I am more excited about today than I have been in a long, long time. I managed to put together the first Training Minds Podcast, and I suspect you’re going to love it.
In April I responded to the Doug Phillips sex scandal by publicly decrying that Patriarchy Has Got to Go. My little tweet in the wilderness made an impact, but homeschool leader and co-founder of HSLDA Michael Farris dropped a bombshell last week.
I made this video to explain two important inquiries I get often about the sourcebooks I put out: (1) what’s the big deal this year? and (2) what are the differences between the five sourcebooks?
The kinds of testimonies at altar calls often involve booze, car accidents and wild partying. Mine qualifies, but I still hesitate to share it openly. My reasons will probably surprise you.
I’ll be honest: I have my competitors. There are some decent sourcebook materials on the market and plenty of teaching material in the public school arena, but you should stick with Monument Publishing. I have 10 reasons why.
Following Michael Hyatt’s lead, I guess you can say I have a significant platform. I’m mother of sixteen children. There’s “wow” for you. Needless to say, I get asked to speak for all sorts of occasions—women’s groups, conventions, and churches. I have a unique message on “Love in the House” that I enjoy sharing.
“Suck it up,” I would have probably said a decade ago. Then I went through a few spats of depression, the kinds not so easily shrugged. My empathy for those who suffer with it changed.
This post is a virtual high-five to nearly 50 writers and editors to this year’s edition of Monument Publishing sourcebooks. These young people (and a few old fogies like me) dedicated much of their summers to make sure homeschool speakers and debaters are totally prepared for the upcoming tournament season.
I just finished editing and producing the Blue Disk, a DVD of Vance Trefethen’s debate camp presentation covering the 2014 NCFCA team-policy debate resolution on the Middle East. (Stoa people, your edition is being edited now.)
