Is it just me? Am I alone in this? In “Confessions of a Homeschooling Mom,” I open up and tell you about the real reason why I homeschool, the mistakes I’ve made, and the thing that irritates me the most. Through my personal witness, I hope that you can learn the lessons I’ve learned, and rest assured that you’re not alone out there.

You’re a strong Catholic homeschooling mom, and you can do anything. But some days are better than others. Amy will tell about some of her not-so-great days and how she got through them, because even though homeschooling is a blessing, well, “There are those days….”

Some children take to schoolwork like a fish takes to water. For others, they might show a complete lack of interest or find the work so difficult that they get discouraged. How do we help them? This talk gives practical ideas for teaching the difficult learner.

Teaching reading is a breeze... teach the child the letters and sounds, a little bit of phonics and the child can read. Right? So what do you do when that doesn’t work? How do you teach comprehension? This talk will help you gather the tools to not only make you a better reading teacher, but a better teacher in every subject.

Amy will walk you through organizing your home by breaking it down to bite-size pieces, laying out the 3 levels of a well organized and clean home and giving practical advice on how to accomplish each one. She will show you how she applies the theory of a well run home to her family.  After this talk, you will be able to find your mind as well as that math book

The Mass gives us our direction - Go.  As homeschoolers, we are still bound by this order.  How do we balance our duty to our children at home with our responsibility to the Church?  We Get out and Go! Practical ideas for familes of every size.

Invite Amy to speak at your event.

She said she wanted to work together as a team and homeschool their children, each one doing their part and using their talents.  He heard, she's going to homeschool.  We all have this ideal in our heads about how a homeschooling family should work.  Problem is, mom's ideal may be very different than dad's.  

Mike and Amy tell the story of their homeschooling journey, the conversations they've had, the problems they've encountered. From pink laundry, to discipline, Mike and Amy tell how homeschooling has brought them closer together.    

I used to be a model Catholic.  I'd go to church on Sundays, confession every once in a while; I had my rosary hanging on the wall and Bible safely on the book shelf.   But I'm not anymore, or at least, I try not to be.   And it's all because of Mary that I'm doing everything I can to change.  Mary teaches us to be the women God made us to be.  Through her beauty and strength, Mary teaches us how to transform and become a little like her - the Iron Butterfly.

I need to tell you about my "sista." In God is Good, All the Time, Amy tells her story about her diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.  Amy will have you laughing at cancer - and possibly crying too - as she reveals the worst thing about having breast cancer (it's not what you think it is) and the lessons she learned.  But in the end, you'll be praising God for the gift that cancer can be.

From Homeschool Parent

to Homeschool Teacher

You can't do this.  You're just a parent .  You're not a REAL teacher."

Amy takes this head-on and shows us why we are, in fact, REAL teachers.  Discover the role of a teacher and applications of long-standing academic principles, and learn that you CAN do this.  You are a parent.   You are a teacher.
