Become a Brave Learner Launch Partner!

The Brave Learner

THE BRAVE LEARNER: Finding Everyday Magic in Homeschool, Learning, and Life is almost here! Are you itching to get a copy in hand & shout its magic from the rooftops?!

Become an exclusive Brave Learner Launch Partner!

Hurry—doors close on January 6th.

Your enthusiasm for my new book is deeply appreciated. Thanks for the link love, sweet messages, and for believing in this book I wrote for you that I can’t wait to share.

We’ve invited Brave Writer’s biggest fans to rally as a Facebook group and help us launch the book (publication day is Feb. 5). Members have been showered with memes to share, a virtual coffee date, prizes, and more. We love our Launch Partners!

The group is a virtual party of cheerleaders dedicated to sharing The Brave Learner philosophy.

You don’t have to be a blogger or entrepreneur to join. Simply being excited about the book and willing to share it with friends of yours is enough.

My not-so-secret mission? To change homeschool culture.

  • I want a homeschool world where parents get to experiment without fear of criticism.
  • I want homeschool parents to feel valued as adults, not just as teachers.
  • I want children to discover their powers of learning anything.
  • I want a culture of support between a variety of methods and philosophies.
  • I want parents to know how to create a healthy home life, not just an academically sound one.
  • In January I’ll share several Facebook Lives–exclusively in the Launch group–to talk about these ideas.

The joining session ends January 6th.

January 7th kicks off a month-long marketing party with our dedicated partners! This includes four weeks of incredible resources, tips, ideas, and fun discussion about how to best spread the word about THE BRAVE LEARNER.

Plus there will be prizes and very special gift for all launch partners.

So…are you in?!

For a limited time only, we’re accepting new members
before the main event in January.

Come on in!

About The Brave Learner

Parents want their children to have academic success. Children want to be happy. Can’t we get these two desires together: learning that develops skill and creates joy?

How do parents nurture a love of learning amid childish chaos, parental self-doubt, the flu, and state academic standards?

The Brave Learner tackles this conundrum with humor and lots of help! In this book, you’ll learn about:

  • The 12 Super Powers of learning and how to use each one (practical ideas!)
  • How to create a cozy home designed to withstand the active learning adventure of your family
  • How your adult learning journey fuels your homeschool—and how to harness its power.

Creating a love of learning in your family is as easy as lighting a fire. You just need a book of matches. The Brave Learner is that book.
