Thank you for your interest in writing Stone Soup Homeschool Network. SSHN endeavors to include a wide scope of information with fresh content, addressing and exploring all facets of home-based education. We are interested in articles and stories that educate, inspire, and encourage readers. Areas of interest include articles about family life and homeschooling: Academic pursuits, encouragement for moms, creative homemaking, improving organization, raising children, time management, involving dads and drawing on God's strength. We also welcome conference information and reviews, state and national homeschooling trends and political affairs. (Those political issues which pertain to homeschooling exclusively.) Neither articles that are critical of any particular group or faith, nor those that possess a theme that is contrary to traditional Judeo-Christian values will be accepted.
