With that in mind, I have compiled a list of some of my favorite homeschooling mom blogs. Enjoy!

HOTM Site Synopsis: Heart of the Matter is more than just a homeschooling site. It is a site dedicated to helping all of us block out the noise, blow away the fluff and get to the “heart of the matter”…the heart of the matter in homeschooling, parenting, marriage, health and most importantly….those things that God considers to be the “heart of the matter.”
