What People Are Saying about Flourish

“Mary Jo Tate’s Flourish is a comprehensive and creative corrective to a homeschool community that has lost sight of one our basic values—quality of life. It is an intensely practical and wise book. If you are homeschooling or intend to, read it.”

Michael Card
Award-winning author and singer-songwriter


“I have to confess that some days we’re just surviving at our house. It’s tough to juggle homeschooling, family life, and a home business. And I know I’m not the only homeschool mom out there struggling. We all could use some encouragement every now and then. Filled with practical ideas, Flourish will help you to finally put down the burdens God never intended you to carry. Mary Jo will help you move beyond survival and actually flourish in the roles God has given you. A must-have for every homeschool mama’s nightstand!”

Gena Suarez
Publisher, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine


Flourish is filled to the brim with inspirational stories of a seasoned mother who has lived a life of faith and integrity and who shares from wisdom invested in the trenches of homeschooling. My friend Mary Jo clearly defines exceedingly practical ideas for goal setting, life management, and making the homeschooling life work for you.”

Sally Clarkson
Author of Seasons of the Heart and coauthor of Educating the WholeHearted Child


“This book is a mentor’s manual for navigating the homeschool years. You can go to it over and over again for wisdom and answers to what you’re facing. Invaluable.”

Welcome to Flourish at Home!

Moms at home are often exhausted, overloaded, and hovering on the brink of burnout. It’s easy to be paralyzed by focusing on everything we can’t do and to become trapped in a crisis-management approach to life. False guilt only adds to the burden.

In 21 years of mothering (the last 12 as a single mom), homeschooling, and running a home business, I’ve found a lot of  practical ways to trade in the juggling act for a more peaceful, balanced life. I’m definitely not Supermom though—I’ve personally test-driven a lot of mistakes so you don’t have to. I’m going to tell it to you straight—the good, the bad, and the ugly.

My hope for this blog is to offer encouragement, inspiration, and practical strategies to help you flourish at home!
