    I'm sure this is a great book for someone, but you'd think that SOMEwhere on the cover or in the chapter titles it would mention how heavily Christian the text is. I was really looking forward to some good ideas, but most of the answers leaned toward, "For help with __________, look at what the scripture says."

    I appreciated that the author was very "real" with homeschool struggles. But it was a little frustrating that at least half of her advice/suggestions boiled down to "Trust in God". I was hoping for more. I appreciated that the author was very "real" with homeschool struggles.

    A former criminal prosecutor decides to quit her job and pull her 2 girls out of school and teach them at home. Then she and her husband adopt two more so now she's at home teaching 4 kids. And she's found the time to write a book about it all. (And I thought I was busy!) Even though I am not an official homeschooler, I appreciated her practical advice and honest accounts of what daily life is like for her and her family.

    This is a great book for the christian homeschooler that feels like they are spinning their wheels. It gives you inspiration to keep going and how to deal with the difficult life events that sometimes jump in your path. This is my second time reading this book and I will probably read it again. Christine is a wonderful writer that inserts humor into the dialogue. I highly recommend this book!

    Halfway through the book, there is a helpful list of activities to keep a preschooler busy while homeschooling. This, and other lists, helps the book earn its title. I also got a few ideas of how to better handle sibling arguments. However, there were whole sections of the book I skipped over due to the religious slant, so it only earns 3 stars.

    This book was a great encouragement and a reminder of the meaning and purpose of our homeschooling journey. Chapters include information on burnout, disapproval from family and friends, resources on homeschooling learning disabled children, and much more. I found the book to be well-written and practical while approaching the topic from a wonderful Christian perspective.

    This book was just what I needed. After a couple of years of homeschooling I found myself definitely what you'd call "harried". This book helped me put some things in perspective. It IS from a Christian standpoint which is fine by me.must read for the Christian homeschooler! This book was just what I needed.

    I thought the author's way of presenting advice in a way that is framed by God's principles was excellent. Her knowledge of scripture was sound and balanced.

    Great overview for this shaking-in-my-boots, soon-to-be homeschooling mom. Excellent chapters on discouragement and burnout that would be helpful for any mom, homeschooling or not. Also good, practical suggestions for a newbie. Again, nice overview of homeschooling from a Christian perspective.

    Not bad. I think if I was feeling harried, this book would help a great deal. The only tidbit I got out of it was a reminder that I ought to be schooling my toddler instead of just letting her play and pick up the crumbs of the big kids.

    This is a great look at the nuts and bolts of handling homeschooling for parents, especially one with multiple children (like me!). It's very well written - humorous! - very light hearted. I'm really enjoying it. This is a great look at the nuts and bolts of handling homeschooling for parents, especially one with multiple children (like me!).

    More like 1 1/2 stars. I didn't realize this was a Christian-focused book, something that is not obvious from the cover. There were some little tidbits of helpful information in here, but overall I was turned off by the heavy focus on religion. More like 1 1/2 stars.

    I'm not a harried homeschooler... yet. And most of this is common sense and good dose of grace but I can see myself coming back to this one in years ahead. I'm not a harried homeschooler... yet.

    Superb book! So encouraging to read with a variety of homeschoolers on different subjects. I checked this out at the library, but I'm going to buy it and share with friends. :) Superb book!

    This book has a special place in my heart when God used my reading of it to confirm the upcoming move mr family was about to take in 2003! This is found in the chapter on Burnout

    Loving this book! The author is a Christian, and I am gleaning some wisdom as well as practical ideas. Just grabbed it on a "whim" in the library, and Providence has blessed my find!
