Coming to NGHS: Homeschool Mother’s Journal

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure policy for details.

Early in my homeschooling journey, I realized that it was going to be really important to build open & honest community with other homeschooling moms so we could encourage and inspire one another. I happen to live in a town with a large homeschooling community, however it’s often still hard to make real connections with other moms when we’re all busy shuttling our kids to activities and field trips — and even harder to set aside time just for moms to fellowship.

That’s when the Homeschool Mother’s Journal became my weekly “coffee date” with homeschool moms across the country who were willing to share their journey with me.

What is the Homeschool Mother’s Journal? HMJ is a weekly (Saturday) blog link-up providing a place for homeschooling moms to share our hearts as we journey together. Beginning next Saturday, January 17, 2015, NextGen Homeschool is joining the following blogs to co-host the Homeschool Mother’s Journal Link-up: So You Call Yourself a Homeschooler?Contented at HomeThe Heart of Michelle, and Abundant Life.


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 every 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!

So join us next week on January 17th: Share what’s on your heart, and sit back and relax while you read about the real life homeschooling journeys of other moms just like you. We can’t wait to hear from you!

  1. You have made my year! Thank you so much for joining in to host. I have been participating in the journal for four years now and ‘lost’ the weekly link up! I have been looking for it for the past eight weeks :'(

    1. So glad we could help you reconnect Chareen! It’s great to know you’ll be joining us. We look forward to hearing from you! Spread the word about the linkup’s new home if you have a chance. Thanks!
