June 2022 / Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog



What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and everything in between. Thanks for stopping by; I hope you stay awhile!


the schooling haus; an official (re)introduction.

welcome to this little corner of the web; I’m so happy you’re here!

for those of you who don’t already know me, I’m Marta and I’m a pretty simple gal. These days my titles include: wife to a nurse and a stay at home mama to three sweet boys.

I’m passionate about mothering my babies, rooting my family in Jesus and embracing biblical womanhood by creating an intentional home. I am a history + literature nerd, love iced coffee and am constantly dreaming of life on the homestead. I’m one of those let me try all the hobbies kinda gal too, so I always have a ton of projects on hand and in my mind.

you’ll usually find me: outside exploring + learning about nature with the boys, trying to make our home as cozy as possible, trying out some new recipe whilst listening a sermon / podcast, diy(ing), organizing + reorganizing something orrrrrr you’ll find me here: sharing all the things about our homeschooling journey.


No one tells you that the blogging realm is an over saturated place, filled with unhealthy competition. I learned the hard way that some people aren’t as nice as they appear online. Even though I started to feel a bit uneasy about the group of mom bloggers I associated with, I ignored all the red flags only to have several falling outs with people I grew to consider actual friends. I’m embarrassed, but I’m not going to sugar coat it — it was super painful process for me to accept that those friendships died as quickly as they started.

Being the person I am, I thought I could curb all that pain by letting my competitive side taking over and stretch myself to the max. I became a little obsessed with the numbers and getting all the collaborations — until I literally could not keep up with my own ambitions anymore. It literally felt like God took away all my energy for social media & writing for a few months that I had no choice but to step back.

I posted off and on for a few months, and then I finally did what I had to do… I archived over 500 posts on my blogging page, started a new personal instagram and promised myself that I wasn’t going to fall in the trap again.


This time around, I’m really searching for a like minded community and not letting the numbers consume me. I’ve also liberated myself from juggling aesthetically pleasing photos while attempting to juggle multiple niches at once in one place — which is why I am here, in the middle of the night, setting up this blogging space dedicated to our home school journey + new ways to approach learning.

I hope this place leaves you inspired and curious about home education and the beauty of learning because that’s where my heart is at the moment. I am so honored to have you follow along.
