When I was denied acceptance by several co-ops, for our beliefs, I struggled, feeling like I would never find my place or get the help/love we needed in our homeschool journey. Then my first homeschool mom friend introduced me to school of the Minds. They accepted, loved, supported and befriended us with open arms. I can not even begin to describe the love we’ve felt and how at home this group has made us feel. I will forever be grateful that we found them. They. Are. My. Tribe.
