With a combined 35+ years of homeschooling experience, these moms are ready to help you be more confident, less overwhelmed, and ready to tackle any challenges that come your way!

Colleen Kessler

Colleen Kessler believes that you are the absolute best teacher there is for your gifted, twice-exceptional kiddo.  She has a M.Ed. in gifted studies, and is the founder of the popular podcast and website Raising Lifelong Learners, as well as The Learner’s Lab, a membership community for differently-wired kids and their parents.

Her brand-new book, Raising Resilient Sons: A Boy Mom’s Guide to Building a Strong, Confident, and Emotionally Intelligent Family is available now wherever books are sold!

Colleen lives in Northeast Ohio with her reading specialist husband, four delightfully differently-wired kiddos  and an ever-changing assortment of small animals.

Jamie C. Martin

Jamie is an introverted mom of three, who loves books, tea, and people (not always in that order), and avoids answering the phone when possible. She co-founded in 2010 and began in 2020.

Jamie is the author of four books, including Give Your Child the World (reached #9 on Amazon's Top 100 Best Sellers list), and her latest release, Introverted Mom (an ECPA bestseller).

Her work has been featured by LeVar Burton of Reading Rainbow, the Washington Post, Parents, Today Parenting, and Psychology Today.

Pam Barnhill

Pam Barnhill believes that you don’t have to sacrifice relationships to homeschool strong.

She is the host of the popular podcast Your Morning Basket and the author of two homeschooling books: Better Together: Strengthen Your Family, Simplify Your Homeschool, and Savor the Subjects that Matter Most and Plan Your Year: Homeschool Planning for Purpose and Peace.

Pam lives in the Deep South with her husband of twenty-six years, three (mostly) awesome kids, and the dog dynamic duo. You can find her online at
