Homeschool Mama Book Club: get your homeschool mama reading list

…how our favourite authors inform our homeschools

If you want a homeschool mama book club where you can show up with other homeschool mamas who want to show up on purpose in their homeschools & lives, then this is the book club for you.


Who are Your Homeschool Influencers?

The greatest influencer is YOU!

What you allow yourself to think influences how you feel which influences how you act and engage in your homeschool.

And I know you want to SHOW UP in your homeschool intentionally.



We have to be intentional about who influences us in our homeschool…

I read a lot (I know so many of us homeschool mamas do!)

I have read a bajillion readalouds, I continue to read with my thirteen-year-old son (the oldest three girls are all grown up), but I read books from the homeschool world, books about self-development, and books about people and stories, just for fun!

Join monthly to engage in book club discussions from important influencers that can shift how we show up in our homeschools. The books we read together help us show up on purpose in our homeschools.

Read the book in advance, or don’t. 

(If you don’t have time, don’t worry, because I will be reading the book for sure!)

Engage in authentic, vulnerable conversations that enable your community & connection. 

Because we’re building a community of authentic, kindhearted, real homeschool mamas who want to show up for our homeschools and offer a community for others like us too.

What homeschool mamas are saying about this book…

Homeschool Mama Self-Care by Teresa Wiedrick: Is it on YOUR Homeschool Mama Reading List?

“Clearly, Teresa writes from years of valuable experience, and so generously shares them with new homeschool momma for their benefit. If you’re trying to figure out how to get started taking the stress out of your homeschool day, the section where she shares her own story of overwhelm is pure gold! You’ll find solid, experience-tested examples from her own life on creating an environment that is conducive to real education. Also, take note of the authors she recommends as her influencers. If you have to pick a section to start somewhere, there it is!”

~ Pat Fenner, BreakthroughHomeschooling.com

“My homeschooling journey has included a growing pile of books that I have read, browsed, or barely got past the first chapter. This book is just delightful and a gem! It’s not only helpful and inspiring but also funny. The author is like that no nonsense brave friend who is looking out for you and your well being as a homeschooling mama. We all need that friend and I am taking my time as I work my way through the chapters and enjoying it all. I love the section on overcoming overwhelm, grappling with perfectionism and minding and working through our emotions. This book is worth its weight in gold. Find a quiet place to read, bring a warm cup of tea, and enjoy!”

~Sonia, Homeschool Mama in S. Jersey

“I was just reading through the chapter in this book last night about anger and failure. Whewww, like you’re speaking right to me. Thank you for being so honest about those things. Every night I can’t wait to jump back into your book. Thank you for so authentically sharing about the moments and feelings we all experience, but rarely go into detail about.”

~ Bacci

“Wonderful book. Down to Earth and relatable. A must-read for homeschooling moms.”

~ Celeste Tio

“Parents take on homeschooling with gusto, but often find themselves burning out in the first year by trying to do too much and being the ultimate educator. Teresa takes on the topic with a book overflowing with ideas to make a parents and child’s day go smoother. Letting go of unrealistic expectations and the school model of education goes a long way in acquiring serenity in home education. Understanding how the uniqueness of home education unfolds and why children never stop learning, no matter how much teaching is done, is key to success. Homeschool Mama Self-Care: Nurturing the Nurturer, with a cup of tea, is essential for all new-to-homeschooling parents and guardians.”

~Professional Parenting Canada

“This book is a must have for any homeschool mom. Full of practical tips and lots of encouragement. I love how Teresa is open and honest, sharing her story along the way.”

~Meghan, Joyful Mud Puddles
