Parents all over the country are waking up to the benefits of homeschooling.
Because it’s plain to see all the positive aspects of it: customized curriculum, enhanced relationships between parents and their kids—not to mention homeschooled children have higher levels of academic achievement than their state school peers, all while living in the safety and values of their family day in and day out.
With crisis after crisis—whether it’s COVID, violence, or declining performance—government schools continue to deteriorate. And it’s our children who are stuck in the middle of it all, looking to us to provide a learning environment that’s safe, secure, and enriching.
Homeschool Awakening is dedicated to demystifying homeschool culture, debunking the myths constantly repeated to justify government schools, teaching parents that they can start homeschooling now, and encouraging parents that it’s not that hard to begin.
We want to help parents discover the richness and freedom in homeschooling.
With our absolutely FREE guide, you can get started TODAY.
If you’re a parent contemplating homeschooling, let us encourage you to take action! Once you’re familiar with how it’s done, there’s no reason to delay any longer.
After years of working in the homeschooling environment, we’ve developed a series of simple steps you can take in order to be successful in your homeschooling endeavors. Our free step-by-step guide expounds on each of them individually to get you up and running in the right direction.
Immediately, we encourage everyone embarking on this journey to put down on paper their why. What are your personal motivations to homeschool your children? Is it because you want to provide a more enriching environment? A more customized curriculum? Or do you want to make sure their education is imparting more family-positive values?
Whatever your reasons, they are valid—and we want to help you take action, to make homeschooling your solution. So commit those reasons to a document that will serve as the bedrock for the important work ahead.
Once you’ve established your WHY, then it’s time to navigate other challenges, such as finding out your state’s laws governing homeschooling, discovering your homeschooling style, as well as developing curriculum to fit your student’s needs. And perhaps most importantly, we stress the value of finding a community of like minded homeschoolers for support and encouragement.
Nearly every state makes some provision for allowing homeschooling in some form or fashion. It’s crucial for you to know and understand these laws, and to abide by them, as you can face serious consequences for noncompliance. Our guide gives helpful tips to ensure you’re informed and able to traverse the legal landscape.
If you find a good community with whom you share common values, you’re more likely to stay the course when things get difficult. Also, you’ll find, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel, and that there are others who’ve been in your shoes on their homeschooling journey, so they have a lot of wisdom they can (and are oftentimes very willing to) share.
One of the most daunting aspects to homeschooling for many parents is choosing and developing curriculum. But we can assure you, if you follow our steps up until this point, you’ll find it to be more exciting than intimidating. You’ll be able to find what fits your homeschooling style and helps your learner reach their fullest potential. Customizing your teaching to match your child’s learning style removes an artificial barrier to learning and enables your child to succeed.
As you work through the guide, you’ll begin to see what your own homeschooling style might look like, and that’s what it’s all about—finding what kind of schooling fits your student and family culture. Our guide includes a helpful graph of different approaches along with the pros and cons associated with them. Most importantly, our approach stresses the importance of developing a deep relationship with your child, which will allow you to tailor fit curricula and learning activities.
There are just a few other simple steps included in our guide, and we’d love to share them with you.

When I started homeschooling, I was attracted to the benefits for my family and children. However, over the years, as I learned more and saw the destruction caused by institutional schools, my initial attraction turned into a passion. I began to realize that most people are being duped into trusting government bureaucrats to raise their children. Parents are completely missing out on the rich, strong relationships they could have with their children by teaching them at home. Because of that, I’ve become an unapologetic champion of homeschooling. I’ve spoken to various groups about the benefits of homeschooling.
My beautiful wife and I have been on this journey for over 15 years. We have 5 children, ranging from 7 to 17 and we are on the verge of graduating our first two from high school. Both have been accepted into private colleges and awarded scholarships. (Thank goodness!) We make our home in Colorado where we camp, hike and enjoy being outdoors.
Christy’s experience includes a 20-year career in K-College academics and administration where she’s worked and taught at literally every level of education in a professional capacity- with diverse student populations ranging from gifted to those with learning differences.
After starting her career as a classroom teacher, Christy found great success as a private tutor, which then evolved into her becoming an educational consultant for kids of the “rich and famous” in Los Angeles. There she worked alongside her husband at their private learning center. She came to realize the system is broken and failing its students, even those from families who can “afford it all.” When she had her own children, she knew what she had to do: homeschool. She spends her days educating her four “endlessly entertaining” kids in Colorado with Scott, her husband of 20+ years. Christy takes great pleasure in listening to fiction on Audible, cooking with her kids, and pondering all things education. You can find her on her two favorite playgrounds, Tik Tok and HomeschoolAwakening.com.
