One Mom’s Reaction

One mom's reaction to The Brave Learner

Here’s a fun glimpse inside the mind of a mom interacting with The Brave Learner:

Oh my goodness!!! What a wonderful book added to my collection of at-my-fingertips inspiration and encouragement!

I was out of town when my book arrived. I cracked it open as soon as I arrived home and 48 hours later I had devoured it :blush: will be going back through it more slowly soon. That’s just how I operate- lose myself for a couple days in a good book and then go back through the material slowly with a mind for studying and application (the first read is all about filling myself up and delight).

This time as I closed a book I devoured I didn’t feel guilty though. I felt like I had given my children a shining example of what it means to be immersed in learning for learning’s sake and finding delight for myself outside of my responsibilities as mother-teacher. Letting my 3 girls see me take care of myself isn’t something to feel guilty about anymore :tada:. I also pulled out the messy paint projects this morning that they have been wanting to do (for a shamefully long time). I had put them off because of the mess. I am delightedly folding laundry while they make a glorious (but contained) mess and I am not cringing about it in the least. Thank you so much!!!

So many of your ideas- both in this book and the Brave Writer program (just beginning to dip my toes in) are helping me to let go of all the hard rules I had laid on myself and consequently projected onto my kids. Instead I am figuring out what is right for US in THIS season and happily letting the things that just don’t fit go and trusting the journey. What a weight to let go of!!!

I really am on my own learning journey and it is fabulous!

The Brave Learner—Happy Book Birthday!

The Brave Learner

Today’s the day: The Brave Learner book birthday!

The book I wrote for you,The Brave Learner, is dropping in mailboxes and book stores all over the world (quite literally!). The excitement is palpable. I love seeing all the “your book has shipped” notices many of you are sharing on social media.

When I wrote this book, it was my hope that I could help you reimagine learning—how you can get a little more “video-game level enthusiasm” into the traditional school subjects, and how you could discover the school subjects hiding in a child’s interests.

In my book, you’ll find four kinds of information to help you:

  • An easy-to-understand philosophy of learning that you can adopt now
  • Stories from my family and families like yours putting those ideas into practice
  • Brain research to help you understand how natural learning occurs in children
  • Family-friendly practices to implement the 12 superpowers of learning

The Brave Learner is designed to support you in the task of education and parenting for every age group (5 – 18 years of age). It doesn’t matter whether you’re a text book homeschooler, an unschooler, or a parent of kids in a traditional school.

There’s something for every parent who cares about their children’s education.

The book is available through:

Brave Learner Book Club

It’s the Launch of the Brave Learner Book Club!

My book, THE BRAVE LEARNER, is about to publish on February 5. One of the reasons I am so looking forward to sharing it with you is that I can’t wait to TALK with you about it!

To that end, I have decided to offer a book club—a monthly webinar where I lead you in applying the principles and practices that I enumerate in the book. We’ll

  • share,
  • discuss,
  • problem-solve
  • AND turn philosophy into practice.

All of that goodness will take place in our coaching space: The Homeschool Alliance. Join us starting in February as we kick off the book club for THE BRAVE LEARNER!

In the book club you will:

  • consider how your home can provide an enchanted context for learning,
  • find the magic that’s already present,
  • and discover concrete ideas (also in the book!) that can amp the enchantment and lead to the love of learning we want for our kids.

THE BRAVE LEARNER explores many of the themes we love to talk about in the Homeschool Alliance: creating a healthy happy family and home life, while growing as awesome adults ourselves.

Pre-order THE BRAVE LEARNER now and you’ll be set for the first book club meeting!

Can’t wait to share it with you!
