    Sonya, you are awesome! I know you said in the forum that you were thinking of doing this and I was hoping you wouldn’t forget or change your mind. Thank you so much!!

  2. Kristin from cmersinga

    Wow! Thanks, Sonya! This is great timing for this see-saw Mama!

  3. Linda

    Thank you so much, Sonya! I am just going through your Charlotte Mason All-Day Seminar DVDs and this will be a great supplement to that…BTW, the seminar is very well done and easy to follow along. Thank you for that too…

    Sonya, you are amazing. I know you have an autistic child in addition to your other children (I also have an autistic child, plus 4 others, so I know how difficult that is) and for you to be able to have the time to bless others in such a way is proof of the Lord blessing and sustaining you!
    The timing on this is amazing….page 17 was exactly what I have been struggling with (I just happened to open to that page).

    Tears of joy and thanksgiving for you and your family!

  10. Joni

    Thank you! I really enjoyed it. It was very encouraging and helpful.

  11. Erna

    Thank you so much for sharing this resource with us! I really enjoyed reading it and there are some things that could enhance our own home environment. I have moments of being “too fussy” especially with a child that has a heart condition. I have to back off a bit in some areas and not cause them to catch my reactions to certain insects. :0)
