a pair of socks — I’m trying to fit in the math workbooks between breakfast and piano practice. I definitely don’t have time for me!

Melodie, homeschooler of five


School just got cancelled! I’ve spent one day teaching my kids at home and I don’t know WHAT I’m doing. This is a whole new world. I love my kids, but I’m supposed to work at home, entertain them and teach them something? Help!

Thrive, Not Just Survive

Hi, I’m Teresa.

I’m here to help new homeschoolers adjust to their new world: being at home with their kids and facilitate their learning.

I’m here to help all homeschool moms incorporate self-care strategies into their real homeschool worlds.

I want us all to turn our challenges into our charms…

We all want to thrive,

not just survive,

our homeschools.

Great first podcast!

Teresa is engaging, honest, and to the point. She comes across as genuinely wanting to connect with her listeners. I look forward to hearing the next episode!
