As a long-time homeschool blogger and veteran homeschooling mom (we began in 2002), I am often approached for advice about homeschooling and choosing curriculum. I truly enjoy helping other homeschooling families navigate the often confusing, overwhelming world of homeschool. However, as much as I would love to be able to take the time to offer individualized advice to everyone who writes, doing so requires more time than I am able to take away from my responsibilities at home.
In order to help as many people as possible, I have a reviews page on my blog that is updated regularly. If I’ve reviewed a product, you’ll find it listed on that page. It even includes my top picks for each grade level (though I need to update for high school).
I’ve also done a couple of helpful series on topics such as homeschooling high school and how to get started homeschooling. My series on how to start homeschooling has even been compiled into an easy-to-access e-book, Homeschooling 101.

“Kris is obviously well informed as well as experienced. The fact that she has done it, is very reassuring. I loved all the extra material or websites that she gave me to further get info. It helped me feel not so alienated in the homeschooling world. I appreciated all the experience that Kris is willing to share with others! It was a blessing to me!” – Shelly W.
“Kris was quick to answer and had wonderful, thought-out insight. There was more depth than you could get simply reading her blog or even many blogs. It was great to feedback from an outside eye on several of the glitches we’ve been having with our homeschool.” – homeschooling mom
“Kris’s advice was very helpful and extremely informative. It was a relief to have someone to discuss current challenges and learning issues with.” – Janet W.
