We would like to thank you for your cd on curriculum advice. I say 'we' because my husband enjoys the new, relaxed me! It has allowed me to breathe and relax in our homeschooling journey. Well, I have only had your CDs for a couple months but listen to them ALL the time, along with the virtuous woman series, which my sister-in-law and i just LOVE. I always come away from them peaceful and happy to be a helpmeet and mommy!
I’ve purchased your CDs on Curriculum Advice. Fantastic!! I am so happy to share them with younger mothers and fathers who struggle with “playing school”. How I wish I would have had such information when I was starting out, but how thankful I am that others now have those such as yourself willing to impart wisdom.
