What does the family have to do with liberty? Why should youth care about this?
Thomas Jefferson once said that the tree of liberty should be refreshed every once in a while with the blood of patriots. What is the tree of liberty? How does it connect to the family tree? Tree of Life Mothering is sponsoring an event on May 6-7 to help youth explore the connections between liberty, the classics, self-government, family, virtue, and royalty. It will be at building #1 at the county fairgrounds in Farmington, Utah. All youth ages 14-19 are invited to attend. It involves the following:
a talent show
