How do I participate? We want you to share your momma heart without worrying about following a specific format. The Homeschool Mother’s Journal is a place for homeschooling moms to come each week to receive encouragement for life, homeschooling, homemaking and any other topic that is relevant to homeschooling families. We desire this to be a place where both working moms that homeschool and work-at-home homeschooling mommas can lift each other up and offer support.

Each week the co-hosts will choose a post or two that really touched us and will feature that post in the following week’s link-up! Check in next week: You might find your post being featured by our team!

You can read more about the Homeschool Mother’s Journal and grab a button for your blog over at Managing Your Blessings.

What if I don’t have a blog? The Homeschool Mother’s Journal isn’t just for blogging homeschool mamas: It’s for all homeschooling moms to grab a cup of coffee (or tea) and get connected with moms like you through the blog posts that are shared each week. We encourage you to comment, ask questions and share prayer needs. This is YOUR community — we’d love for you to come and participate however you can!

Now it’s time to link up and join other moms in sharing what’s on your heart this week!
