Homeschooling With Confidence With Apologia Educational Ministries // A Review

Having just completed my 4th full year of homeschooling, I am still considered a newbie. When I first began this journey, I had so many questions. As a matter of fact, I still do. Some of these questions are: What curriculum is best? How will I juggle homeschooling and everything else I have to do? What about organization? Where will I get support? Back then, I could have used a product like How to HOMESCHOOL with Stunning Confidence, Contagious Joy, and Amazing Focus (DVD & Coursebook) from Apologia Educational Ministries to help me when I started my journey.

Over the last several weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to watch the videos in this course and look over the workbook at length. What a wonderful blessing!

How to HOMESCHOOL with Stunning Confidence, Contagious Joy, and Amazing Focus (DVD & Coursebook)
How to HOMESCHOOL with Stunning Confidence, Contagious Joy, and Amazing Focus (DVD & Coursebook) consists of 15 very practical and short sessions (15-20 minutes) presented by two very seasoned and knowledgeable home educators, Rachael Carman and Leslie Nunnery. Not only do they present the material in a very practical and understandable way, as I watched the videos I felt as if I had invited a friend into my living room to help me on my journey. They speak with such grace and bring peace about the topic of homeschooling and all that is involved right into your living room.

The two DVDs in this course cover topics such as:

  • Setting goals
  • Finding support
  • Choosing curriculum
  • Practical How-To’s
  • Organization (your stuff and your day)
  • Tips from veterans
  • Family matters (marriage and all the rest)
  • How to deal with Opposition

and so much more! Take a moment to watch the first session below.

A coursebook is included consisting of short readings for each chapter, an assignment and a place to take notes. I read the sections in the book before watching each corresponding DVD session, and worked through the assignments after each session. I did not complete every assignment yet, but I know that they are going to be very helpful as I continue this journey. The assignments can take as little time or as much time as you desire. The more thought you put into them, the more you will get out of them. Make sure you find a quiet place to listen to your thoughts and feelings as you process through each one.

I really appreciated the session about curriculum. I cannot tell you how much time and money I’ve wasted over the last few years by following what the crowd was doing, not listening to my inner-gut, or not understanding the bent of my child, how he learns. I would have saved myself a few grey hairs had I had the sound, practical advice of Rachel and Leslie. They really helped me to understand that it’s okay to take my time in selecting the best curriculum for my child. They stress how much more important my relationship with my child is than any money I could ever invest in curriculum. If something isn’t working, they encourage you to be courageous and flexible enough to make a change. I’ve been doing it all wrong, but now I feel empowered to make some necessary changes.

Whether you are a new homeschooler, or a veteran, How to HOMESCHOOL with Stunning Confidence, Contagious Joy, and Amazing Focus (DVD & Coursebook) from Apologia Educational Ministries will bring you helpful insight and sound wisdom on the subject of homeschooling.
