The journey of homeschooling is good, but it is not easy! Many of us start our journey excited with great visions and goals of what we want our homeschools to look like and how we want our children to turn out. Then the reality of the daily grind of homeschooling and all its challenges hits, and our excitement goes from a blazing fire to a mere spark. Dana wants to encourage you to stay the course and to remember why you started. After homeschooling for thirteen years, she needed this reminder to refocus her this past year. Let’s go back and remember.

Dana McDill is the wife of NCHE executive director, Matthew McDill. They live in Creston, NC (Ashe County) with 8 of their 9 children ages 6 to 19. Their oldest daughter is married. Dana has been homeschooling for 16 years. She loves encouraging other mothers on their homeschooling journeys because this journey is not for the faint of heart. Dana has personally struggled with hormonal imbalances and adrenal fatigue through which she has learned much! She is a “normal” homeschooling mom who wants to be real about the joys and challenges of homeschooling and to encourage others not to give up. She is still on her amazing journey of refinement and in the trenches just like you!
