A note from Jamie: Have you gotten your free copy of Give Your Child the ANCIENT World yet? It’s ONLY available for a few more days, and I don’t want you to miss it!

“Love of learning” can sound like a vague, mysterious, unattainable concept.

We desperately want our kids to have one, of course, but how do we kindle it in the midst of the busyness, routines, and responsibilities of homeschooling life?

Thankfully, a love of learning isn’t as complicated as it sounds, and we can take practical, small steps to nurture or repair it.

Why hello, spring! It’s so nice to finally see you again!

Well, the Martin family had a life-changing moment earlier this week–one that’s been five years in the making!

IMG_1960Our UPS lady (not knowing that a piece of my heart was in the box) casually dropped this off on the porch.

I can’t even begin to describe all the feelings, all the tears, all the answered prayers represented here–AND I can’t wait for you to open the covers and see for yourself!

So, so grateful–and now is a perfect time to preorder Give Your Child the World because Amazon discounted the Kindle version by an extra $1 last week!

After you order, make sure you take a moment to request the preorder bonus I made for you, Give Your Child the ANCIENT World! It’s only available for three more weeks.

Thanks for all the support. It has meant so much.
