Hi! I am Tiffany Thomas Ellman and I am the single Mama to 3 beautiful girls. I joined Home Grown Families when it was 6 months old and have loved every second of growing it into what it is today~ almost 4 years later! Blogging has provided me with opportunities that I would never have had any other way. The people that I have met have become so important to me and such a source of strength that I don’t know how I ever did without them.
The Art of teaching is the Art of assisting discovery. ~Mark Van Doren
My favorite thing in the whole wide world is homeschooling my girls! I love spending all day with them learning about who they are, what they love, what they’re good at, and what’s important to them. Being the one that is there when they need help or have a problem is the most amazing gift I have been given. I am loving the opportunity to build a relationship with them that will give us a firm foundation as we enter the teen years.
It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless. ~L.R. Knost
One of the reasons I homeschool is that I want to protect the absolutely wonderful hearts of my girls. They are sweet, kind, giving, and have a heart for the less fortunate. So many of us walk around, as adults, carrying scars from our time in school and I want to save them from that trauma. It’s just not a necessary part of life.
