The Homeschool Alliance is All New in 2018!

While you’ve been busy homeschooling your kids, we’ve been busy redesigning the entire platform for the Homeschool Alliance—and it is GORGEOUS!

We’re moving the Alliance onto the Brave Writer website AND it will be streamlined for ease of use, conversation, and study.

Here’s what you can look forward to:

  • A stocked library of amazing teachings (video, audio, readings) ranging from personal enrichment to the science of learning to family life (and more!—over two years’ worth of monthly courses)
  • A year of self care support emails whether you join for a month or all twelve
  • Monthly webinars with Julie, Stephanie, and Jeanne (the coaches!) with an easy to find LIVE button to make participating in the webinars as simple as a click of the mouse!

  • Julie’s Coaching Notebook (Free downloads worth $50 to help you homeschool with power!)
  • Personal attention for your struggles, questions, and needs in Community Coaching by our members and official coaching staff (Stephanie and Jeanne—veteran homeschoolers with over 50 years combined experience as homeschool mothers and leaders)

The Homeschool Alliance

In other words: the awesome is on its way to you!

Enrollment will open on January 1, 2018 with a special offer for those who jump in as we launch the new site (reduced prices through January 31).

I’ll be sharing a lot more via Facebook LIVE and Instagram LIVE (be sure to follow for notifications).

If you are a current Alliance member, there is a new post in the Master Class all about the transition just for you!


January’s Theme: Rediscover a Love of Learning

Join us as we explore how to cultivate a love of learning in your family as you round the bend into the new year! We’ll look at some of the principles found in the Finnish approach to education, and we’ll discuss how to create a home context for your kids to find and own their passions!

We’ve got a webinar planned as well as an audio lecture to be released later in the month, and several readings. Can’t wait to help you GROW as a home educator.

Seriously excited about the future of the Homeschool Alliance!

December in the Alliance

December in the Homeschool Alliance is all about the Gift of Acceptance

“For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain.”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

What better gift can you give yourself than the Gift of Acceptance? Join us in the Homeschool Alliance for December where we will explore the idea of acceptance and how it can affect our children, ourselves and our homeschools.

Let us hold space for you during this busy holiday season when it is most needed!

We’ll delve into questions such as:

  • What does acceptance mean to you?
  • How do our expectations of ourselves and of our kids affect our experience of what is happening in our homeschools?
  • How can we learn to let go and trust the process in all its messiness and uncertainty?

What you can expect:

  • Live webinar discussion with Julie, Stephanie and Jeanne
  • Readings and conversations that get you thinking
  • One Thing Challenge with creative ideas for how to add music into your homeschool
  • Weekly self-care reminders (because you count too!)
  • A welcoming and supportive community

Join us in December!

You can join anytime and leave anytime. Let us support you as we hash out parenting, learning, and living this lifestyle we call homeschooling.


BIG Changes are Coming!

Expect some exciting changes to The Homeschool Alliance this January as we unveil a completely redesigned space! A New Alliance for the New Year!

More on that to come…

November in The Homeschool Alliance

November in the Alliance: Ages & Stages
November in The Homeschool Alliance is all about the ages and stages of growth in our children! Turns out that the physical, social, and emotional development of our kids are completely entwined with their academic development.

Join us as we explore what a holistic approach to education that honors your uniquely developing child could look like.

We’ll delve into questions such as:

  • In a standards-based world, how do we hold space for our individual child?
  • Is there such a thing as an “average” child?
  • How can we learn to look past expectations and embrace our children where they are?

What you can expect in November:

  • Two webinars: One focusing on the 12-and-under set and—by popular demand—one all about teens
  • Readings and discussions that get you thinking
  • One Thing “Flames of Light” Challenge to do with your kids
  • Weekly self-care reminders (because you count too)
  • Welcoming and supportive community

November in the Alliance: Ages & Stages

The Homeschool Alliance is a fantastic way to grow as a home educator in all the ways you really care about—deeper engagement with learning, membership in a community of like-hearted home educators, and the space to reconnect with what drew you to homeschooling in the first place.

Give us a try in November! You can join anytime and leave anytime. We will support you as we hash out parenting, learning, and living this lifestyle we call homeschooling.

October in the Homeschool Alliance: Rethink Motivation

October in the Homeschool Alliance: Rethink Motivation

Who among us hasn’t worried at times about our kids’ motivation?

If your days sometime feel like a struggle to pull your kid through the learning process, then October in the The Homeschool Alliance is for you! Join us as we “Rethink Motivation” and explore how we can let go of our fears for our kids and utilize their own inherent interests and desires to help them become engaged in the world around them.

We’ll explore ideas from Gretchen Rubin’s new book, The Four Tendencies, to gain insights into our kids and consider the myriad of other factors that come into play when it comes to motivation. Learn how you can work with your children to get things done, instead of feeling as if you are constantly working against them. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even learn a little bit about yourself in the process!

Our live webinars are great fun and a wonderful opportunity to ask all your specific questions about your particular kids.

Join us in October! You can join any time and leave any time. We will support you as we hash out parenting, learning, and living this lifestyle we call homeschooling.
