Reviews - What do customers think about Homeschooling At The Speed Of Life w/CD?

Excellent Tool  Sep 26, 2007
This is an excellent tool for homeschooling parents. I especially liked the real-life solutions and devotional options after each chapter. If you need to get jump started on your organization of home and family life, this is the book for you-whether or not you homeschool. Any household can apply these ideas and solutions and have a happy, more productive outcome.
A Great Resource!  Sep 11, 2007
Homeschooling mothers are prone to tons of questions. How can you be sure your children are learning everything they need to know? Why on earth wouldn't you want to send your children to school in the fall and be free of them for a few months? But it's this question: How do you manage to balance your home, school, and your family? that causes a homeschool mom to pause.

Throwing clothes into the washer, browning hamburger for an easy hotdish, cleaning up the grape juice stain in the carpet while your seven year old is asking you how to spell organize and your twelve year old is wondering how to get his science kit out of the dog's mouth . Organize might be impossible to spell until you've learned how to do it yourself.

That's where Homeschooling at the Speed of Life: Balancing Home, School, and Family in the Real World comes in. Marilyn Rockett is the mother of four grown sons and she homeschooled three of them for fifteen years. Her wisdom, experience and reliance on God has given her the chance to share all of that in her new book.

Marilyn writes in a manner that makes you expect to look up and see her sitting across from you as you chat over a cup of hot tea. Chapters such as Real-life Home Management teach you to establish priorities, take a hard look at what consumes your time, create running to-do lists with columns and reminds you to start small. Each chapter is full of practical ideas along with some of Marilyn's own personal stories.

Marilyn also includes Stop, Look, Think sections at the end of each chapter for you to evaluate and determine what your next steps should be as well as encouraging verses in the devotions section.

A CD-Rom with her File-a-Plan System is included. As a whole, Homeschooling at the Speed of Life: Balancing Home, School, and Family in the Real World gives the homeschooling mom a practical hands-on approach to getting organized with a biblical approach.
What a help  Aug 25, 2007
This book is just what I needed! In case just the book wasn't enough, Marilyn is hosting a book study on a yahoo group ( starting Sept 2007 and ending in Nov. I am so excited! I know this will become a reference book for our homeschool and I hope to reread it each summer - because I know it will be one of those books that I will glean something new each time I read it!
Good Biblical Instruction  Jul 3, 2007
This book is very good for the disorganized homeschooling parent. I loved that it was so Biblically based and gave scripture for everything. I would highly recommend it!
nothing earth shattering here  Jun 12, 2007
I thought this book was really more about getting organized in general rather than focusing on homeschooling. I didn't really come away with many new ideas. The cd is helpful I guess, but again it all seemed so basic. I thought it was just okay.
