This journey can be challenging so having an expert coach at your side is not only comforting but Melisa also is pretty good at kicking your butt if you need it!
Community is wonderful. Community outside of Facebook is even better. We've found that so many moms are looking for an alternative to Facebook and now we are walking forward with being able to implement it. The community is one of the places to get coaching from me, it will also allow you to connect with the hundreds of other TFW moms, as well as share lesson plans, main lesson pictures and much more.
Thinking Feeling Willing puts all your homeschooling, parenting and partnering needs in one place!
Jennifer Taylor says...
I left a very large and well known private Waldorf School, because it was managed too much like a business not a Waldorf School. Both my husband and myself independently found Waldorf Essentials and we both LOVE it. It had the heart and function of a true Waldorf education with the practicality of a homeschooling program!
Anna Katherine Curfman says...
Melisa is an extraordinary mentor. I chose to homeschool our three children (grades 3, 6, 7) this year after they had been in a Waldorf school. It felt like a herculean task, but Melisa's calmness, wisdom, and guidance has seen us through the year. Without her program and her help, I would have given up by Christmas. I knew from all of my exposure to Steiner that the inner place of the teacher is paramount and Melisa's Thinking Feeling Willing program delivers all of the steps that I needed to prepare myself to teach my children and to do the inner work I needed to hold the classroom space. The groups she holds for us are excellent and a really great place to connect and support other homeschooling families. My words cannot express my gratitude for Melisa and her program.
Then two years later she said this...
Two years later - Melisa is the best coach. This is an incredible program. Without her, I would have given up ten times...When I am feeling defeated, I ask for help, I connect in her groups - I get nourished and taught and coached. She has so many amazing videos as well as many handouts, curriculum etc. Cannot say enough good things about this program! The mom lessons are the key - so much good stuff!
