Two months ago I had glorious plans of sharing a series of posts here reflecting on the early years of homeschooling. I published the first post — Holy Leisure — and received some great feedback. The response motivated me to keep on keepin’ with the series. Then I had to step away from the blog a bit to focus on the actual business of homeschooling. Some series that was, huh?
Funny thing, the posts are already written. Back in September a friend asked me to lead a talk to a group of new or discerning homeschooling moms here in Des Moines. My initial response was to decline the invitation given I probably need to consume advice and not serve it at this point. But as I prayed about it, the Holy Spirit really placed a bunch of words on my heart. So I transferred those words to the computer and soon realized I had a decent amount of material to share not only with the moms who met with me in my home, but also with the readers here at my digital home.
I will get those posts published here soon.
Had I been staying on schedule, I would have shared a resource that has positively affected my approach to homeschooling. I actually gushed about it during that September meeting with my friends, and I mentioned to them I wanted to invite the book’s author here for an interview. Maybe I would even host a giveaway.
Well, that interview never happened. And I don’t have a giveaway to announce. I’m full of nothing, today, huh?
But wait! I DO have a special discount for you on this very resource that has greatly helped me foster “holy leisure” within my homeschooling routines. This book here:

The complete set includes three components: 1) a PDF version of the Amazon best-selling book, 2) four hours of audio conversations with Sarah and other leading homeschool professionals, and 3) a printable companion journal to walk you through taking the big ideas from the book and making them come alive in your home.
