Make 2019 the year you put the joy back into your homeschool.

Do you feel overwhelmed at trying to cultivate an appreciation for truth, goodness, and beauty in your children?

Do you struggle to find great resources to use?

Do you find that you try to do all.the.things and then get overwhelmed and then do nothing instead?

Do you spend hours researching just the right books to read?

Do you feel intimidated choosing which poems to read or artists to study?

Do you wish you could find ideas for learning together across the ages and stages of your family?

My kids were missing out on the most important part of homeschool because I wanted to do it all myself.

Hi. I’m Pam Barnhill and if you are a homeschool parent who wants to have a more consistent start to your day, combine your students more efficiently, or feel like you are missing out on subjects that are important to you, then I can help.

I have to be honest. I am a born perfectionist and control freak. I thought that if I wasn’t the one doing all of the planning for our homeschool and Morning Time that I was doing something wrong. After all, wouldn’t I be missing the biggest benefit of homeschooling — a personalized education — if I didn’t pull everything together myself based on what we were studying?

Boy was I wrong.

I wanted to read the best books, share the best poems, learn about beautiful music and art. These are the things I value most and starting our day this way keeps us in a good state of mind for doing the hard work that comes later. Yet often it wasn’t getting done consistently because I didn’t have time to make a plan.

So I set out to solve the problem.

The solution was my friend Jessica and a partnership that has resulted in beautiful Morning Time plans for hundreds of families. Jessica is a kid-lit aficionado. She reads hundreds of books and geeks out on researching art, poetry, and resources. She also has a knack for choosing the ones that kids love.

Jessica’s gifts, along with my curriculum and graphic design experience, helped us create a tool that homeschool families can use to have a Morning Time that is always engaging and changing. It is the perfect way to start a homeschool morning.

So how do we consistently bring the best to our children each and every school day?

I never thought I’d be able to actually use an open and go plan. I’m actually pretty good at pulling things together, but these plans are really, really great stuff. I love the book choices, the poetry, and the memorization selections. I could go on and on.

I’m not new here, but after 15 years of homeschooling, I knew something was missing. Now we wouldn’t think of doing school without starting with Morning Time. The “extras” are no longer extra; they are an essential piece of our homeschool. Morning time for us is just as important as math.

These plans made me super excited that someone else had already put together lessons that were themed and that meshed well with each other. My children are thoroughly enjoying memorizing Shakespeare! I love seeing them get so excited and ask what we’re going to learn about today.

I didn’t expect the plans to cover so many subjects. That was a pleasant surprise. Now Morning Time happens consistently. I finally feel as though we’re doing what we’re supposed to be doing and my heart has more peace.

Morning Time has become our best part of the day. It is where we come together and connect with truth and beauty, and possibly the best part is that the work has been done for me. The time it would take to pull all of this together on my own is well worth the money.

What age group are the plans made for?

We have separate sets for only preschoolers (labeled as such) which are geared towards ages 3-6. For younger kids these plans make a complete preschool program. For older kids (ages 5 and up) simply add math and phonics for a delightful kindergarten experience. Right now the rest of our plans are designed for grades 1-6 (middle/high school plans are on the radar) but most of our families find the content is easily adapted to include preschoolers or older kids. Remember, Scripture, poetry, art, and music are good for all ages. Most of what is in the plans can be used for an entire family.

What if I can't make the Morning Time Live events?

Replays of all events will be included on the Morning Time Live page indefinitely. You can access those along with all other plans, videos, and resources through your Morning Time Subscriber hub at any time.

What else do I have to buy to do the plans?

We always try to keep our family’s budgets in mind as we make the plans. That said, we find greater enjoyment comes when using a well-made resource created by someone with a passion for their subject. So we usually include one or two additional paid resources in our plans. We encourage you to wait for sales on these resources, make substitutions for books, check your library, or even feel free to skip a subject entirely if you must. As we create plans we are trying to keep the number of extra resources needed for each set to a reasonable amount while still keeping the joy in using a well-crafted resource your kids will love.

What happens after I check out?

You will receive an email confirming your purchase. At any time you may log into your account to access the Morning Time Subscriber Hub to request access to the Facebook group, and access your bonuses, and download your Morning Time plans. If you have any problems, email for assistance.
