I posted the below message in the week before Irma hit our beloved SW Florida area. To update, Irma came ashore on September 10th, 2017 for her second time in Florida at Marco Island.  Please see my Blog Post for the details of how we fared. 

Cheerful Heart Academy is still in business. Please remember that this is a one woman show and that woman still homeschools her own child and has a family - I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can. If I don't get back to you within two weeks after you've contacted me, (unless it's an emergency) please try again. Some of our services are still not working properly here and it's very possible that I may have just not seen or heard your message. 

Again, thank you all for your patience - and please keep praying for all of us in the state of Florida. Many of us have a long road of recovery ahead of us.

Cheerful Heart Academy is in the current 'cone of uncertainty' of Hurricane Irma. The physical location of the school records is located in Naples, Florida, which is on the Southwest coast of the peninsula. All records have been backed up on a computer, an external hard drive, and a USB memory stick and will be taken with the owner if evacuation occurs. 

If you are trying to reach CHA, or have been trying to reach CHA over the past few days, we have been in hurricane preparation mode. Please understand that it may be next week before I'm able to get back to you, but I will get to every email and phone call at some point within the next two weeks. If you have contacted CHA via phone or email and have not heard from Lynda at CHA by September 21st, please contact again.

Thank you all for your patience.

Please pray with me for protection for all of us in the state of Florida.

CHA Family Showcase

Just recently, as I was doing the business of sending out attendance reminders and communicating with parent/teachers about renewing their students, one parent/teacher asked if I would look over her student's blog/website as he is very excited for me to see it. I did, and I am impressed! That little exchange sparked an idea - I should have a place on my website where we could share the links to blogs and websites that CHA students and their families have built - and the CHA Family Showcase page was born.

You'll find that the links below will change over time. And, please, if you find a broken link, let me know so that I can take care of it. 


The Clean Eating Teen is a very well put together, well thought out blog series about eating what's good for you by a very nice young gentleman. Matthew tests a product, then posts a review about it, and he has plenty of give aways on his blog. Check his website out at:

Lilla Rose is a company that allows women to be their own boss by selling beautiful hair accessories and Jan Hoffman, one of our parent/teachers is a Lilla Rose consultant! To shop with her, check out her link here - . You can also follow her facebook page by going here - .
