My Story

Freedom Life Mom Welcomes You!

I’m so glad you found your way to this page!

Homeschooling is one of my passions!

I’ve been homeschooling since I was in ninth grade…. THAT’S RIGHT!

I started homeschooling when I was in high school, and graduated thru a homeschool organization.

As I had children I homeschooled them too. None of my children have attended a public school, and 2 have graduated so far.

I’m so passionate about homeschooling that I’ve advised new homeschoolers in person for about 10 years.

Since traveling I’ve been sharing easy ways to homeschool for 3 years, and exploring new ways to do it myself ❀❀.

My Eclectic Style

Homeschooling to me is an adventure. Each child learns in a different way and has different interests.

Therefore, allowing for many styles has allowed them to enjoy a fullness of education that an inside the box curriculum could’ve never provided.

Charlotte Mason

I first got turned onto the Charlotte Mason philosophy when I was searching for a way to focus my adopted, drug affected, ADHD child on traditional school work.

I fell in love with so much of it, but was also running a child care at the time, and couldn’t implement every aspect of it.

Charlotte focuses on learning from stories, nature, hands on… I’m sure you can see how this approach could interest a busy child. 🀣

Unit Studies

From researching Charlotte Mason I felt safe to move from textbooks to more hands on studies for all the kids.
A unit study captures children’s attention and helps them understand the pieces of the whole as they fit together. When they learn about the oceans with a unit study, they learn about whales and dolphin, how the oceans flow, how explorers traveled the oceans with currents and wind, and how big and wide and deep the oceans. Through this approach, children develop critical thinking skills as they see how all of these components work together.

I found Amanda Bennett about 15 years ago!

I have watched excitedly as the company expanded, grabbing up new learning adventures as each child budded a new interest.

Unschooling

For some of the kids, self directed learning was the route best for them.

For this method you leave educational resources in areas that catch their eye, and allow them to explore them at their leisure.

You are always available (as much as possible πŸ˜‚) to engage with them and answer questions, look things up, and input your opinion.

The term “strewing” is used to describe leaving the learning resources in places that’ll catch interest.

Here are some examples of items used for strewing by subject:

Younger Levels – Click Each Subject:

MATH, SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, ART, MUSIC, LITERATURE, PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

Older Levels – Click Each Subject:

My Story

When we jumped into full time travel we had 3 weeks to find an RV and go (we didn’t want to waste money on renewing our lease.)

We began our journey debt free, with an $800 month unemployment check our only consistent income.

Full time travel definitely takes getting used to, so even though I was blogging and coaching at the time, those sales dipped drastically as I learned the ropes.

To find our balance we shifted a lot. We flipped RV’S, I sold handcrafted items in little seaside towns, I let go of my coaching business due to lack of wifi (and knowledge of how to get it), and underwent drastic changes in my life views.

It was absolutely freeing, but believe me when I say I’ve done it all!

And I’ve found blogging and affiliate marketing to be not only my favorite, but also the MOST PROFITABLE!

Update!

We’ve decided to jump off the road and build a tiny house!

Blogging

What could be easier than talking about things that have made your life easier or more interesting for the benefit or encouragement of others??? 😍

That’s what you do when you start a lifestyle blog. You make a difference in the lives of others.

They look to you for inspiration and answers, experience and expansion.

It’s like chatting to old friends who are excited to hear about something new, something that’ll change their current path, move them forward.

If you’re interested in starting a blog, here are a few of my favorite YouTube channels to get you started:

YouTube For Beginning Bloggers

Allison Lindstrom

Gillian Perkins

Create&Go

Blogging and sharing your story can be enough to generate income, but most bloggers enjoy adding affiliate links to boost their income.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is passive income at it’s best.

No need to create products, handle customer service, to begin you don’t even actually need a blog!

It allows you to make money WHILE living the rest of your life.

You simply promote, or recommend, other people’s products and earn a commission.

Amazon’s affiliate program is probably the best known, easiest to start, and most used.

However, there are many, many, many options for affiliate marketers in all niches!

Becoming A Blogging Digital Nomad (or Work At Home Mom!)

As I mentioned earlier, becoming a digital nomad is easier said than done, but absolutely amazing once you learn the ropes.

I’m here to make that a LOT easier for you πŸ˜‚πŸ™Œ.

I’m sure you already know the niche you want to focus on in your blog like the back of your hand.

So many people believe that’s enough.

But the back side of owning any business is not just operating, it’s REACHING PEOPLE!

And that takes some studying and some practice!

What to focus on:
