Our Homeschool Journey by Lorrie Battung

When we were just a newbie homeschooling family, I was always searching for families or moms who have been done it before. In my mind, what better way to learn about homeschooling than hearing from someone who has been in the trenches. Someone who has been doing it for years, possibly even with children who have already finished homeschooling. Meeting women like this is always an assurance. It assures us that we can go on our own homeschooling journey and actually make it. It calms us down when we feel panicked or doubt if we are doing the right thing for our children. We get answers to questions that have been disturbing us. This JulyRead more …

Family Discipleship – For Such A Time As This

Family Discipleship

Recently, our family experienced a test of our faith. I had undergone a trial involving other Christians which my kids observed. They watched me deal with the pain, saw me cry over it, saw my anger and how hard a time I had at first. They watched as I processed the whole thing, was able to forgive and is now moving forward again. As they watched, they also experienced the whole thing with me. It was painful, not only having to deal with what happened to me, but having to deal with the pain that my children felt over it. It was different for them. Being so young and idealistic, they thought that church isRead more …

Deped Alternative Learning System – A System Fit for Homeschoolers

Alternative Learning System for Homeschoolers

  This is an update of my previous post about Guitar Babe taking up DepEd ALS Exam. In my previous post, I wrote about how she was able to enroll in a college while she was waiting to take the exam. She took the exam last January 2015 and we waited with bated breath for the results. She was not very confident because she had a hard time with some of the Tagalog words. She admitted that there was a whole section of the exam that she just couldn’t understand because of the Tagalog statements. Don’t get me wrong please: my kids speak both English and Tagalog well but when it comes to deep-level TagalogRead more …

It’s Holy Week – that time when we remember the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross because He loved us so much. At that time 2000 years ago, Jesus had seven last words, which are actually sentences that Jesus said when He was hanging, suffering on the cross. What were these and what do they mean for us today? Are those words still relevant? If you happen to live in Paranaque and are staying home for the Holy Week, come and join us as we reflect on the Seven Last Words of Jesus Christ on April 3, 2015 at 3:00PM. Grace Community Fellowship of Paranaque is located at the 2nd Level Santana Grove, Parañaque, Philippines. Reflect andRead more …

We just finished TMA Homeschool’s 2015 Parents Conference last March 12, 2015 and it was a great success. We had almost 700 people on that day, about 200 more than what we had during last year’s Educating for Life Homeschooling Conference. It’s inspiring to see that the homeschool community is growing and more families are now enjoying the benefits of educating their children at home. Being the event organizer, I was in and out of the conference halls making sure that everything was working out fine. I listened for a few minutes to Joy Mendoza’s talk and she reminded me so much of her mom, Deonna Tan-Chi. I shared in my previous post that TMARead more …

Our Homeschool Roots – TMA Homeschool

KidKiteEmailerwlogos3.jpg

13 years ago I heard a group of parents talk about this thing they’ve been doing at home for years – teaching their children at home! It was a novel idea at that time and I was even surprised to find that Filipino parents have actually been homeschooling already. I looked at the result of their hard work – their children – and I was in such awe! They had this young girl talk to us and tell their family’s story and she was amazing! Standing tall in front of the room and holding herself with confidence, not bravado, this young girl told us how their family handled some of the challenges they faced whileRead more …

I first met Ginger Arboleda during the 1st WAHMderful workshop in 2012 where I was one of the panelists. I was curious who it was that Blissmaker Martine de Luna partnered with in putting up the very first WAHM workshop. Ginger was a very dynamic, young woman. I immediately spoke to her about my husband and told her that I wanted to plan something with her. Hubby and I met with her together to discuss it, and though those plans did not push through, Ginger and I remained connected through Facebook and other blogger events.  Source Through the years, I observed Ginger and Manila Workshops and how it has steadily grown. I was surprised oneRead more …
