About Upside Down Homeschooling

When I began blogging two years ago, we were not what I considered your “typical homeschooling family”. We *only* had two children. I worked full-time outside the home while homeschooling. My husband wasn’t a Christian and definitely wasn’t the spiritual leader of our home. I felt God leading me to start a blog to reach out to all of those other homeschooling families who felt like they too weren’t your typical homeschooling families. The blog was built to highlight the unconventional methods and tactics of a homeschooling family in a situation like ours. I would provide encouragement, support and resources to help ALL homeschooling families.

Did you know God has a sense of humor?!

Well, He does…and He likes to show it to our family quite often.

Fast-forward two years to the present day…

We still only have two children. {Maybe He will show off in this area soon.}

I am no longing working full-time outside the home. God has provided through my blogging career time and time again and I’m now working full-time from home while homeschooling our daughters with the help of my amazing husband..

Speaking of which, my husband accepted Christ and was baptized in April of this year. Our family has converted to Catholicism and my husband is a great spiritual leader for our family.

Though God changed most of the areas in our lives that I felt made us an atypical homeschooling family, I still didn’t feel like we were your average homeschooling family. Which brought me to the question “What IS a typical homeschooling family?” Does that even exist?

Aren’t we ALL upside down homeschooling?

Aren’t we ALL shaken up and stretched thin by the daily chaos in our lives?

But aren’t we ALL also sustained by the unending grace of God?

I think so.

So, Upside Down Homeschooling has recently changed gears. I brought on a team of twenty awesome homeschooling moms who are sharing with you glimpses of their upside down lives. We are striving to encourage you in your daily walk as a homeschooling mother, wife, and woman of faith by providing you with practical advice and resources all with a healthy dose of reality mixed in. No perfect homeschooling moms here!
