Hannah Diller Here in the Lovely Woods

Have you ever read a book that made you want to reach through its pages, grab the author in a warm bear hug, and then sit down with her (or him) for a cozy cup of coffee? Yes? How about 25 authors? I felt like I was sitting in large, but still personal, support group meeting, with a chair for everyone drawn into an inviting circle. These 25 moms write honestly, beautifully, humorously, and wisely about real life as the main facilitators of their children’s education. — Hannah Diller of Here in the Lovely Woods

Lisa Rupertus As They Grow Up

This book is an excellent resource for anyone thinking about homeschooling. It is a in depth Q & A format with 25 seasoned homeschoolers. Asking the questions you really want to know. This is my first year homeschooling and I think I’ve read every book on the subject. That said this book was refreshingly different and really dug deep into what homeschooling is like for families. — Lisa of As They Grow Up

Heather Lane Townsend House

I love that this book has so many different ways to look at homeschooling.  From a family who spent 3 years traveling on bicycles from Alaska to Argentina to missionaries to homesteaders, and everyone in between.  It shows me that my family does not need to fit into one specific “homeschool” category.  It is all about the individual attention that we can give our children, which is one of the biggest reasons I decided to homeschool. — Heather of Townsend House

Candace Crabtree His Mercy Is New

Reading the e-book, You Can Do It Too, is like sitting down with a circle of friends who are all experienced homeschoolers, a cup of coffee or sweet tea in your hand, and hearing it all:  the good, the bad and the ugly. {grin} Curriculum choices, what works for us, what doesn’t work for us, our daily routine, our backgrounds, how we chose homeschooling…and more. I don’t know about you, but I love “chatting homeschooling” with friends. I love hearing what is working for others. I love hearing about new ideas, new resources, and new ways to try and teach my children! — Candace Crabtree of His Mercy Is New

“As a homeschooling mom of four boys, I can tell you that each day is a real adventure. When we first started this journey, the road was wide open. Each new day presented a million different ways we could go. I was excited, but so very overwhelmed. There were no shortages of online resources or advice from other more seasoned homeschoolers, but what I craved was truth and honesty about the lifestyle of homeschooling and how to balance it all. I needed to hear real stories written by real people compiled in one place. This book does just that. You Can Do it Too! is for anyone who wants to know more about what homeschooling is really like on a daily basis, the highs and lows and everything in between. And it’s for the homeschooler whose already walking this path and just needs to know they are not alone. Sharing our stories can be such an encouragement and a source of comfort in knowing that we’ve made the right decisions for our families. I am so thankful to be a part of such an amazing project!” — Megan Spires House of the Rising Sons

Nikki Hughes Intentional By Grace

“I loved being able to skim through the book to see the curriculum that everyone does (or doesn’t) use. Especially some of my favorite bloggers! It is written in nice bite-sized chunks and I have enjoyed reading each perspective on specific questions that I have had. This is a great resource for us homeschooling mamas!” Nikki from Intentional By Grace

“I spend several hours each week responding to questions and comments from homeschooling families who aren’t certain they can “do this homeschooling thing.”  YCDIT removes the mystery of homeschooling and replaces it with the tangible day-in and day-out of all different types of homeschooling families.  YCDIT is a valuable resource for anyone considering homeschooling for the first time.” —  Heather of HeatherSanders.com
