This blog's mission is simple--to encourage moms who are married to non-Catholics and raising their children in the Faith. If you know a mom who needs a little encouragement in continuing her efforts, I would be delighted if you would share Kathleen's Catholic with her. Thank you!

The Princess and The Pack Mule or Why I Home School

It's that time of year for homeschooling moms--when the yellow bus lumbering down the neighborhood street is looking pretty inviting. For some reason, March is the month when most moms want to throw in the towel. Let's face it: In this lifestyle of educating at home, you and your wee-ones are waging a countercultural war, one that's being fought both inside and out. I know you know what I mean. Yes, it can all get a bit tiring. And as Catholic homeschoolers, the burden can feel a little extra heavy at times. But fear not! Click here to visit The Totus Tuus family blog for a healthy check on your perspective and read The Princess and The Pack Mule or Why I Home School by Denise Mira of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. Enjoy and God bless.


  1. I don't have children yet, but I am seriously considering homeschooling them.

  2. Thanks for linking Kathleen AND for honoring the author. My husband liked that article so much. I hope it touches your readers as well.

  3. For Catholic Chicks...
    Good for you. The earlier you begin homeschooling your child the better, instead of putting him in preschool or kindergarten, as we did. It took time to take out what the classroom experience put in, and, beside, those early years together are so precious, and there are so many wonderful curriculums available to help you through.

    For JMJ...
    Many thanks for bringing this article to my attention. I also visited Denise's blog and put her link on my page, Catholic Links for Catholic Moms. Thanks again.
