There are so many options for homeschooling today. How do you decide which method to follow?
Everyone has their own story of how they began homeschooling and how they chose the method they follow. Here’s the story of my journey to a Charlotte Mason education.

Remember, share as much detail as possible in your reply. Others will benefit from your story and experience.
Choosing your philosophy of education and homeschool curriculum can be overwhelming, but take it one step at a time. Pray and seek God’s guidance for your family. Continue to read and study, both about your homeschool style/method and topics of interest. You might want to start here.
If you are ready to jump into the Charlotte Mason method of education, check out Charlotte Mason Homeschooling in 18 Easy Lessons or A Charlotte Mason Education. Both are great books to get you started quickly.
I encourage you to find a local support group. Regular fellowship with like minded families will be a great encouragement on this journey. If there is not a support group in your area, consider starting one.
