Those who have made the decision to homeschool their children have done so out of great love for them and a desire to provide them an excellent education in the context of a warm, enriching home. Yet so many parents (mainly mothers) who have taken up this challenge find the enterprise often full of stress, worry, and anxiety. In this practical, faith-based, and inspirational book, Sarah Mackenzie addresses these questions directly, appealing to her own study of restful learning and her struggle to bring restful learning to her (six) children.

"Given me strength to press on & furthered my love for Sarah Mackenzie."
This book is amazing. As a new homeschooling mom (in our 5th week of our 2st homeschool year), I have already come to feel slightly overwhelmed with all there is " to do". The fear creeps up from time to time about whether or not I'll screw up our kids. But, I know the Lord has called me to do this great work. I must continue to trust that He will see it through to completion. I must rest in that.
Thank you, Sarah for reminding me to rest- to trust that when I need Him (which is all the time), He will immediately answer my cry. I can rest assured in that.
"This book is a must have for every homeschool mom!"
I loved this book!! I am preparing to listen to it again as I paint our study room. This book gave wonderful quotes and references. The advice and examples were easily appliable to daily life. The reader (who is also the author) read it beautifully. It was like she was inside my head as she wrote it and it was like talking to a dear friend as she read it.
"So helpful for 1st time homeschooling mom"
Love the philosophy and perspective given here for practically affecting my child's soul over checklists.
"Just what I needed at just the right time."
This book was a breath of fresh air. I'd like to get the print copy because it's one I plan to revisit again and again. Thank you for writing this book as it spoke straight to my soul.
"Lots of good nuggets 2 encourage us forward!"
Loved this book and the variety of suggestions for how to enjoy being a homeschooling family! I highly recommend it.
Thank you, Sarah, for writing this book! You are inspiring to this often tired homeschooling mom. You have broadened my horizon with the Schole Sisters and the Read-aloud Revival and now, with this book I see that I can homeschool confidently without stressing the small stuff, and focusing on the big picture.
it was a wonderful book, I will recommend it highly to fellow homeschooling moms. I will read it again I am sure! I need constant reminders!
"Nourishment for my soul"
Sarah's words are like a salve to my exhausted mama heart. Her encouragement is exactly what I needed to hear. I highly recommend reading this book during the winter break every year as the reminder of our purpose as homeschool moms.
"I got so much out of this."
The author does a flawless job of presenting her material. I gained so much out of this short listen. I must now go buy the paperback so I can highlight all my favorite quotes. Perfect for every homeschooling mom and someone contemplating it. Thank you, thank you Sarah!!
"The heart of a home-school mother!"
She speaks right to the heart of a home-school mother who is trying to honor God in how she raises, rears, and educates her children!
May God bless her 100 fold!
