“Beginning the Homeschool Funnel”
Hello to my “Newbie” friends. Welcome to the Homeschool Movement!
“Starting the homeschool process is much like using a funnel. We add many components that filter through and flow out to your family’s mix. This workshop will discuss the natural process to get started homeschooling.
“Organizing, goal and vision setting for homeschooling is a process. Some families need a reboot to plan long term. This workshop helps parents evaluate their priorities and values for global planning.

“Beginning the Homeschool Funnel”
” Be inspired, motivated and encouraged to discover how build resiliency and iron focus in order to leverage adversity to reach your potential”
-The Iron Jen
Often, I find many people have things in their heart they want to accomplish, yet they are discouraged and afraid. Some feel too tired to try since they have many obstacles to overcome.
A starting place for them to change is by renewing their minds and gain courage to go forward even when they may feel like quitting or giving up on their family, hopes and dreams.
I always encourage them to pray and read their Bible if they are people of faith.
The Word of God is stuffed with helpful verses that give courage and strength :
“That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”
1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT)
After those bases are covered…. I cannot say enough about The Iron Jen Show podcast. Iron Jen’s honesty and transparency keep me hooked on the show.
I listen to it regularly from the podcast app on my iPhone. You can listen on Android and on Blog Talk Radio on your computer. You can subscribe to automatically receive new episodes.
The background story is a family that has worked hard to climb out of massive debt, compete in triathlons, manage their busy lives with four children including one son who unfortunately has serious health issues for God to heal.
The podcast is designed for people from all walks of life who need encouragement and support. Iron Jen tackles life’s tough issues with her guests who help listeners overcome everything from writing a book, starting or expanding a business, to climbing out of depression or helping a child conquer substance abuse.

In what areas do you struggle and need the most encouragement? What do you do when you need more courage?
I just received a picture of this hilarious cartoon from a friend who wrote “U at ENOCH”
She is referring to me speaking at the ENOCH NJ Homeschool Convention coming up in May.
This funny cartoon was created by John McPherson at http://CloseToHome.com
He has a new Close To Home funny on the http://www.gocomics.com/closetohome everyday.
Ironically, this cartoon is easy to relate to at times with our 6 kids that we homeschool.
Moms juggle a lot to get things done!
