What I Do – By Contributor Mama Kathrine

“So what do you do all day?” An innocent, conversational question. But this time, I was speechless.   We had invited some friends for dinner, a cute newlywed couple. The husband we’d known for some time, and we enjoyed a great evening catching up together. We got to know the wife and learned all about their plans for the future.

Investing in Children – By Contributor Mama Michelle

I am a mother of five children and we have been on an educational journey at home for the last two years.  Several thoughts I’ve had of education and children have transformed since then.   In social settings I am reminded how much my thoughts have changed.  People talk about ideas that were once normal to me and now seem so foreign.  One of these ideas that has stuck out to me has been the...
