When Louvenia Wilkerson became a widow at 40 years old, grief and motherhood intersected in deeply difficult ways. The mother of three began a journey that caused her to question everything. Those questions led her to take her big pause from homeschooling, from entrepreneurship, and everything she identified with, including religion. Five years later, Lou and her children have happily transitioned into unschooling and taking a slow, steady approach to managing grief. With plans to own an RV and travel as an unschooling and road schooling family, life is looking good for Lou and her tribe. #POCinSDE

She has recently become a bit of a minimalist and a nomad by downsizing, leaving their 3-story home, selling her business, traveling and preparing for life on the road as a full time RV-er. Yes! Unschooling to the fullest in every aspect of life!
