My recommendations this week:
Wow, wow, wow–I have devoured this beautifully written memoir in the past week. What an encouragement for parents to nurture childhood interests and passions–a must-read, not only for those whose kids are on the spectrum, but for all of us!
We finally finished our yearlong Little House study, and trying to choose what to read next was quite the decision! I followed an inner nudge and this story of character, following God-given dreams, and perseverance in the midst of poverty & struggles has been inspiring all of us as we gather around the table each morning.
