Families are unique and each child is different, but one thing is the same for all of us: We love our children and want the best for them! 

We want to see them grow into confident adults who love learning and know how to learn and teach themselves all sorts of things. We don't want to hold them back, we want to give them opportunities. We want them to be comfortable with themselves and with others. We want them to explore, investigate, make conclusions and solve problems. We want them to love, be generous, show concern for others and make a difference in the world in which they live.

There's not one 'right' way to homeschool - 

It's your family, so - Design it YOUR way!

It's my joy to share the journey with you...

and help you Design Your Homeschool!

Welcome to your Step by Step Homeschooling Guide

My site is filled with helpful homeschool advice across 100's of pages - so think of it as a guide to homeschooling - 7 steps to follow to help you map out how to home school.

The steps are pictured below and they are mirrored on the top navigation bar for easy access so you don't have to feel lost!

Wouldn't you love to:

  • decide on your course of study,
  • teach different subjects,
  • discover that there are many approaches to homeschool - and then...
  • create your own curriculum within the approach which best describes you,
  • organize your environment and homeschool plan
  • connect with others and get homeschooling support.

Do I buy a Homeschool Curriculum?

P.S. ... This is not the first question to ask!

Many people begin with the question, "What homeschool curriculum should I use?" But, I'd love to suggest that you could consider designing your own plan!

In fact, that's how my site is structured. 

Wouldn't it be lovely to have the confidence to teach a variety of subjects? To create an approach that suits you and your children?  To choose living books to use as your curriculum?  To make decisions based on your goals and to enjoy this precious time with your God-given children?

You can give your children a high quality education! Learn alongside them, direct them, watch them and share the wonderful journey of homeschooling as a family!

Goals

educational goals - where are you heading?

As a family, you can decide what is important, what educational goals to pursue and how to go about it.

Imagine developing your own individual home school approach that reflects these goals, complements your lifestyle and is based on your own decisions, not someone else's. 

Let me help you Design Your Homeschool in your own unique way. 

Confidence

Choosing Homeschool Curriculum - important considerations.

Remember that when you are choosing your home school curriculum, you are the Master and the curriculum you may choose to buy, must be the slave.


How to Start Homeschooling

"I have been looking into homeschooling and have hit brick wall after brick wall. I finally used some sense yesterday and asked the Lord to direct me to the right  information and 24 hrs later... He led me to your website. Praise God!  We know the Lord has put it in our hearts to have our children homeschooled, without a shadow of doubt. Knowing where to start or how to do it, has been overwhelming and difficult to get any information... I've been reading through your website for about two hours now and my heart is jumping about in my chest, I'm so overjoyed!"  Terri-Lee

"Marianne...

Thank you so much for this site! It is an answer to my prayers and is helping me get my priorities into perspective. Seeing my children individually as God would want them, is helping me come out of the dilirium of first time home schooling and confusion. This is what I needed, an outline with descriptive objectives to produce my own family home school."

Millie

"Marianne- I just wanted to say thank you for your site. After homeschooling for the past 6 years, my husband and I were talking recently and he asked me to write out some big picture goals as I plan the new school year. I've been searching for some help online to little avail. I prayed today that I'd be able to find what I needed and your website is just the thing. I plan to comb through it carefully and use it as a guide. Appreciate all the wisdom and resources you share. Look forward to coming back again and again. Blessings,"

Christian Homeschooling

Trust Yourself ... Trust your decision ... Above all - Trust God!


Fear Not! God is with you.

You have been courageous by stepping out to homeschool and it's not something you want to do on your own.

We all need encouragement on the journey and it's wonderful to know that as a Christian we are never alone!

Join me on the Keep on Track Homeschool Ezine for ongoing support and articles of encouragement for Christian homeschooling.
