330 | Homeschooling and Homesteading (Jessica Smartt with Megan Ross)
2022/06/13
In this episode, Jessica interviews Megan Ross, who amazingly juggles both homeschooling five children AND running an impressive homesteading operation. We talk about all the things - balancing schoolwork and farm chores, butchering animals (yes), growing fruit trees, and which homesteading ventures offers the biggest ROI. Guest biography Megan Ross is a first generation homeschooler and homesteader in North Carolina. She raises five children, along with goats, rabbits, chickens, and lots of crops on her two-acre well-maximized space.  Host biography Jessica is a wife, homeschool mom of three, author, and blogger.

329 | Do You Know Where Your Children Are? (Sean Allen)
2022/06/07
In light of the recent shootings carried out by 18 year olds, an excellent question for the parents of America to ask themselves is, "Do you know where your children are?" Of course we should always be aware of where they are in a physical sense (for then we can take stock of the influences they may be exposed to) but we should also know better than anyone where they are spiritually. Parents who are careful to observe the behavior of their children from day to day and who are quick to uproot any anomalies they might observe in their character will NEVER raise a child capable of perpetrating such crimes against their fellow men.   About Sean Sean Allen is the founder of The Well Ordered Homeschool, husband to his beautiful bride Caroline and a proud father of eight. He has a bachelor of fine arts in graphic design and is passionate about creating materials to assist parents in the incredibly challenging, yet surpassingly beautiful, work of schooling and training their children at home.

327 | Caregiving and Homeschooling: Can Learning Happen? (Janice Campbell)
2022/05/25
Learning while caregiving — is it even possible? Can learning can go on while you’re caregiving for someone who is elderly or disabled? I want to reassure you that it can, but it will be different from what you might expect. If you can align your expectations with reality, make adjustments that keep you sane, and focus on priorities and essentials, you’ll be able to homeschool while you’re a caregiver. You may not achieve the picture-perfect homeschool you envision, but your family will learn many valuable lessons, and can even thrive. Host biography Janice Campbell, a lifelong reader and writer, loves to introduce students to great books and beautiful writing. She holds an English degree from Mary Baldwin College, and is the graduated homeschool mom of four sons. You’ll find more about reading, writing, planning, and education from a Charlotte Mason/Classical perspective at her websites, EverydayEducation.com, Excellence-in-Literature.com, and DoingWhatMatters.com.

326 | Dads Can Homeschool, Too! (Jeannie Fulbright with Sean Sherrod)
2022/05/10
Jeannie Fulbright interviews a dad who homeschools, Sean Sherrod. Jeannie and Sean discuss the issues that are unique to fathers who are the primary educator, as well as how having a father involved in the child's education benefits children. This podcast also encourages fathers, even those that work, to get involved in their children's education, because dads really can homeschool, too. Guest biography Sean Sherrod lives with his wife Melissa near Richmond Virginia. He is the primary educator of his two young children. Host biography Jeannie Fulbright, a 24-year veteran homeschooler, is the author of the #1 best-selling, multi award-winning Apologia Young Explorer science series: Exploring Creation with Astronomy, Chemistry and Physics, Botany, Zoology, and Anatomy & Physiology. She is also the author of the action-packed historical time travel book series Rumble Tumbles Through Time, as well as preschool science books and activity kits, the Charlotte Mason Heirloom Planner, and many high-quality Charlotte Mason based products. Jeannie and her husband Jeff became empty nesters in 2019. All four of their children all went to the University of Georgia on scholarship (homeschooling works!). For more than 20 years Jeannie has traveled around the country speaking to homeschoolers at conventions, covering a plethora of topics from Charlotte Mason to marriage and prayer.  Connect Sean Sherrod | Instagram | Facebook Jeannie Fulbright | Instagram | Facebook | Facebook Group | Pinterest | Website Homeschooling.mom | Instagram | Website Thank you to our sponsors!

325 | Homeschool Like You’ve Never Homeschooled Before (Sean Allen)
2022/05/03
Often when we get weary in our homeschools, we settle for what's easy and secure. Unfortunately, if we do this for too long we fall into a rut and we miss the opportunity to capitalize on one of homeschooling's greatest strengths – its flexibility. In this episode we'll talk about the great blessings that can come from simply asking, "What could be?" What would happen if you changed things up a bit? Did something spontaneous and unexpected? Spent more time outside, more time reading, more time exploring the limitless opportunities at your disposal as a homeschooling family. What if you homeschooled as you've never homeschooled before? Host biography Sean Allen is the founder of The Well Ordered Homeschool, husband to his beautiful bride Caroline and a proud father of eight. He has a bachelor of fine arts in graphic design and is passionate about creating materials to assist parents in the incredibly challenging, yet surpassingly beautiful, work of schooling and training their children at home.

324 | Preparing for a Time of Persecution: A Curriculum Proposal (Janice Campbell with Andrew Pudewa)
2022/04/19
Is it imaginable that freedom of speech and freedom of religion could be suppressed where we live at some time in our future? History would indicate so. How do we prepare ourselves and our families for such a contingency? What curriculum might best prepare us for persecution, even martyrdom? How do we cultivate necessary virtues without sparking burdensome fears? Listen in as Janice Campbell and Andrew Pudewa explore this challenging subject. Guest biography Andrew Pudewa is the director of the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) and a father of seven. Traveling and speaking around the world, he addresses issues related to teaching, writing, thinking, spelling, and music with clarity, insight, practical experience, and humor. Although he is a graduate of the Talent Education Institute in Japan and holds a Certificate of Child Brain Development from the Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia, PA, his best endorsement is from a young Alaskan boy who called him “the funny man with the wonderful words.” He and his wonderful, heroic wife, Robin, have homeschooled their seven children and are now proud grandparents of fourteen, making their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Host biography Janice Campbell, a lifelong reader and writer, loves to introduce students to great books and beautiful writing. She holds an English degree from Mary Baldwin College, and is the graduated homeschool mom of four sons.

Episode 319 | Homeschooling: Then and Now (Janice Campbell with Jan Bloom)
2022/03/16
Join us for a book-centered conversation with guest Jan Bloom. You'll catch a glimpse of homeschool life in the early years, hear how BooksBloom, their traveling bookstore (a favorite stop at many of the Great Homeschool Conventions) came to be, and even hear a bit about what it's like to homeschool as a grandparent. You'll hear about several favorite books, and come away inspired, with a renewed sense of the joy of homeschooling and the fun of reading good books. Guest biography After hearing about homeschooling at a L’Abri seminar in 1982, Jan and Gary Bloom embarked on a new adventure with their three children. It evolved into a life inextricably intertwined with homeschooling, books, and travel.   Although they didn’t necessarily plan for such a mobile lifestyle, Gary and Jan have been on the road for over 20 years with their traveling bookstore, BooksBloom. Though they've slowed down a bit in the last couple of years and are homeschooling their 8 year old grandson, they still travel thousands of miles a year to set up their cozy used bookstore at homeschool conferences and BooksBloom seminars. Families who come to their booth can find both good books and great recommendations for parents and kids who are looking for just the right book on whatever they are interested in, enjoy, or need to study.  Jan writes, “Our lives are full of adventure - traveling, talking, rescuing books, sending great books to new homes,  laughing, and experiencing God's kindness and mercies daily. We are grateful to the Lord that He allows us to live such a crazy life.” Host biography Janice Campbell, a lifelong reader and writer, loves to introduce students to great books and beautiful writing. She holds an English degree from Mary Baldwin College, and is the graduated homeschool mom of four sons. You’ll find more about reading, writing, planning, and education from a Charlotte Mason/Classical perspective at her websites, EverydayEducation.com, Excellence-in-Literature.com, and DoingWhatMatters.com.
