Product Description

You weren't meant to do this on your own. Whether it's day one or year ten of your homeschooling journey, you can draw from this well of wisdom and encouragement!

Homeschooling can be rich and rewarding. But it can also be exhausting and lonely. You may have questions or doubts swirling in your head or from outside family and friends:

I am not a teacher · I don't know where to begin · Will my kids have friends? · Will I ever have time for me? · Will this get any easier? · Should I keep doing this? · And more.

These are good thoughts and questions. It's important to consider them and find answers. In Hope for Your Homeschool, September McCarthy—seasoned homeschooling mom of ten children and twelve grandchildren—addresses the fears and concerns that accompany homeschooling. And she provides a successful, well-tested plan! Through biblical insight and personal stories, September shows us how to create a culture at home that will fortify hearts and sharpen young minds. September gives us practical steps to follow and mistakes to avoid.

Your days will be infused with joy and strength. As you draw from the wisdom of this homeschooling friend, your mothering heart will find hope, guidance, and encouragement for the daily work of homeschooling well.

About the Author

September-A McCarthy
As a homeschooling mom to ten children, SEPTEMBER MCCARTHY has encouraged and equipped families across the country on the Mom to Mom Podcast, the Dear Mom Podcast, at national conferences, and in her book Why Motherhood Matters. She can be found directing a large hybrid homeschool program, and creating homeschooling resources for her business, September and Co. September loves spending time with her grandchildren and ministering to all demographics of women in her community and around the world.


"In Hope for Your Homeschool, September McCarthy extends a compassionate hand to every family educating children at home. With all the wisdom a mother of ten and grandmother of many can possess, September delves into the most common doubts and concerns that cloud the homeschooling journey—questions of adequacy, socialization, personal time, and the overarching fear of whether it's all worth it. 

This book is not just a beacon of encouragement, but a transformative tool. She reminds us that we can turn our homeschool from a daunting task to a joyful journey through biblical insights, heartfelt stories, and practical guidance. Her approach helps us see beyond immediate struggles and embrace a vision that's not only about academic excellence but also about shaping hearts and minds for a purposeful life.

September's words remind us that homeschooling is more than an educational choice. It's a journey of faith, love, and profound growth—for us and our kids! She reassures us that, despite the challenges, the rewards of homeschooling are monumental. Hope for Your Homeschool is a faith-filled companion to uplift and inspire you to find joy, strength, and, most importantly, hope in your homeschooling adventure."
TRICIA GOYER, homeschooling mom of ten and bestselling author of ninety books, including Homeschool Basics: How to Get Started, Keep Motivated, and Bring Out the Best in Your Kids

"Homeschooling. I've been at it for a long time now, having home­schooled seven kids over twenty-four years—and as a veteran homeschool mom, I can tell you that this is the book I wish I had read when we first started homeschooling. Drawing from decades of experience, September points new homeschool parents back to the reason they made such a monumental decision and reminds veterans that the journey is worth finishing well. Whether you need encouragement to stay the course, practical advice, or a hand to hold as you embrace homeschooling your children, this book is for you."
