Homeschooling: Podcast Episode 3

Welcome back to Southern Joy with Sharon Ankerich and Amber Leggio we are excited to share our passion of ” The Blessing of Homeschooling”. In this Episode we talk about gentle learning with our kids, how it has helped our adopted children, what a typical homeschool day looks like for us, and how we fill our cup as moms to keep afloat on this homeschool journey.

We give lots of suggestions and ways to help your homeschool day. Don’t worry about taking notes as we share.  We have links in the show notes below.

Sit back and enjoy. We pray you will be encouraged in your homeschool journey. Even if you’re a mom just thinking about homeschooling, we pray that this may give you courage as well.
