I listened to this speech by Marlene Peterson of librariesofhope.com via Facebook Live a few weeks ago. She gave it as the keynote address for a family home education conference at American Heritage School on Saturday March 24. 2018. This is that time of year when as homeschool moms we need a HUGE boost of support to get through to the end of the school year. Listening to Marlene will give you that boost. Listen and enjoy! You can read the text here. She gives many ideas to surround yourself and your children with truth, goodness, and beauty. Truth, goodness, and beauty were the themes of the retreat I attended just last month. Secluded away (from kids), several homeschool moms and I got to laugh, cry, bond, eat chocolate, and go hiking (pictured above). We talked about what truth, beauty, and goodness are and how to expose our kids to all of it. This speech by Marlene resonates with that retreat. P.S. you can feel the boost every day by listening to Marlene’s podcasts. I listen to them at the end of the day when I’m getting ready for bed as she is so soothing. Marlene helps me feel that all is right with the world.
