If you're like most of my listeners, you, too, wear many hats and you have a lot of demands on your time. It's difficult to juggle it all as a homeschool mom. And it's easy to be overwhelmed by everything you need to do. This show is not about finding the right curriculum or doing all the right things. It is about helping you focus on the best for your homeschool and your family.

    047: My Homeschool Story

    As much as I enjoyed creating episodes of the All in a Homeschool Day podcast, I fell into a rut. I wasn't sure how God wanted me to serve you and what podcast episodes would be most helpful for you.
    So I took a break.
    It was much needed!
    Now, five months later, I have clarity about my mission at Triumphant Learning and the All in a Homeschool Day podcast. I also have a renewed vigor about creating episodes for you. I didn't realize how much I missed recording these episodes until I sat down to record the first one. I felt giddy like a schoolgirl on Christmas morning!
    If you're new to the podcast, welcome!
    If you've been a loyal listener for a little while or from the beginning, welcome back!
    In this episode, you'll learn The story of how we began our homeschool journey, and the excuse I gave as to why I couldn't homeschool. What my husband thought about homeschooling in the beginning. The reasons why we started homeschooling and why we homeschool now. My favorite book, and why I love it. The mission of Triumphant Learning. See the full show notes:https://www.triumphantlearning.com/047/

    045: How To Add Nature Study To Your Homeschool With Cindy West

    045: How To Add Nature Study To Your Homeschool With Cindy West

    I'll be the first to admit that I am often​ the limiting factor in us actually doing nature study. It is one of the first subjects I cut when we get busy. And if it's cold, hot, windy, buggy... Well, you get the idea. But I know how valuable nature study is for my children so I made it a priority when they were little.
    The past couple of years we have not studied nature as consistently because our schedule has gotten busier, and my children's other subjects have consumed more of our day. But after my interview with Cindy West, I am convinced I need to add nature study back into our homeschool. And even though I know it is best for us to get outside to study nature, I am excited that we now have another option to learn about nature via live classes.
    If you are hesitant to add nature study to your homeschool because you don't know what to study or you don't want to get outside, this episode is packed with helpful suggestions and ideas for the brand new nature study newbie.
    If you are a nature study veteran, there are tips for you too!
    What we talked about The benefits of adding nature study to your homeschool. You may be surprised at some of these benefits. I was! How nature study lays a foundation for high school science and the simple and fun activities you can do on a nature walk to help lay that foundation. How to motivate your children on a nature walk. Alternatives to a nature walk if you cannot get outside. See the full show notes:https://www.triumphantlearning.com/045/

A must for homeschool moms!

Crystal has such a welcoming voice and presence. She delivers encouragement and value for the homeschool mom. Her passion shines through in the podcast. Highly recommend!!!

Love the encouragement!!

I felt such a sense of community as I listened to these episodes! I have been homeschooling our preschooler but not very consistently although she’s been in a MDO program but we are about to start kindergarten. Homeschooling can be very intimidating there are so many options and methods and ideas it’s very overwhelming but multiple times I’ve heard keep it simple and go slow and it has really eased my anxiety about getting started!! I have absolutely lived this podcast and I’m so grateful for the wisdom you share & the biblical perspective you bring!! Thank you so much!!

Catterfly3 ,

Helpful and reassuring!

So happy I found this podcast. I just decided to homeschool beginning this next school year, and I am nervous to say the least. I started with the first episode and am nearly caught up - I love the advice and the reassurance that I CAN do this. I am taking notes and looking forward to applying the things I am learning. Thanks Crystal!
