If you have plans to homeschool your child but you don’t want to do a Christian based curriculum I would highly recommend joining secular homeschooling groups. There are unschooling, literature based, only child, curriculum based and many other various types of secular homeschooling groups.

I’ve started a blog for a few reasons. I want to document my homeschooling journey. I want to compile resources for myself and others. I am hoping that this will help people who are on the search for secular materials like myself. Having to wade through a sea of material I have no interest in is slow going. I also wanted to share the support groups who have already helped me so much. Being able to call upon the wisdom of others while starting this journey has been amazing.
