Carrie De Francisco is a wife and "retired" homeschooling mom of two homeschool graduates living and learning in Southern CA. She is the host of the popular podcast, Coffee With Carrie Homeschool Help, speaker, author of several books including, Just Breathe (and Take a Sip of Coffee): Homeschool in Step with God, and a Wild + Free contributor. Through her consulting services, books, blog articles, and podcast, she helps moms simplify their homeschooling one step at a time, one day at a time, and one cup of coffee at a time. Carrie is an out-of-the-box thinker which is probably why she was an outside-of-the-curriculum-box homeschooler. She can be found drinking her favorite latte, walking in nature, reading her bible, cooking a mean pot of red beans, and laughing at herself (and crazy ideas).
