WOW

I’m currently reading The Brave Learner and considering homeschooling so decided to checkout the podcast. I’m so glad Julie has started doing these shorter pep-talk episodes, they are so useful and inspiring. Every parent should listen to “Don’t Overthink it” regardless of your children’s educational background. I was in tears listening to her concise and wise insights. I will be tuning in more and more. Thank you, Julie!

Loving the new episodes

These last 15 minute episodes have helped me knock out some dishes. :) Love just listening to Julie sharing her thoughts and offering new options and ways of viewing things. I had to write a review after listening to this latest episode with the piano example. I’m having the exact scenario in my family with piano. These new ideas will help me and my kiddo. Thanks!!
