Over the last twelve years of homeschooling, Erin has volunteered in the local homeschool community. From planning field trips, to mom night out events, leading a local support group, starting co-ops, volunteering with our state homeschool organization, hosting a podcast dedicated to encouraging homeschool moms, one-on-one coaching, and speaking at homeschool events, Erin has a heart to help homeschool moms gain confidence in the calling God has placed on their life. The most frequent comment she hears from new homeschoolers or those thinking about pulling their child from public or private school is, “If I could just have someone SHOW ME what homeschooling looks like, that would make me feel better/more confident/like I knew what I was doing.” This is why Show Me Homeschool was created. To guide parents through the wilderness of home education so they can homeschool through high school successfully.

  • Hi Whitney,

    The workshop is open and available to everyone, so no need to sign up. However, if you want to take advantage of the discounted dinner option, then please sign up in advance so that we know how many dinners to prepare. We can’t guarantee that there will be enough meals for everyone if they come to order on site.

    Hope this helps!

  • Katie says:

    how do I enroll for the webinar?

    • Hi Katie,

      Unfortunately the webinar was on Aug. 5, and we’re not planning to offer any more for the rest of the year.

      We try to offer these homeschool workshops and webinars each summer, though – stay tuned for more updates!
