Review: The Old Schoolhouse Magazine November Issue

My Review of
The Old Schoolhouse Magazine's November Issue

A few years ago when I began my homeschool journey, I came across The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. I am a magazine lover so to find one that was dedicated to homeschool, well, I was like a kid in a candy store. This magazine is blend of wisdom from experienced homeschoolers and Christian principles.

Today, I am thrilled to share my review of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine's November Issue. 

Each month I wait for this magazine to come out. It's like having your best girlfriend (who is a homeschool guru) come to visit for the afternoon.  I believe we all have similar struggles no matter how our homeschool experiences differ. I don't know how they do it, but it seems like each issue has exactly what I need.The November issue does not disappoint!

Highlights from this month's issue:

1. I must begin with my favorite article, Refuse to Be a Victim: Avoiding the Self-Pity Trap. Oh boy, is this something that needs to be said in this economy and at this time of year. The author, Denise Mira, hits the nail on the head with her questions to get you thinking of how to change your focus from what you lack to what you have. 

2. In keeping with my plan to get our house on track, It's the Little Things is exactly what I needed to read this month. When I talk with other homeschool moms, we seem to all face the challenge of housekeeping. The author says that after her years of homeschooling, her goals in life shifted from worldly accomplishments to successfully teaching her son to sweep the floor. Can't we all relate to this? The beauty of homeschool is that we are given the opportunity to teach all the little things!

3. As if the last article wasn't enough, you will be pleased to read Crunching Through the Cracker Crumbs. Misty West presents a manageable and realistic cleaning housekeeping schedule and she even has time to relax and worship on the weekends. I love this article! Like the author, I have 3 kids and I am a big supporter on getting everyone involved to make the house run smoothly.

Other great articles in this issue:

I could go on and on about how great the magazine is, but you really need to check it out for yourself. I am confident when I say that there is something for every homeschool family. You can view the magazine for FREE online each month at The Homeschool Magazine and there are apps available from  iTunes and Kindle and Android.
