    Oh my! I can't say enough good things about this book!! I have so many highlights to go back to. If Morning Time is something you've considered for you homeschool, this is the "how to" to get you started.

    Better Together gave me the motivation I needed to refocus the remaining year. Chapter after chapter I was encouraged and inspired to be more diligent in my Morning Time efforts. I can't wait for tomorrow morning to get here!

    A great tool for any homeschool family that wants to start incorporating morning time into their routine. We already do a version of morning time, but I did picked up some good pointers on how to make our time better and more efficient.

    Loved this book! Pam gives some great practical advice on implementing morning time in your home. I especially liked the interviews at the end of several of the chapters of real moms and how they utilize morning time. This gave me some great perspective. I also appreciated the resources she gives through out and the list at the end of the book. I loved that Pam emphasized the creating a strong and lovely relationship with your children is at the heart of morning time rather another box to check Loved this book!

    Pam Barnhill has been encouraging me in my homeschool journey for ages through her podcasts, but in Better Together she took the encouragement and practical tips to a whole new level. She makes my goals for morning time feel so attainable in the way that only she and her team of seasoned mom testimonials could. My children are young, so it’s easy to be focused on our struggles instead of our goals.

    I loved this book! I love the thoughts of morning time, but the application has always stumped me. This book solves that problem! This was a homeschooling book that, as soon as I finished it, I started re-reading it with a highlighter in hand. I’ve only done that with a few books.

    An excellent resource for any homeschooling mom. Filled to the brim with great ideas and recommendations for how to start if morning time is new to you, or how to beef up your time together if you’re already utilizing it.
