To quote one of my favorite authors, "Judge tenderly of me..." as I post my first vlog to celebrate the growth of The Homeschool Village and introduce myself on a more personal level!
Today at The Homeschool Village we are sharing resources which have been the most useful in our homeschool endeavors. My resource is not a title... but rather a family... the Clarkson family. Many of you are already familiar with Clay and Sally Clarkson. I hope you are also coming to know their children as they, too, are publishing books and releasing CDs which will inspire your family.
The first title I read as a homeschooler was Educating the WholeHearted Child. Clay and Sally not only offer a substantial quantity of practical helps in this title, they strike at the essence of what I feel makes a homeschool successful... reaching your child's heart.
While I have a stack of Clarkson gems, I will just share two more with you... the companion works from Sally, The Mission of Motherhood and The Ministry of Motherhood. I enjoy building my company and serving in the church, but these roles aren't THE mission of my life. Our mission to meet the needs of our families is our truest, most fulfilling, ministry. Sally will help you embrace this pursuit. She will inspire you to pour out your talents to those who need and treasure them most.
Sally contacted me this week in a personal way, because that is precisely who she and Clay are. They are a real family, sharing this journey with us. They understand the same trials and celebrate the same victories. I hope you will get to know them through their work at WholeHeart Ministries.
Thank you, again, for being a part of The Homeschool Village. I look forward to knowing you as we journey together!
From our hearth to your home,
