I have reviewed for The Homeschool Review Crew and The Old Schoolhouse Magazine website for several years now, reviewed for Timberdoodle for a season, served on the inaugural DK Advisory team, and have reviewed independently for other companies as well.  We enjoy trying new things, sharing our thoughts, helping other homeschoolers find something new, and even finding the perfect programs for us that we didn't even know we needed!

As I post reviews I try to link them here into loose subject categories.  Obviously, there may be some that overlap "subject" areas, so be sure to check out the whole list and see what interests you.  When you see a program listed multiple times, it is usually because we've loved it enough to continue using it or to review it again, so I always try to share updates or different/new features!  If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

If you are interested in having Mom's Heart review your curriculum or other family friendly products, please feel free to email me at and be sure to put the words "review request" somewhere in the subject line.  We are Charlotte Mason/living book oriented, thus I prefer to review curriculum that fits well into this lifestyle, or is easily adapted to be CM-friendly.  We will happily consider living books, board/card games, movies, music, educational toys, science kits, art/handicraft supplies, nature study materials, apps and planning/support materials for the homeschool parent.  Essentially, it should be educational or promote critical or creative thinking, and it must be family-friendly!  Email me, and hopefully we can work something out!
