Morning time will change your life
I’ve listened to YMB and Pam off and on for years, and she literally changed my life 7 years ago when I was just starting to homeschool. I’m so thankful for her ministry and encouragement to homeschool moms of all ages! I highly recommend doing morning time!
Love the Folk Music episode
So nice to play folk songs and not only classical music. The soundtrack from Oh Brother Where Art Though? Has some great folk songs. In the Disney Frozen Shorts they have one with John Henry that my boys love. Have fun with banjo and fiddle music!😄
This podcast is amazing and has helped me so much as recovering perfectionist homeschooling mama! Pam gives so much great insight into so many aspects of life and focusing on homeschooling.
