    Thank you so much for the free books. Your website has been such a blessing to me. I have homeschooled 5 children through highschool and the past two years I’ve taught my youngest who is now 11 years old. I wish I had the resources that are available now when my older children were at home. The difference is phenomenal and it’s thanks to moms like you. God bless you for all you do.

    Thank you so much for this. I found this through Ann Voskamp’s site, Holy Experience. I have strayed away from Charlotte Mason, but have been wanting to re-implement her ideas into our home school.

    Thanks so much. Have a blessed week!

    Ann ‘sent’ me, and since it was Ann who was ‘sending’ I knew it would be valuable. I’m so glad she did! Thank you for the resource, I look forward to all it has to say.

    Sonya, I was in the middle of my “Eight-year-winter-slump” when I read “Smooth and Easy Days”. It snapped me out of the doldrums and was just the boost I needed to set my feet back on this path of homeschooling and take off running again. It encouraged me, challenged me, and best of all, renewed my hope and my vision. Blessings ~ JLM

    I just read this–it’s great! I am going to implement it today, with one of my big bugaboos–getting dishes done after a meal. Thank you!

    :

    Thank you for this e-book. I was so encouraged as I read through it to realize that I can instill good habits into my children through the plan described in the book. I especially appreciated the encouraging nature of it. It is easy to become overwhelmed, especially when you realize you have made some mistakes, but the encouraging and positive tone of this book restores hope! Thanks for the great information and for making it available.

    Thank you so much for making such wonderful resources available. I home school 4. 2 elementary age girls. My son who just turned 5 and has Down Syndrome and his two year old sister… who comes along on his ride through our own version of Early Intervention Preshool at home. Thank you for sharing.

    :

    I just finished reading Smooth and Easy Days. Big sigh of relief…. Thank you for breaking habit training down into steps! I must say that every time I read Charlotte’s words about habit training (and there are a lot!), I get tense and feel guilty and just want to give up. But this e-reader helps me see the possibility of how to make it happen. We appreciate the work you put into this!

    :

    This was SO practical, eye opening, and helpful! Thank you for sharing it with us. I agree with Lanaya that breaking it down into steps really helped me envision how I would approach this.

    This was absolutely wonderful….a book I have needed to read for a long long time.
    Parents have good intensions…but somehow we get a little lost along the way..and having solid points to look on and help guide our path is a true blessing..

    Thank You!!!

    This was wonderful! Listened to some of this at the convention at MassHope, but it’s great to have it on hand again. I love the Laying Rails book too. Thanks for this free offer! I’m sharing with all of my friends too.
