Hey, I’m Jen!

I’m the voice behind Life Beyond the Lesson Plan.

I’m a wife, semi-retired homeschool mom, and curriculum developer. Welcome to my little corner of the web!

For many years, my life sort of revolved around my lesson plan. When my son graduated high school, I found I didn’t know what to do with the next phase of my life! 

That’s when I realized that there is actually…well, life beyond the lesson plan.

And so this site was born!

At Life Beyond the Lesson Plan, my goal is to provide a place you’ll love to hang out. Whether you’re looking for encouragement, ideas, fun new recipes, or homeschool resources, I’ve got you covered! 

You’ll find how-tos, tips and tricks, and organizational helps for the not-so-organized. After all, we moms wear a lot of hats, and it can be difficult to keep them all straight!

If you homeschool (or are looking for some fun extras for your kids), you’ll also find curriculum resources like notebooking pages, unit studies, and full subject resources in my store! 

Find out how to make learning relevant and fun for your students – and how to make your life as a homeschool mom just a bit easier!

And because mom life is more than organization and parenting, you’ll also find encouragement and resources to build your faith.

Please feel free to email me at jen@lifebeyondthelessonplan.com – I’d love to hear from you! 

I’m so glad you’ve joined me!
