About Grace, Grow & Edify

We help new and not-so-new home school parents get home schooling right by teaching them the steps to creating highly engaged children through time management, organizational strategies, and education tailored to each child’s learning style so that the entire family can embrace the homeschool experience with ease.

Do you glimpse the organized lives of other homeschoolers and wonder how they manage

to maintain a clean house,
tailor lesson plans to each child’s individual learning styles,
volunteer in the community,
offer great hands-on learning experiences,
serve healthy meals

— and do it all with deep-seated, overwhelming joy?

I’m Courtney Messick, homeschool mom to three, and I’ve been homeschooling for a decade now. When I first began homeschooling, we had a lot of tear-filled days. I didn’t understand the profound effect individual learning styles can have on family dynamics. I didn’t have a good grasp on all the logistical details we needed to succeed. Although I understood organization, I didn’t know how to effectively integrate time management, curricula decisions, the needs of my very interactive children, and all the responsibilities which go along with homeschooling and managing a home. I wanted to creating a peaceful homeschool routine which worked for every single person in my family, but I spent a lot of time reinventing the wheel.

Maybe you’re in that spot right now: struggling to reinvent the homeschool wheel, because the one you have right now just isn’t working.

Maybe you’re a brand-new homeschool mom, paralyzed by the seemingly overwhelming tasks before you.

Maybe you’ve been homeschooling for a while, but despite your best intentions, you still can’t seem to find your groove.

Maybe you’re facing a major life change, and you just don’t know where to start.

Maybe your children crave structure and routine, but organization and scheduling doesn’t come easily for you.

Maybe you feel like the well-run homeschool is elusive, just out of reach, and you’re ready to give up.

But I’m here to tell you it is possible.

You can have a joy-filled, peace-filled, organized-yet-flexible homeschool.

And best of all, you don’t have to struggle alone.

During my years organizing my own home, leading GROW (the local non-profit homeschool organization I founded), and hosting over one hundred homeschool events in my small community in Texas, I’ve learned how to maximize my time with the least amount of pain. I’ve learned to identify– and implement! — the key building pieces every homeschool family needs to create a solid foundation and a stable rhythm. And I want to share those organizational strategies with you, so you don’t have to keep struggling alone like I did at first.

I’ve been meeting with local homeschool families since 2013 — both in one-on-one consulting sessions and as a speaker — sharing what I’ve learned about utilizing schedules, routines, rhythms to create a peaceful, joy-filled homeschool environment. And now, I’m extending those same encouragements to you, no matter where you are geographically, and no matter where you are in your homeschool journey,

Are you ready to tune out the noise and distraction?

Are you ready to stop worrying about other homeschool families are doing?

Are you ready to transform your homeschool from chaotic to peaceful, and your time management from stressed to joyful?

Are you ready to leave overwhelm and discord behind?

Are you ready to lead a more organized, more peaceful homeschool life?

Pull up a chair, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and let’s tackle these obstacles together.

Here’s how I can help.
