Moms, are you ensuring YOUR education is continuing, too? Are you spending time to make yourself a better teacher and parent?
Continuing education for the homeschooling mom is VERY important.
Learning about homeschooling isn't just for the new homeschooler. As parents, we should always seek out the best resources to enrich our hearts and minds.
Recently I have stumbled upon a GEM of a resource - Homeschool Made Simple, from Compass Classroom.
Oh how I wish this DVD series had been around when I first started homeschooling - it would have given me such simple direction and guidance, and a huge dose of INSPIRATION, along with practical ideas for our homeschool.
(I'm just thankful I found it now, because I'm gaining so much from these videos.)

About Homeschool Made Simple
Homeschool Made Simple is a set of seven videos, designed to encourage and equip homeschooling families.
It is for the NEW homeschooler. It is for the VETERAN homeschooler.
The hostess of these videos is Carole Joy Seid - a veteran homeschooler, educator, and workshop presenter.
From Compass Classroom:
"We are pleased to introduce a new series designed especially for homeschool parents. Carole Joy Seid has over 30 years experience teaching thousands of moms and dads a literature-based approach to homeschooling. Her heartfelt desire is to make homeschooling simple, enjoyable and affordable. This is the first time she has put her material onto video: we think you’ll love it."
Whatever homeschool method you subscribe to, Carole's videos will resonate with you and inspire you. They are full of practical tips, wisdom, and just GOODNESS.

Why I Recommend Homeschool Made Simple
In a world of information overload (especially online!), it's been so nice to come across a resource that is peaceful, concise, and well done.
Each video is pleasantly done by Carole, as if we are sitting in her living room with her. She speaks quite plainly to us (many times using personal stories) about her recommendations for books, authors, structuring your days, character training, children & media, and MUCH more.
Carole is FIRM in her beliefs and I felt very comfortable in her knowledge and wisdom.
(I especially love that Carole tells us children and media is the hill she will die on -- it is the make or break in our homeschool, and I feel the same way!)
The videos are each approximately 30 minutes, so they can be watched while you are folding laundry, during your morning quiet time, or after the little ones are in bed for the night.
We owe it to our children to be the most well prepared, informed, and equipped moms possible.
Homeschool Made Simple is an investment in YOUR education. It is a resource I will be watching again and again as each homeschool year approaches.
