Sharing my favorite books for homeschool moms is something I have been wanting to do for a while! Since most of us are gearing up for a fresh year of homeschooling now, it seemed like the perfect time to share a little book list of encouraging and inspiring books for homeschool moms with you! Every new homeschool year, I like to read a new, or old, to me book to refresh my heart. This year, I am re-visiting one of my favorites: A Pocketful of Pinecones. It definitely makes my favorites list, along with some other good books!

Here are my favorite books for homeschool moms that will encourage and inspire your hearts through your homeschool journey.
