Although I’m a NextGen homeschooler and had a positive personal experience with homeschooling, I struggled with many of the same doubts and fears — the “big fat lies” — that all homeschool mamas face, and I didn’t homeschool from the start. In fact, it took me several years to grow my faith and develop confidence to step forward down the homeschooling path I knew God was leading me to. What a difference a homeschooling resource like “bloom” would have made for me back then!
What is “bloom” all about?
“bloom” is a self-paced online video course created by Alicia Michelle of Vibrant Homeschooling designed to provide YOU with a practical — yet very personal — growing experience. Whether you’re a new homeschooler who needs a confidence boost or a veteran homeschooler in need of refreshment, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for in the “bloom” online course. Alicia comes alongside you with a step-by-step approach to overcoming common challenges all homeschool mamas face with practical, achievable solutions.
The “bloom” online course, which you can complete at your own pace, includes At-Home Discovery Packets that accompany each lesson and give you tools to personalize and apply what you’ve learned. Plus the interactive “bloom” Facebook group led by Alicia provides you with a built-in support community to encourage and inspire you during the growing process, and you can jump in and participate anytime.
This past month I completed the “bloom” online course with a team of top homeschool mama bloggers, and what a blessing it has been! Although I am now somewhat of a veteran homeschooler (we just finished our fifth year), I learned a lot from Alicia — especially in areas that I still struggle with, such as comparison and perfectionism. I was really encouraged by her personal experience and inspired by her strategies to help all homeschool mamas “bloom” where we are planted!
What will I learn?
The “bloom” course gives practical, customized solutions that address the biggest stealers of homeschool joy. These strategies include everything from:
- facing the big fat lies;
- managing ever-changing routines;
- discovering everyday true soul rest;
- dealing with perfectionism, comparison and anger;
- handling the ongoing needs and (seemingly relentless) outside opinions;
- discovering lasting joy (even on the toughest days);
- and more!
