A Mother's Account of Learning to Teach Her Children At Home
I am a SAHM and teacher of six beautiful daughters. I decided to create this blog because I needed somewhere to write down what I was and am going through as I learn about the wide world of homeschooling. I figured why not share that process, in case there was anyone that found it as overwhelming as I did! I hope you enjoy your stay and perhaps find something helpful in your own journey!

William Shakespeare, Hamlet, act 1, scene 5, lines 167–68. - Be Not Afraid

Each reference has two links.  One links to the literary source on Amazon, and the other links to the talk the reference was taken from. 
I decided to start making a list of literary references each General Conference because I know many home educators that want to read these books.
