We are better together at the THRIVE Catholic Homeschool Community

Is this you? Tired of feeling this way?

How do I balance being teacher with being a mom and running a household? And this after I’ve been at it for a decade!

Some days I feel torn between my big kids needs and little kids needs. I keep feeling guilty the little ones have to wait for me. This is hard!

How do I plan daily assignments for multiple kids?

How do I keep on a schedule? I have ideals, but being home makes me want to clean, cook, and all else and many times my teaching falls by the wayside…and I don’t want it to continue, so how do I ignore all that and just TEACH??

How to choose the right curriculum and the BEST FIT for my child/children?

Results from Thrive Members

This is a thriving online community of Catholic homeschooling parents where I can bring questions and where I can LEARN!

I was brought to tears, really, as I felt such a deep sense of relief and of being unburdened.

I love the encouragement, the sharing of ideas and real-life stories of what worked and didn’t work for families in their homeschool journey. It helps dispel the darkness that creeps into our minds about what we should and shouldn’t be doing in our homeschool and whether we are even capable of doing it! Thank you for sharing your wisdom and insights!

I sure appreciate having a Catholic mentor mom, your wisdom and encouragement mean so much to me!!!!

This community is a blessing! I learned so much from the recorded podcasts, articles, and other resources. I feel assured and encouraged each time I listen to the sharing and advice from experts – there is hope in our busy, crazy, fun homeschool life! It’s so comforting and I feel at home and closer to God when we pray for one another.

I highly encourage every parent with school aged kids to join this community – homeschooling or not.

Thank you for helping me set my feet firmly on the ground — well, at least long enough to pick and plant good seeds for our WONDERFUL homeschooling adventure!

I feel more prepared mentally for this great adventure with my children this year, than I have ever been. The responsibility is great, but with His grace and my small fiat, we will be blessed.

Meet Paola

I am a wife and mom of 7 children, all now graduates of my very own and very real homeschool (ages 33-22 and notice I did not say perfect!)

I bring my love of my faith, marriage, family and my grateful heart! I bring to each coaching session, my 25 years of home education experience that is truly family-tested!

I also bring the vast knowledge I gained from founding and running Emmanuel Books, the trusted source for these past 20+ years, where I personally researched and sought the very best books/resources for families…Always through a Catholic lens, always with realistic goals in mind to bring mom inner peace!

It was during that time too, that I had the honor to consult with hundreds of families to bring them encouragement, focus and JOY into their own unique homeschool journey!
