Homeschool can be tough work. Sometimes we choose it- sometimes it chooses us. Either way, as new or experienced homeschoolers we can struggle to know where to start in creating a vision for our homeschool. Sometimes the day-to-day practice of teaching at home can bog us down (in tears over math, personality conflicts, and curriculum overwhelm) and leave us wondering- WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?


“Where there is no vision, the people perish…” Proverbs 29:18

Sometimes, we just jump into the now, without really planning for the future. People that know way more than I ever will say that it’s nearly impossible to accomplish a goal if you never do the work of setting it in the first place. Visions and goals need consideration, thought, prayer- and maybe most importantly- to be recorded, in order to be reached.

So why should we take the time to create a vision statement for our homeschool?

  • So we know where we are headed.
  • So we can look back and see how far we’ve come.
  • So we can have a lens through which to view trends and new curricula for our family’s needs and purposes (instead of getting caught up in the latest craze). 
  • So our entire family can have a united vision for what our days hold.
  • So our children can see the END purpose of all of their hard work. 
  • So we can reflect and refresh ourselves on particularly challenging days. 

With all of this in mind- I’ve created a 13 page workbook in which I hope to take you on a journey of reflection on your past choices, clarity on your present reality, and vision for the future of your homeschool.

Having a true VISION that inspires and unites your family can help shift your homeschool days from being something to survive to being a source of pleasure in which you all THRIVE!
