Tuesday January – 14th from 8-9 AM I’m scheduled to be the guest for the whole hour on  Prepper Chicks: A Girl’s Point of View online radio show to talk about homeschooling!  Basically Homeschooling 101 – how to begin, why to begin, and where to begin.


You can go here to listen in at 8am or catch it later after it’s recorded in the archives. Look for the pink Prepper Chick girl with the black background on the left side.


FYI: Prepper Chicks and I have talked about doing a second show on Homeschooling Methods, Curriculum, etc at a later date.




I created this Resource Post for listeners of today’s show or anyone needing a starting point for their homeschooling journey.

Thinking about homeschooling or in the mix now and looking for encouragement? This post will be full of resources to help you. May I suggest you Pin It  or bookmark it in some way?


Speaking of Pinterest, I have 14 boards on homeschooling topics/subjects. You can follow me on Pinterest by clicking here. I’m also on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. All my page links are to the right in my sidebar —-> .

More Resources and FREE Printables

Homeschoolers love free printables 😉 

My Homeschooling Resources page:  Find places to buy used homeschool curriculum and some specific information for Ohio residents who want to homeschool like finding groups and more.


I shared this list of homeschooling resources that I found helpful in my homeschool research nearly 4 years ago.


Homeschool regulations vary by state.  I find it helpful to review a variety of suggestions and samples regardless of laws. Here’s a sample Homeschooling Schedule from an Oklahoma Homeschooling website that I thought was helpful. They also have a pretty lengthy list of free printable homeschooling forms.


Highland Heritage has many free homeschooling printables to help with different homeschool scheduling needs.
