Reading List For Homeschool Moms

Reading List For Homeschool Moms


My current life season is made up of mothering and homeschooling my children. So, it makes sense that my current reading list reflects that.

I rarely read books for purely entertainment purposes anymore. And, when I do, it is because I am reading it out loud to my children as part of our homeschooling lesson.

Okay, so I guess that doesn’t count as entertainment, but I am usually just as interested in the books we read for school as my children. High-quality literature has that benefit. Am I right?!?

However, I do have several books that I want to read or study further. They’ve been sitting on my night stand waiting patiently for my attention.

Biographies, homeschool research & education-related, parenting & inspirational. I am also including some books I’ve recently read and want to revisit with an in-depth study.

These books are for the homeschool mom who wants to be encouraged and educated as a Christian woman and wife as well. Because we are not just homeschool moms.

I hope you’ll find some books to add to your reading list! I’d love to know what you are currently reading or plan to read.

We know homeschooling can put a financial strain on families – whether it’s from living on one-income or buying curriculum for your children – the financial aspect of it can be stressful.  Our hope is that we can bless homeschool families so they can buy the curriculum and supplies they need (or maybe a want you can finally splurge on) for their school year.

  1. Hi Clarissa,
    I have been homeschooling forever…OK some days it feels that way 🙂 Actually it’s been since 2009 so that would be 8 years and a bit ( since our year is different from yours).
    Renata 🙂

  2. I’m entering my 3rd year of homeschooling with my 7 yr son. I’m not going to lie, it’s been awesome, but there were times that wasn’t so awesome. I knew homeschooling was the avenue for us when I was pregnant, and my favorite time is when I watch the light bulb go off and he understands!!! To see his whole face light up because he finally gets it is priceless❤️

  3. I’ve been homeschooling 7 years. I recently read teaching from rest and it’s changed my outlook on schooling!

  4. We did light pre-school last year, but this year will be our first official year homeschooling. My daughter starts kindergarten this year. I was homeschooled for 5 years so it isn’t new to me.

  5. We’ve been homeschooling for 20 years and still have about another 8 to go unless we add grandbabies in , which could keep me going till who knows when ?! Lol ! 🙂

  6. I have been homeschooling for four years now. However, I also graduated from homeschool what seems like a lifetime ago. I do a lot of what I would call ‘pinterest’ or ‘TpT’ schooling. I would love to have some real curriculum and maybe some manipulatives. So, here are my fingers – crossed. Thank you for this opportunity!

  7. I’ve been homeschooling for 5 years. I am quite interested in Knights in Training too, just waiting for our budget to allow me to buy it!

  8. I will be starting my 6th year of homeschooling. I started with my youngest in K & he will be in 5th grade this year! Where does the time go??

  9. Teaching from rest is one of my all-time favorite homeschooling books! I read it last year & think I need to read it again, to remind myself not to over do it when planning our upcoming year.
