{Resources}

 

I am so excited you stopped by today! Why? Because it’s here! The {Resource List} I promised all you mommas. It’s been two years since my husband and I made the decision to homeschool. Here’s the thing… we had no clue what we were doing.

That’s when my search for both homeschooling and educational resources began. For two years I’ve researched, researched, researched. Sometimes, I researched so much I felt overwhelmed and had to put a pause.

Two years later, I can honestly say I have great peace about our decision. I’ve taken the time to pray, learn, apply, and have fun doing it.

In an effort to organize sites which have been helpful in my searching. I have created today’s {Resource List}. Let me just add a disclaimer here. Although I’ve been very careful about recommending sites in line with my own personal beliefs, I do not support, endorse, or receive monetary incentive to promote any of the sites listed.

Instead they are simply sites which at one point or another have been helpful (especially financially, lots of freebies!!!) in our journey. Keep in mind, that many sites are homeschooling sites. But you don’t have to homeschool to find great tips, ideas, crafts, and printables. If you have a heart to teach your child (homeschooling or not) then go ahead and check them out. You won’t regret it.

With that said, here’s the list (if a link does not work, please let me know so that I can fix it):
