About me

about Rebecca Spooner from homeschool on

Welcome to my site!

My name is Rebecca Spooner, I am a homeschool mom of 5 beautiful children amongst a lot of other things. My life is multi-faceted, from homeschooling my kids to running this blog to writing books and traveling to speak, I am always doing something life runs a million miles an hour!

I am married to an RCMP officer (that is Royal Canadian Mounted Police for those of you in the US) here in Northern, BC Canada. I live in a tundra, that gets uncomfortably hot in the summer time. We love our winters and spend them snowmobiling around our little hobby farm and the fields that surround us, taking advantage of the intense seasons we experience here.

My kids are all homeschooled and always have been, they are between the ages of 5-11 years old and they keep me very busy now that they are all “officially” in school.

I drink coffee, work, homeschool, drink more coffee, work more, try to cook something that isn’t in a box, and then drink tea and work into the wee hours of the morning.

Who I am in a nutshell:

  • I am the author of a planning book called Journal Me Organized (teaching you how to get started planning, hand lettering, and bullet journaling with only a notebook)
  • I am currently writing a Bible curriculum series with Masterbooks called More Than Words that is anticipated to release in Spring 2019
  • I am a homeschool speaker and will be traveling to multiple conventions this spring to share my chaos with all of you
  • I am a worship leader and Christian who is passionate and on fire for God in everything that I do
  • I was homeschooled myself
  • I love to plan and be creative, I am an artist at heart though self-taught entirely
  • I play the piano
  • I have a popular education podcast (who would have thunk it?!?!?)
  • I am an introverted extrovert. I like my people, but big groups make me want to crawl in a hole (my kids are my lifeline)
  • I am 31 years old (:o)

Random things that may help you get to know me better. What about you? I send out 2 separate newsletters each month: one for my planning followers and one for my homeschool followers. There I share little sneak peeks into our lives, our day, or my planner that I don’t share anywhere else. If you want to get the latest and greatest straight to your inbox, sign up! I’d love to have you on the list and take this conversation over to your inbox!


  1. I am just starting my homeschooling adventure this year with my kids, ages 12 and 10, and I am so blessed to have found your blog today! I have the same heart you do for homeschooling my children but up until this year haven’t been able to. I am nervous but excited about this year and I will be visiting your blog regularly to get helpful advice and encouragement for the days I feel overwhelmed by it all. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, may the Lord continue to bless you!

  2. So glad I found you!! Found you onpinterest on the small spaces article you wrote. I was about to skip it after I read “my partner and I” as most homosexual couples use that term. Then I went to the “about me” link and read on 🙂 I’m glad I did!!! Can’t wait to read the rest 🙂
    I’m in a 1000 sq ft old home as well homeschooling 3 littles. Nice to meet ya!!!

    • Hi Tina! That was actually a guest post on my site 🙂 I have a school area in our rec room, it works, but that was a hugely helpful post for a lot of people that are small space homeschooling. I am always looking for great content 🙂 Glad to meet you

  3. HI Rebecca, Your words are so inspiring. Only God can help us to be the kind of mother our children need. Thank you for your creative ideas.

  4. I admire you for homeschooling. I worked at the alternative school in the public school system. My husband worked for 39
    years in the school system, the things we could share. Your children are blessed to have you homeschool them. Glad I found your site. I love to write…all things (recipes, lists, quotes, etc) I am looking forward to trying this. Thank you in advance. God d your family.

  5. I am really interesting in homeschool for my kids, i knew it is excellent, i just wait for most information.

  6. HI Rebecca. I just love your videos. And my children ans I are enjoying going through more than words in our afternoon basket time. Thank you! Just wondering if you are in the “know” about math lessons for a living education. Will master books be coming out with a level 7 and 8? If so, when? And if not, boooo ;(. Any ideas what to carry on with for level 7 if they don’t come out with more of
    That series? Hope to hear back!

  7. Thank you for your Math Curriculum review. I would love to see you review The Good and The Beautiful Math as well. One of my children is going into 9th grade and is completely not prepared for high school math. I still trying to figure out which program would best suit her and our other children. Any suggestions are appreciated. I loved that you weren’t trying to push one and put down others. Thanks!

  8. I’m so thankful for what you shared for what works for your family. Glad another mom was brave enough to not do public homeschooling. It can be intimidating not knowing where to begin when considering leaving public school

  9. Hi Rebecca,
    I love your bible curriculum, “more than words”, and I’m wondering where I can get level 3 and 4?

  10. This is so helpful! God bless you! Thank you so much! Homeschool is critical because “schools” teach learned helplessness. In fact, by now, everyone knows that the educational system was designed to teach learned helplessness. This is the way that we take back our Freedom, our ability to make our children Capable, Thinking people. And to live according to our values. Home school is at the core of the fight between good and evil. The forces of evil are against it, because it produces such intelligent, capable human beings. So many bad communists at universities these days are trying to stop it, so that they can bring everyone into their helplessness indoctrination camps, ie, their school system (the Christian ones have become communist and almost as watered down, sadly). Homeschool is our answer for FREEDOM. Freedom to raise our children with our values. To be intelligent, critical, analytical, self-starters, leaders, and self-led.

  11. P.S. Yesterday we had our children watch videos from “American Renaissance” (Jared Taylor) on youtube with us. (please check it out if you have not already). This is the opposite of the values they learn in any school. We are about to be wiped out, extinct, and gone into the memory of history. I would encourage anyone to pass this along. It has grown from small to mainstream. God bless the people who say difficult but truthful things.

  12. My granddaughter is entering 6th grade. While her parents both work, I will be attempting to assist her in her school work. Just wondering which program you use.

  13. The author of the blog certainly has extremely impressive writing skills. You can strengthen the blog even further by adding a few grammatical detailing that promises to take your written piece to another level. Explore the academic services offered by and seek assignment help.

  14. Hi, you have a great blog, you are a great mom! It can be difficult for parents to orient themselves in training programs and techniques. Especially now. At first it is not clear how much time to spend on each of the subjects, how to make a plan, what textbooks to use. Sometimes you need to let yourself rest, a great solution would be to order an essay from Thank you for your inspiration!

  16. it’s incredible, I don’t know how you all manage, I just don’t have enough hours in the day, and I don’t have 5 more children) I’m scared and hard to even think about it yet. the fact that you are a writer amazes me even more because in my student years I could not write a single essay without mistakes. it’s good that I found a useful source on which they helped me with the essay review, so I admire you, you are a wonderful woman for me.

  19. Wow, you are a great woman, you did a great job to become yourself. I guess you had a good teacher while homeschoolng. I hired a qualified teacher for my 6 year old daughter, she has a great resume. She made it here . This is professional cv writing service .

  20. Rebecca, I really admire your determination and mental strength, as homeschooling five children must be a tough experience! Me and my wife are currently homeschooling our two kids and it’s really stressful. Sometimes we can’t find the right study materials to teach our children the proper way, especially when it comes to writing essays. Luckily there is a that really helps us out, as we can order sample essays and use them as a study material in our essay-writing lessons.
