A little something different...

I was recently given the opportunity to review a book of devotions for homeschooling mothers, and even though I don't typically blog on non fiction or devotionals, I eagerly jumped at the chance. See, I was homeschooled the majority of mychildhood and youth (4th-8th grade, then again from 11-12th) and am considering homeschooling my daughter one day in the future. So this really got my attention.

And guess what ? This sweet book does NOT disappoint. It's full of catchy tidbits, sound wisdom, Scripture, and real life, heartwarming stories that truly inspire, encourage, and invigorate. These short devo's are typically one page, so they're very quick to read for busy moms-on-the-go, yet linger in your heart all day...

Here's the info and product description for SCHOOL IS WHERE THE HOME IS by Anita Mellott

An estimated 2 million children are homeschooled in the United States. This is a devotional for those dedicated parents. Mellott’s 180 anecdotal devotionals explore specific homeschooling issues and present biblical truths to guide parents through challenging times.
