Simple Homeschool Ep #1: Welcome ~ The Road Less Traveled By
07:16

This is the podcast that brings a quick dose of homeschooling inspiration, confidence, and freedom your way, helping you discover the unique style of home education that fits your unique family. 

I’ve tossed around the idea of creating a podcast for a while, but it wasn’t until earlier this year, when I had the chance to record the audio version of my new book Introverted Mom that the pieces began to come together in my mind. I discovered how much I loved audio narrating, and I realized that many of the posts we have in the archives of SimpleHomeschool.net would make for perfect pep talks to listen to as well as to read.

So that’s what I’ll be doing here, pulling from the best of our archives as well as sharing brand new encouragement, offering you another way to engage with the inspiring content on our site, and I hope it’s a blessing as you fold the laundry, do the dishes, or take the kids to soccer lessons. 

For today’s first episode I chose a post I wrote six years ago. It’s perfect because it conveys the wonder, adventure and beauty, we find on our homeschooling journey. 

It’s called The Road Less Traveled By…
