You might have noticed a few changes to the site recently. That is because Love, Teach, and Learn is working through a rebrand. I am beyond ecstatic to reveal to you the new name for this little corner of the web. Love, Teach, and Learn will soon be renamed Joyous Wonder!
It is a bitter-sweet change. I will miss the old website and design, but I am also looking forward to the new improvements.
So, Why the Change?
Three years ago, I began searching for simple quotes and photos of inspiration. I needed some encouragement in my life.
As a homeschooling mom of 5, working from home to help support my family, you might imagine my schedule can be pretty hectic. I was overwhelmed by the amount of responsibility on my plate.
Finding time for reflection and prayer was a struggle. I needed a chance to come up for air from my daily work. So, I looked for anything to help remind me of the simple miracles and wonders that God gives to us each day.
Joyous Wonder was born out of my own need and desire for encouragement for mothers amid busy days. There are so many things calling for our attention. Life can get so busy, and I craved that reminder to slow down, enjoy my family and find time with the Lord. So, I decided to, instead, be that support for other moms like me.
Just One Problem.
At the time, I had heard of suggestions for bloggers and social media accounts to focus on one specific niche. So, I decided to create a separate social media account for mothers who needed hope and support. That account became the beginning of Joyous Wonder.
There, I shared the support that I craved, hoping to bless other submerged mothers such as myself. I reminded moms to enjoy each miraculous moment, to take the time to tend to themselves, and discover the joyous wonders of a child. These reminders, in turn, helped me to focus on the things that truly mattered in my personal life.
Soon after, I realized that I was unable to juggle both social media accounts along with this blog. As a result, Love, Teach, and Learn was put on the back burner for a bit.
It took me some time to finally realize that I did not have to keep my passions separate. That motherhood and home education go hand in hand. I decided to simplify my life by combining the accounts, regardless of the niche advice previously mentioned.

Would it help to find a small corner of hope in a sea of digital information and overstimulation?
Instead of the current website focused on primary education, this space will feature a blog centered around faith, wellness, and home education. The change would allow me to be more personable and authentic to myself. Which in turn, gives me the ability to serve this community most efficiently with the gifts that God has given me.
Transitioning from Love, Teach, and Learn.
The blog will now shift from concentrating solely on educational resources. In addition to sharing my homeschooling journey and educational tools, I will now include encouraging posts to remind us both of the importance of wellness and building one another in faith.
If these topics interest you, I hope you are just excited about this development as I am. My goal is to have the blog, social accounts, email, and the Teachers Pay Teachers shop renamed and rebranded by the end of the year! I will be slowly updating each, one by one.
The website link will, at some point over the months, change from www.loveteachandlearn.com to www.joyous-wonder.com. Save both links, just in case. (Do not forget the dash between joyous and wonder.)
The current newsletter for subscribers has been paused and will be discontinued. A new subscription will be available in the new year. You will also see, a major overhaul in the FREE RESOURCE LIBRARY resource library over the coming months.
The former Love, Teach, and Learn socials will eventually be closed and moved over to new Joyous Wonder accounts. Announcements will be updated on Love, Teach, and Learn socials and update all social links on the site once the switch has been made complete.

A lot of work went into creating the Love, Teach, and Learn website, so here is a little keepsake video.
Joyous Wonder will have as much effort into ensuring that this will be a welcoming space, as well. It’s my hope that after a long day, you can come here with your favorite beverage and a cozy blanket. I imagine that as you linger, you will find a smile on your face. Maybe an exhale of relief that everything is going to be okay.
