“I love that we can pull a lesson together so quickly. I am not an outdoor girl, but Holly has inspired me with new ways to engage my children and they are loving it. I treasure the memories we are making together. These books will serve us well for years and are a must have for any family needing encouragement along the way!”

What will you Discover?

Nature Study

Nature is calling right outside your back door! Holly shares step by step on how to weave it into your everyday life. Nature inspires curiosity, builds focus and brings calm to a child's life.

Connect with your community

Your community is filled with resources to bring experiential learning to your finger tips. Holly shows you where to find them, how to use them and  keep your children engaged.

Real life stories

Can homeschool really be like that? Yes it can. Sharing our successes and failures will help you realize home education is a process. Laugh at our chicken coop debacle,  tear up as I learn to accept my son at his level, let your mouth water as we pick our own strawberries and learn to can jam.

You CAN do this! 

We need each other on this journey. You can free your family from the confines of a curriculum box. Learn from your community, build amazing friendships and discover the world around you. An education your children will remember long after they leave your home. Break free and blaze new trails!
