Homeschool Planning Doesn't 

Have to Be Overwhelming

  • Are you tired of wondering if you're doing enough for your children?
  • Do you wish you had a better method for motivating your children? 
  • Are you drowning in curriculum choices?

Hi, I'm Leigh Ann. I'm a homeschooling mom of four sweet kiddos. I want to help you plan your next homeschool year with purpose and clarity. 

I haven't always planned my homeschool year with purpose and clarity. 

There was a time when I would buy curriculum without a second thought

I would find it on sale and reason that we might use it someday...

I'd tell myself that I may never find this particular curriculum for this price again...

And I would say, "Yes!" to anyone trying to clean out their home (and school) closets because free meant good, right?

I knew something had gone badly wrong when I started wishing my house would burn just so I didn't have to deal with my curriculum piles anymore.

I've lived through a house fire, and I know what it's like to have nothing except the clothes on your back. I didn't dream of this happening in my own home without understanding what I was wishing for.

But this is just how bad it had gotten for me. 

Buying curriculum without a clear understanding of what you actually need causes decision fatigue, drains your budget, and leaves you with a mess of curriculum that someone has to deal with.

And that someone is you.

That someone was me! 

Until one day I decided that I needed a better approach.

And after much prayer and thought, I emerged with a plan.

The last several years of homeschooling have been the best yet for my family, because I'm no longer assuming I need to do everything, buy everything...

Sure, my curriculum closet is still full (I'm slowly making my way out of my bad choices).

But there is hope!

There is growth!

The last few years, I haven't bought a single bit of a curriculum on a whim or without a clear purpose and plan.

Nor did have I bought curriculum that wouldn't accomplish the clear goals and plans I had for each of my children. 

Heck, I actually had clear goals for my homeschool!

I learned how to think more deeply about our homeschool (and it made all the difference). 

I no longer have to make decisions out of fear (fear of missing out, fear of not having enough, fear of not being enough), and I can now make decisions confidently because I know exactly what we are trying to accomplish in our homeschool and what tools we need to accomplish those goals.

You might be thinking: Great for you, Leigh Ann, but....

How can I get from where I am now to this place of freedom in my homeschool?

Lean in for a minute.

Because I want to tell you something that you really need to hear.

You can make the changes you want to make.

You are not in this alone, and we're going to get you through this.

You will not be overwhelmed forever - I promise!

You get to choose right now to stop accepting defeat. 

You get to choose right now to stop listening to the lies that are telling you that you don't have what it takes.

And you get to choose right now to take your rightful place as a life-giver in your home.

You were made for freedom, sister (Galatians 5:13), and those who look to Jesus shall never be ashamed (Psalm 34:5).

You are a woman, and you  were made to give life.

This is your family, and it is time that you start setting goals and making choices that align with your family's God-given priorities. Home educating our children is an enormous privilege, and I want you to do it joyfully!

It is time to:

Resolve to be intentional and live confidently in your decision to homeschool.

Resolve to maximize this season to its fullest potential, considering all the needs in your home. 

Resolve to let the Lord be the strongest influence in your family's life this school year. 

It is time you reclaim the life you and your family were created for.

So you can breathe life back into your home and into your community this year, so the question is....

Are you ready for a new way of homeschooling?

What People Are Saying About Your Intentional Family Homeschool Planning Guide

“Everything I need to think about for the year in ONE place!”

“I've been homeschooling with three kids now for 5 years. I love how the Homeschool Planning Guide has everything I need to consider and evaluate for the year in ONE place. It's nice to have it all written down and something I can refer to that helps me pick the best curriculum for MY KIDS, and not just the newest, eye-catching trend or what my neighbor down the street is using. One of my favorite things about this planning guide is the pages where my husband gives his input. I have been wanting him to be  more involved in our schooling, even though he doesn't do the day-to-day work, and THIS is just what I've been looking for. I'm looking forward to the whole family benefiting from this homeschool tool."

“Intentional questions to help you figure out your homeschool vision."

“As a new homeschool, work-from-home mom of three, I am so thankful that Leigh Ann put together this guide! She asks intentional questions to help you figure out what your homeschool vision is, so that you don't move into homeschooling without a plan and purpose. I really appreciate how she included a spot for an interview with your kids and also a section to hear from your husband, as homeschooling is truly a FAMILY thing! Thank you, Leigh Ann, for this invaluable resource."

About the Author

I’ll be honest…I’m not naturally organized.

I’m not naturally disciplined.

I’m not naturally good at making plans that matter.

I am an idealist to the core, and I flit from thing to thing with an ever-increasing appetite to experience everything life has to offer.

I don’t like being boxed into an idea, and I live my life with the mantra, “All plans can be changed!”

Living in chaos would be my reality if I didn't make an intentional, concerted effort to seek the Lord and make plans that matter.

The Your Intentional Family Homeschool Planning Guide is how I stay on track, setting goals, making plans, and following through on what God says is important this year in our homeschool. It's the planning guide I wish I had five years ago when I first started out, and I couldn't be more thrilled to share it with you. 

The Your Intentional Family Homeschool
Planning Guide is perfect for anyone

The Your Intentional Family Homeschool Planning Guide is made for all homeschool families - just getting started or seasoned, one child or many, stay-at-home-moms or work-outside-the-home-moms, entrepreneurs, married or not.

Whatever season of life you're in, whatever circumstances surround you, this is a homeschool planning system that will work for you. You  just need to be ready to stop living in a constant state of overwhelm, and start living the life God has created for you and your family

This is not just another homeschool resource that's going to sit on your (virtual) shelf collecting dust.

The Your Intentional Family Homeschool Planning Guide is designed to guide and mentor you in creating a home education plan that works for your family. It's like having a homeschool coach walking alongside you as you make your plans for the new school year, training you in spiritually guiding your family and allowing Him to direct your steps. 

The Your Intentional Family Homeschool Planning Guide will help you uncover the individual strengths of each of your children, consider your husband's role in your homeschool, and uncover the unique plan God has for your family each and every homeschool year.

But your planning guide isn't a full blown planner...

Right, it's not. This is a Homeschool Planning Guide. Not a full on daily homeschool planner. 

The reason for this is simple. There are plenty of free Homeschool Planners on the market. A quick Pinterest search will turn up oodles of option. 

Not to mention, each of our individual planning styles will be very different.

To be honest with you though, this planning guide is actually all I use to plan our homeschool year. It actually is my "Homeschool Planner."

Personally, I've found the traditional "daily/monthly planner" style to be more than I need, and if I do need a monthly or weekly spread for me as the teacher, I just print extra planning pages from my Made to Give Life Seasonal Goal Planner

I love the flexibility of making my own personalized Homeschool Planner, and this planning guide helps me include just what I need (nothing more, nothing less). 

The Pros List

  • Your planner becomes completely customizable.
  • You're not stuck with a homeschool planning system that doesn't work for you.

The Cons List

  • You will need to have access to a printer.
  • You may want to purchase a special binding system you don't already have (yet).
  • You don't get happy mail delivered to your doorstep. "(That really is a bummer.)
  • It can seem daunting at first if it's not something you're used to.
