Who are Your Homeschool Influencers?
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…
💡 The Power of Influencers – You Are the Greatest One
Influence starts with you. Your thoughts shape your emotions, actions, and engagement in your homeschool. If you’re yearning to be intentional in your homeschool life, it’s essential to be mindful of who influences your journey.
I read a lot (I know so many of us homeschool mamas do!)
I have read a bajillion readalouds, and 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!

What Homeschool Mamas are saying…
“It was like going on a retreat in the comfort of my home! I loved the way you phrased so well what I have been feeling as a HS Mom, such as “homeschool is messy,” and “ homeschool burnout is not selective.” You really make me feel understood and validated. I felt like you sympathize with our plight and cheered us on (Go HS Moms, get the laundry, have the kids do the dishes, Go team!) You even seem to understand my love of dark chocolate, and lack of shower days (you don’t have spy cameras over here, I hope). 😏”
Kristina, Homeschool Mom
From an exhausted homeschool mama…
I found myself completely, utterly, depleted; I had returned from my first mental health unit stay and was surrounded by 7 children, 4-17 who needed me. I realized how I desperately needed to care for myself as well as I care for my children. And I didn’t know where they began and I ended.
Suffice it to say, I had virtually no boundaries and in addition, had a very idealized version in my head of what my homeschool SHOULD look like.
When I was offered a review copy of Teresa Wiedrick’s book I jumped at it. First, the author is HILARIOUS! She covers so much from looking into the “Whys” of homeschooling, managing our many diverse emotions, and caring for our bodies, and minds, also to being mindful of things we might otherwise not notice. Teresa offers a plethora of ideas for having fun; alone and with kids alike. She shared the value of community and of being organized. Overall, I think this book is fantastic and that any homeschool mom could benefit from.
