Through my home schooling years of a decade and then some, there have been some really lonely times when I really craved the support of a friend.; more specifically, a female friend who shared the same goals and intentions in raising her children. There have been a few in between times where I had a close friend, but our paths changed by moves or the home school journey for them was over and they were moving on to different horizons. One thing that I could reach for during those times was the books and conferences of Sally Clarkson. You can read her biography and receive a free e-book from her site http://www.ITAKEJOY.com. I highly recommend her books on parenting, not just for homeschoolers, but intentional parents with a legacy of faith in mind for their children. Sally’s books have seemed like a hug and affirmation that I wasn’t alone in my ministry as a mother. All you have to do is go to her site http://www.ITakeJoy.com and subscribe at the bottom of her last post to receive the EBook in your email folder.
