Plan to Be Flexible Testimonials and Reviews:
“Although I have homeschooled for several years now, I found Plan to Be Flexible to be full of practical advice gleaned from real-life experiences. It really is a study guide for learning to plan and organize your school days!” –Brandy of HalfAHundredAcreWood.com (full review)
“Alicia wrote about things I had not even thought of before. When I first started reading the book, I felt like Alicia was in my living room talking to me as a friend. This book is a very easy read and has so much information. I especially liked the action plans at the end of each chapter. Plan to Be Flexible has given me so many new ideas and tips to try out.”–Rebecca of Our Life–Home and School (full review)
“In the first pages alone, Plan to Be Flexible
spoke so clearly and loudly to my heart. My son and I do school right now with clenched fists and teeth. It is not inspiring or encouraging, and no one is really getting anything lovely out of it. But this book has given such a beautiful vision—a clarity as to what we must do as parents to truly cultivate a love of learning in our children (while still building relationships). This book has been a wonderful guide to walk us toward healing and wholeness.”–Jennifer of worthabowedhead.com
“I’m very grateful for this book because it has given me a clear vision to recognize when learning is taking place amidst the chaos and messes of everyday life, and has given me the motivation to be willing to bravely recognize the opportunities for real and truthful learning (even if it involves messiness) and to embrace them with joy. Alicia invites us to envision a beautifully flexible and purposeful learning life.” —Maritza of homeschoolingephiphany.com (full review)
“I thoroughly enjoyed Plan to Be Flexible and encourage others to read it. I liked her ideas and concepts so much that I am completely redoing my schedule for the year!” Janeen of SproutingTadpoles.com (full review)
“Even though I've been homeschooling for about 7 years now, I found this book very useful. In fact, I know I'll be re-reading it a number of times!” –Lisa of pray4lilly.blogspot.com (full review)
“There is a lot of good advice in this book. Alicia has filled this full of personal experiences and wisdom, and I appreciate her advice to step back and get a sense of the big picture. My favorite part is the assessment portion in the appendix of the book. What a great guide to help you get an idea of where you are at and where you need to go to achieve your goals!”—Erin of AmundsenHouseofChaos.com (full review)
“Plan to Be Flexible
gets down to the nitty gritty of figuring out what is working in your homeschooling process–and what is not. This book is very realistic as Alicia mentions many different challenges different families have when they homeschool and how they can keep making progress despite those challenges, and what to do when life gets in the way. Plus, at the end of the book, there is a terrific list of resources that you can buy or just click on! If you are a homeschooling mom, you will want this book!”—Tammy of CreativeKKids.com (full review)
“I so much appreciated Alicia's encouragement to look at all of life as a learning opportunity, and also to give yourself grace on the hard days.” –Joy of Artful Homemaking (full review)
“I found Alicia's style to be very personable, real, intelligent, and professional. She's been homeschooling long enough, and with enough kids, to have some great background to work from. ‘Chatting over a cup of coffee' is how I'd sum up her writing style. She writes like a friend you can sit down and be real with, because you know she's being real with you, and who you can bounce ideas off of and leave the coffee table wiser for the visit.” –Jody of BecauseImMe (full review)
Full of practical ideas and real-life stories, this book is an incredible resource to establish the flexible, rhythm-based homeschooling lifestyle you and your family have been looking for!
