The Homeschool Experiment is the very first novel written especially for homeschool moms. Within these pages, you will meet a normal mother of normal children facing a normal, chaotic year of trying to figure out what it means to homeschool and love her family.

You will laugh, nod your head in agreement, and feel encouraged knowing you’re not alone. In fact, there's even homeschool group study questions in the back of the book so you can share it with your friends.
Julianne Miller feels God nudging her to homeschool her three children. The only problem is, she has no idea what she’s doing. But, how hard could first grade possibly be? If you are a mother, homeschooling or not, you’ll be encouraged when you join Julianne and her co-op friends as they navigate through a hard but humorous year of diapers, dinners, husbands, meltdowns, and math lessons. And that’s just September.

About the Author

Charity Hawkins (although not her real name) is a wife and mother of three children. She makes her home in Oklahoma where she homeschools…though she still has no idea what she’s doing. When she’s not homeschooling her children, she’s probably enjoying a Thai iced tea, reading a book, or working on her new hobby…making dinner.

Could become an annual read to regain perspective.

This book is chick-lit colliding with the reality of homeschooling. From the first pages I was smiling and nodding along. The author uses a month by month approach to chronicle this first-person view of homeschooling from the fictional (but oh so real) eyes of a mom of three who's trying to do the right thing and overwhelmed by all the options and doing it right. Julianne Miller is the kind of young mom I love to sit down next to and encourage. Since I can't do that for all homeschooling mamas, this book is a great break. You'll nod along, think 'yep, that happens in my family' and more. Most of all, you'll be encouraged! The back is filled with practical helps, but this is a novel. As a former homeschooled kid and now homeschooling momma to four, I can attest that it's one that hits all the themes and angst of a homeschool year.

This was such a joy to read! It not only old the truth of homeschooling in a funny, down to earth way, it was also full of great advice and helpful resources.

It was just what I needed in this season of my life. I love how Jules was not "perfect" and she put her perspective where it needed to be. Great Read!!!!

This is a wonderful, easy reading book. Whether you homeschool or not, you can relate to almost any portion of this book to real life with young children! I have already lent in to several friends.
