If you’re a homeschool mom who is always wanting to make things better for her family, especially with creating a positive learning environment—you’ve found your people!
If you’re a homeschool mom who feels frazzled and torn in different directions, and are kind of unsure if this homeschool thing is really working—you’ve found your people too!
Most homeschools are obsessed with doing things right, but that means competing with the school system; a place that is well financed and loaded with resources. Plus, they have multiple teachers specializing in a variety of subjects.
The truth is that you need a different way to educate (which you probably already know), but you also need a different way to organize your homeschool. Jesus observed that you can’t put 'new wine into old wineskins', which means that you can’t put a new approach into an old way of doing things.
Homeschooling is ‘new’ when compared to typical schools, and it simply can’t work the way the schools try to do it (and commonly fail).
I HATE doing things the hard way. It’s not only a waste of time and energy, it’s STUPID.
Yeah, I hate stupid—but mostly in me. The dumbest thing I used to do was to read things over and over until they were memorized. Let's learn the names of the Great Lakes: Erie, Superior, Huron, Ontario, Michigan… Erie, Superior, Huron, Ontario, Michigan… Erie, Superior, Huron, Ontario, Michigan…
Guh—it got tedious and tiring! Then, I learned about mnemonics; a cool word for memory tricks.
H O M E S — Remember that!
Wow—I got it!
So, there Jody (a.k.a. Lovey, to the grandkids) and I were homeschooling our 5 children, trying to teach multiple subjects, to multiple kids, at multiple ages, while needing to be an expert in multiple areas. Oh, in a home, in a room, around one table.
Ever felt that kind of mountainous challenge with your homeschool?
But then, I learned about systems—and just like H O M E S, it all came down to a few simple hacks that meant we could educated all of our kids by spending a combined Mommy/Daddy effort of 30 Minutes Day.
If you are worn out, or just know there has got to be a better way, then you have found your people! We are AMBITIOUS for our kids, but LAZY in our efforts. Enter the birth of
THE 30 MINUTES A DAY HOMESCHOOL SYSTEM
(Your Kids Will Be Working A Lot Longer: It Is School)
Really, that was pretty much the amount of time Lovey and I spent in combined time helping and teaching the kids.

Lovey and I have 5 kids (Tripp, Laura, Forrest, Holmes, and Brooks) we homeschooled from birth to college. All of them graduated college with excellent grades, are married, well employed, and contributing to their families, churches, neighborhoods, and friendships. They all paid their own way through college and have added 8 grandchildren to the clan (so far). The key is that we finally set up a system that took us 30 Minutes a Day (the kids spent 5 hours a day in school) to teach them how to teach themselves. We basically 'draw back the curtain' in this course and show you how we did it.
My family has had a very difficult two years and I had let a lot of things slide. We're on the fourth week of my buckling down and getting firm (even strict) with our kids about school, chores, etc. I went through Fred's course on the 30 Minute Homeschool and that helped me a lot. While I have 8 kiddos, two of my boys have really helped illustrate the power. . . But I have seen so many lightbulbs go on and most days are progressively better (sometimes it's two steps forward, one step back).
