Julie Bogart is here with us today sharing all of her incredible insight and inspiration with us! Get ready to elevate your homeschool AND your motherhood journey!

If you know, you know…you’ll get why I’m so excited! If you don’t know yet, you will after today! Julie has been my go-to resource for all things modern homeschool since I had my own children. I’ve read her book more than once, I listen to her insightful podcast on a regular basis, I use her curriculum, been inspired by her poetry tea times, and just constantly recommend her and her work to all homeschool families and educators.

Julie’s Bio:

Julie Bogart is the popular voice of common sense and compassion in the homeschool community. She's the creator of the innovative writing program called Brave Writer and the popular fast-growing practice called Poetry Teatime. She’s the founder of a homeschool coaching community called The Brave Learner Home. She home educated her five children for 17 years who are now globe-trotting adults. Julie draws from her work with tens of thousands of homeschool families over the last 20+ years, and her own homeschool journey to enrich the homeschool and parenting experience. Her writing program includes award-winning online writing classes and paradigm-shifting writing manuals that allow parents and kids to become allies in the writing process. Julie is also the author of the best-selling book The Brave Learner and host of the popular podcast “A Brave Writer’s Life in Brief.” She enjoys raising African violets and playing with her brand new granddaughter. Julie lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.
