“If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!” This phase is so cliché because it’s true.

Your energy is a precious resource. Let’s learn about managing it and multiplying it by finding pockets of stillness in your hectic days and tapping into your source of deep renewal so that you can give at your greatest capacity. Sometimes less is more. Your efforts are enough. You’ve got this, mama!

Jessica Croker is the mother of six children and has been homeschooling for at least twenty years. She is a registered yoga teacher, has a BFA in Fine Art from Utah State University, and is currently working on a master’s degree in art therapy and counseling through Saint Mary of the Woods College. Throughout her homeschooling career she’s operated from the belief that creativity is an essential part of our divine nature and a key way in which we experiment with and use our agency in this world. She has created a home full of art supplies and piles of kid-made projects, taught many homeschool co-op classes, and has graduated a few kids who are off to college. The Croker family lives in the woods with two cats, a gecko, and chickens in Manassas, VA.
