Are you looking to inspire or motivate your teen? I can’t rave enough about TJEd High, & right now they are enrolling for their winter semester!

My 13-year-old has loved his experience this fall: reading a classic weekly, discussing it via a safe, moderated forum, & receiving video mentoring to go deeper in thought and study.

Use the code “WHCU” for a whopping 25% OFF everything at Dover Publications through Dec 31st!

Snag educational stocking stuffers and learning gifts like Jane Austen paper dolls (love!), historical sticker/coloring books, and their popular discovery kits on fun topics, like this one on baseball!

December is the perfect time to check out Reading Eggs if you have a child who’s learning to read!

Sign up for their 4 week trial FREE w/o any credit card required, & voila–educational fun for them while you wrap presents & get things done (or take a nap)!  

Yay: Stitch Fix has extended their holiday offer, meaning you can STILL sign up for your very first fix and the styling fee will be waived!

If malls are just not your thing, especially this time of year (hate ’em!), SF could be perfect for you. And remember they style for plus sizes now too!

The introverted mom’s advent calendar

Written by Jamie C. Martin of Simple Homeschool

Hey there, fellow introverted mama. The countdown has begun.

We can face the upcoming weeks with wonder, delight, and sacred stillness.

OR we can crash and burn–driving ourselves into the ground as we attempt to do more and be more and have more and shop more. Which will we choose?

This time of year can be a challenge for moms of any personality type, but I think introverted mothers are especially susceptible to ending up drained and depleted before Christmas even arrives. 

So I had a gift made that will help us. And I hope you LOVE it as much as I do!
