Ep. #8: Put on Your Brave Pants
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.
