Have you ever considered homeschooling your child because they are being bullied, you are a military family not wanting to have your kids switch curriculums as much, and/or for religious reasons??
As a former military family, homeschooling was becoming more popular as we were leaving the military. Many military families had opted to homeschool their children through online programs such as Connections Academy or K12 (online public schools) so they would not have to take their kids in and out of school with the frequent moves. At one point our family had considered one of these online education programs (and we may still in the future).
Tune in to this fascinating conversation with the Co-Founder, Executive Director, and Director of Research for the Coalition for Responsible Home Education, Rachel Coleman, as she discusses her experience as a homeschooled human, where homeschooling needs to improve, the concept of unschooling, and why accountability is essential (and needed) in the homeschool communities.
Rachel Coleman is the executive director of the Coalition for Responsible Home Education. She was homeschooled from kindergarten and high school and became interested in homeschool reform while studying the history of children and childhood in graduate school. She is an instructor at Indiana University and is working on her dissertation on evangelical concerns about the public schools from the 1920s through the 1980s. She is the mother of two children and lives in Bloomington, Indiana.

I love mermaids! One day as I was browsing instagram I came across a beautiful mermaid posted by effyourbeautystandards. I reposted the awesome mermaid and the artist, lizzie, responded by thanking me for reposting! After stalking her on Etsy, I saw that she made ugly Christmas sweaters and inspirational art. One of these pieces of art had an interesting quote from St Julian of Norwich "Our Savior is our True Mother in whom we are endlessly born and out of whom we never come." I had never heard of Christ referred to as our mother... so I had to find out more about lizzie, what was inspiring her art & more!
elizabeth (lizzie) mcmanus enjoys challenging cisheteropatriarchal linguistic norms by lower-casing her name. She is a proud graduate of Mount Holyoke College (Summa cum laude) where she earned a Bachelor's in religion with a concentration on gender and sexuality. She's lived all over the world and still is not quite sure what life looks like with a permanent address. Currently, she is wrapping up a Masters of Theological Studies at Duke, with a heart full of hope to be ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church.
In the meantime, though, she teaches painting classes, makes art, re-reads Harry Potter, and smothers her two cats and one spouse with a lot of love. You can find her at www.elizabethmcmanus.com, on twitter as lizziemcmizzie, and on Etsy in the DoodlesBylizzie shop!
Being a mom has been one of the most difficult, challenging, rewarding, confusing and satisfying jobs, or lifework, I currently have. I consider myself a pretty average mom, I’m not passionate about being a mom, but I do have passion and love for my kids.
When a previous guest from another podcast I host, suggested I connect with Kirsten of the Marvelous Moms Club, I was hesitant to contact her. I believed she would be one of those Pinterest moms that I secretly aspired to be, but epically failed at. When we finally connected, I realized I was: 1. wrong & 2. being judgmental.
Kirsten is the creator and host of the Marvelous Moms Club podcast. She is a mom to three beautiful amazing children who have taken her on a very fun and crazy roller coaster ride through one of the most rewarding and challenging jobs she’s ever had.
Join Kirsten and I as talk about her family’s journey to live life on their own terms, how the Marvelous Moms Club was born, and how she is working on improving her corner of the world.
