embracing life and letting God


The Brasher Homestead School - Schoolroom

January 2012

It's official.  We have been published!  THE BRASHER HOMESTEAD SCHOOL has been featured in an article in a homeschool magazine.  Who knew, this average student, from the south, who hated school, would one day teach her children and be able to write from her heart, sharing our families journey IN in print.  And now we are in a real Magazine. Wow! God is amazing!
"Prayer and Trust in the Lord are where I stay..."

This month in the January 2012 Issue of The Old Schoolhouse: The Magazine for Homeschool Families THE BRASHER HOMESTEAD SCHOOL is being featured in their special Show and Tell series.  As a member of the TOS Homeschool Review Crew I was given a wonderful opportunity to share our school room and our days of learning at home. 

My wonderful goofballs

We had so much fun participating in this project.  Since The Old Schoolhouse: The Magazine for Homeschool Families has now gone digital you can enjoy our home, not just through print, but now....through Video.  Attached to the digital article there is a button with access to a video of our school.  As you watch our video, you walk with me through our homeschool room, meet our children, and catch a glimpse into how we school at home each day.

My wonderful son, Cameron, did a great job of filming and directing this 'production'.  He was lovingly honest, especially when the teenage embarrassment kicked in and it was all he could do not to laugh at his sweet momma.  In the end, the video turned out wonderful.

"Our foundation for homeschooling is God's Word,
and we plant it into our children's hearts daily..." 

The above are pictures of our 'schoolroom'.  But, as many homeschool families know, this not the only place we learn.  Our home is filled with many places of study: the couch - the closet - the sunroom - outside - even under the dining room table.  We can learn ANYWHERE! 

So, I invite you to our homestead, make yourself at home, come and discover how we made Our Decision to Homeschool, How We Homeschool, and How We Stay Motivated. 

Subscribers of the magazine, you can find our article on pages 24-25.  If you have not already subscribed, you can enjoy a FREE issue of the January 2012 Digital Edition TODAY.  FREE!

Blessings over you all in this New Year!

  1. Great job, Mindy! Can't wait to read the article. I love how much light you get in your schoolroom. What a cheery place! :)

    1. Thank you so much Ashley. Isn't that light wonderful? We started to do school in our basement (no light at all) and that did not last a whole day. We love the open and brightness!

  2. Loved it!! Can't wait to share ours!! :o)

    1. Mrs. Taffy, I really appreciate it. You have blessed me. I will be looking forward to yours. This has really been fun. I love your blog by the way and am now following. Blessings!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing your school room and how you homeschool. Your school is so organized and cheerful! What an inspiration!
    Figuring out how to homeschool one child, one day at a time!
