Hi! Welcome to I Choose Joy!

My name is Gena, and I’m the mom of eight children, ages 17 down to 6.   I have homeschooled them from the beginning.  This blog is a place to share my joy in my family, in my home, and in homeschooling.  I love encouraging others in this crazy homeschool life we’ve chosen, providing reviews of curriculum so you can make informed decisions, providing tips for homemaking, and sharing about our everyday life!
