Brain Power Family is all about smart ideas for living your best life with your family.

Formally, Brain Power Boy, this website was all boy! But, I have expanded! I still cover boys’ learning, the importance of play,  learning styles, and natural learning as they relate to boys.  I do reviews of unique, high quality books–actually the best books for boys!, toys and products and provide homeschool unit studies (not only for homeschoolers!) on a variety of topics.  However, I now provide even more ideas and have them for all kids including plenty of activities, book lists, and gift ideas.

Plus, I have branched out to include recipes, DIY, crafts and more that moms will love. I am thrilled to bring you ways to make and save money as well.

Bascially, I believe that family is so important that I want to help you find the best and smartest ideas for your life, so you can spend your time making incredible memories with your kids!

I have a special spot in my heart for helping. Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you that I am always helping people out. I love nothing more than providing the best resources.  I am a huge research person and love to dig in and find the best ways to do things.

I am fascinated by learning.  Watching my son experience learning in many different ways got me interested in researching finding out how kids and adults learn.

I have read countless books, searched the web and essentially dived into learning information head first.  I just have to share this info with you–it is really awesome and helpful!

I decided to try my hand at blogging because beyond researching things, I love to write.  I started out sharing all the great books, toys, events, websites, and resources I have found with other parents, grandparents and anyone else interested in learning and ended up here.

I am excited to share my passions with you and I hope you will enjoy the sense of community on Brain Power Family.

We can all help each other learn smart ways of doing things, spending our money and enjoying our days in order to have rich, fun, and interesting family lives.

Lifetime learning is one of the most important gifts we can give our kids (and ourselves!) and I hope this site will be a great resource for you.
