Your schedule is laid out and today is going to be different! As you jump out of bed, you are ready to tackle the world! But two hours later, after the breakfast burns, the dog has another accident on the carpet, and the toddler slams his fingers in the door, the morning is half over and you wonder where those plans went! Another day is wasted. Can you really homeschool? This is real life, and homeschoolers are not immune just because we have a schedule and a school room! In this session, I will show you five practical ways that I have learned to “merge life with homeschooling.”

Danielle Papageorgiou has been homeschooling, or “lifeschooling,” for 21 years (she counts birth as day 1!) and runs a blog and online conference at She has a passion for helping other homeschoolers learn how to homeschool in a way that does not compete with family life but actually enhances it—homeschooling done in a spirit of freedom, not legalism. Her desire is to see more families set free from the world’s expectations of what education is and to discover that God has made each family unique and has also placed in each of their children special gifts and desires that He wants to use. The verse that guides the Papageorgious in their pursuit of lifeschooling is Matthew 6:33, “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
