HSHSP Ep 87: Help for Homeschool Working Moms with Stacey Lane
Now, we know that ALL homeschool moms are working moms, but today we’re discussing having a paying job. Our friend, Stacey Lane of Layered Soul is one of those kind of working moms.
Stacey is customer service representative for Bright Ideas Press, as well as caregiving for her disabled husband and homeschooling her kids. (Her 2 oldest are homeschool graduates and currently in college.) She also picks up cleaning jobs and cooks for 70 people each Wednesday night at church.
When we asked how she juggles all Stacey talks about the importance of being a willow tree rather than an oak tree, because willow trees are flexible.
She loves to remind people to find the humor! Make sure you don’t forget to laugh as you handle the hard situations. You can change the hard situations but you can control how you respond to them! Yes there is time to cry and raise your fists in the air and there is times to laugh.
Join Vicki, Kym and Stacey for a delightful conversation about work/homeschool/service/life balance with her brilliant tips like:
- Creative ways to keep service as part of life
- Finding a little time for self-care
- Asking for help
- Time management for homeschool lessons
- Multi-meal prepping
- Apps for saving time grocery shopping
- Apps for remembering maintenance that needs to be done
