    Are you a homeschool mom who needs organization?

    Once upon a time, I was a mom to two children, and I thought I led a fairly organized life. Then God called my husband and me to homeschool our children, and He blessed us with four more children. I also have a business that I run in my 'spare' time. So, it is safe to say that some of my organization flew out the window. I have had Marilyn Rockett's book on my shelf for a while, and after picking it up tonight, I am renewed and invigorated to make some organizational changes in my life. Her book also contains a hand CD-ROM to help make my organizing projects more manageable. This is a book that I bought. It is not just a book that was sent to me for review, and I would recommend it to any homeschool mom who needed a little help in organizing all the stuff that comes along with homeschooling. Marilyn is a Titus 2 woman, and I am so glad she wrote this book to help us get organized.

    Not just for homeschoolers!!

    This book is a wonderful book to inspire you to organize your life. It is not just for homeschoolers. It is for any woman who needs to de-clutter her home and her life. I immediately cleaned out two closets and out from under the bed. I organized my office and actually found some of the projects I had misplaced. I highly recommend this book!

    Great Resource

    Homeschooling mothers are prone to tons of questions. How can you be sure your children are learning everything they need to know? Why on earth wouldn¿t you want to send your children to school in the fall and be free of them for a few months? But it¿s this question: How do you manage to balance your home, school, and your family? that causes a homeschool mom to pause. Throwing clothes into the washer, browning hamburger for an easy hotdish, cleaning up the grape juice stain in the carpet while your seven year old is asking you how to spell organize and your twelve year old is wondering how to get his science kit out of the dog¿s mouth . Organize might be impossible to spell until you¿ve learned how to do it yourself. That¿s where Homeschooling at the Speed of Life: Balancing Home, School, and Family in the Real World comes in. Marilyn Rockett is the mother of four grown sons and she homeschooled three of them for fifteen years. Her wisdom, experience and reliance on God has given her the chance to share all of that in her new book. Marilyn writes in a manner that makes you expect to look up and see her sitting across from you as you chat over a cup of hot tea. Chapters such as Real-life Home Management teach you to establish priorities, take a hard look at what consumes your time, create running to-do lists with columns and reminds you to start small. Each chapter is full of practical ideas along with some of Marilyn¿s own personal stories. Marilyn also includes Stop, Look, Think sections at the end of each chapter for you to evaluate and determine what your next steps should be as well as encouraging verses in the devotions section. A CD-Rom with her File-a-Plan System is included. As a whole, Homeschooling at the Speed of Life: Balancing Home, School, and Family in the Real World gives the homeschooling mom a practical hands-on approach to getting organized with a biblical approach.
