In Nurturing My Nest, Leah Simpson shares from her wealth of experience and expertise in all areas of the home. I have known Leah for many years and have admired how intentional and engaged she is with her family. She and Tim and their five children have created a warm and hospitable home where guests feel welcome and look forward to being invited back. I am drawn to her gracious spirit and genuine walk with Christ.

I recommend her book to all young mothers who long to “train up their children in the way they should go” (Ps. 22:6). Nurturing My Nest will give you great ideas and suggestions for education, home organization, meal planning and so much more!

In our over-committed culture that seems to be pulling families apart, Leah gives us a tool for rediscovering the power and importance of the Christian home. This treasure is a guide no homeschooling parent should be without!

Nurturing My Nest is a refreshing look at the ins and outs of homeschooling from a mother who is a master at designing a curriculum to fit the unique giftedness of the whole child.

The product of a homeschool education herself, Leah has not only created individual programs for each of her five children, but she has also taught countless others to do so as well. In this comprehensive handbook, you will find helpful insights, practical ideas, and spiritual encouragement to support you in your homeschool journey. 

Nurturing My Nest is sure to become a treasured resource in your library.
