Life changing!

I’m not the type of person that practices gratitud... but with this, I frequently find myself feeling so incredibly grateful I found this podcast. It has changed so much for me. I cannot begin to express my joy and gratitude at having repaired my relationship with my daughter! I never imagined we could be so close. I was going to a therapist for anxiety... but unschooling, with Pam’s guidance, is helping me so much more than any therapy has. My relationship with my spouse is also better! I just can’t imagine my worldwide has changed so much, and how many positive changes that has brought to my life. Thank you, Pam. Thank you.
