About Lisa: I am a stay-at-home mom raising three incredible kids with the most wonderful hubby. I created this planner for other moms, just like me, that are desperate to keep their sanity while juggling our many responsibilities. Homeschooling can be challenging. I’ve offered this planner for free because, as a homeschooler myself, I understand that our budgets oftentimes are stretched to the limit. My prayer is that this planner helps you to organize your time so that there is more of it to spend with your precious family.
