I love meeting homeschooling women who don’t have their act together, nor do they pretend. Sarah Mackenzie is one of those—and I love that the stuff she writes and talks about is inspiring for non-homeschooling families as well. She’s all about talking about basic stuff, reminding us that those things can go a long way towards making us saner and healthier.
Spiral notebooks, reading aloud, working from a place of rest, and just asking for what you want: all basic things. All good things. That’s what Sarah’s about, and that’s what we talk about in this next episode of The Simple Show.
As always, subscribe to The Simple Show via Soundcloud, Stitcher, or iTunes (leave a quick review there, if you’d be so kind!), and head to Audible if you’d like to try out audiobooks with a free book.
