The Quick-Start Guide to Brave Homeschool Schedules

The Quick-Start Guide to Brave Homeschool Schedules #homeschool #homeschooling  #homeschoolbravely

Do your homeschool days feel like an endless exercise in treading water but you look around and see no one else flailing--as if everyone has learned the secret to successful days but you?

Is there constant animosity between you and Monday morning?

Do you feel like a hamster on a wheel, running at full speed, but getting nowhere fast?

If so, then perhaps you need to re-order your days so that your school schedule works for your home and not against it.


I’d invite you to grab my Quick-Start Guide to Brave Homeschool Schedules. It’s full of my best tips and tricks for planning a school year.

In this 52-page digital eGuide, I share some specific reasons why you should schedule your days (in case you need a little convincing), show you how to make a skeletal annual calendar, and guide you as you create any one of the four most popular types of daily homeschool schedules in order that you might be able to squeeze every bit of learning out of your day.

Let me show you how to enjoy school again. Step-by-simple-step.


This guide will tenderly walk you toward the finish line so that you don’t have to sprint there at full bore.

I’m not just spouting out spammy sales lingo here.
I wouldn’t do that to you.

I created this eGuide with you, Homeschool Mom, in mind. But I packed it with the very same systems that I’ve used while planning the past twelve years of my homeschool journey.

To be honest, several of those years were easy-breezy with little to no outside commitments, while others (like this current one) felt like the sky unzipped and rained down one giant interruption after another.

Case in point: Over the past three months, my family has moved twice. Right this very moment, more than half our belongings are in storage, and because of many work-at-home and ministry commitments (like writing a book and launching a podcast), we've tallied only about a dozen “normal” homeschool days.

But even in the midst of all this overwhelm, our homeschool has never suffered. We are right on track to end the school year with delight instead of defeat--to tie up all the loose ends and check all the boxes. In other words, neither my kids nor I am at all behind and will cross the finish line without having to drag school into the summer with us. After May 31st, we’ll not be doing one single math problem or looking for one more prepositional phrase.

Because we won’t need to. We’ll have completed everything right on time.

How? you ask.

Because instead of launching the school year by throwing a bunch of good intentions at a page, hoping they’ll stick, I started with a very concrete plan. I carved out a few weeks last summer to focus on mapping my year.

I planned our entire schedule.

That’s not to say that I wrote out a minute-by-minute, play-by-play of our learning, but that I laid the foundation---I set the scaffolding in place in order that our days could take a more successful shape no matter how chaotic they might become later on in the school year.

I’ve been planning our year this way for over a decade and know that without fail fragile days will come, interruptions will happen, the plan will have to be forfeited at times. But I also know that’s the beauty of having a plan: I can set homeschool on the back burner when necessary in order to right my tipsy life, but then get right back at it with little to no effort because the plan provides direction.

My plan is always set in ink, not stone, and allows me to steer the day well even when the chaos of life veers me off course now and then.

Some people think plans are constricting. Limiting. That they weigh-down real learning.
I disagree.

A well-made plan provides freedom, providing a built-in defense when you feel bullied by the clock or crushed by the chaos of the day.

You, too, can end each year in victory instead of always feeling like a victim. Grab The Quick-Start Guide to Brave Homeschool Schedules.

It will give you the direction you need to create a made-to-order homeschool schedule that will work for your home and not against it.

Rest assured, this is not a my-way-or-the-highway kind of plan. I would never lay my homeschool over yours like a template expecting it to fit. I know that it won’t. You have a unique home, unique kids, and a unique set of life circumstances--three very good reasons why you need a unique plan.

The quick-steps I give you in this eGuide can be used for any method of education you prescribe to, any kind of curriculum you have purchased, and any personality type you’ve been blessed with. (Let’s face it, we’re not all type As. Some of us, myself included, are barely even type Zs.)
