Simply Convivial

classical home education for life

Short and meaty focus sessions for the homeschool mom

The Simply Convivial Audio Blog

Helping keep our eyes on the big picture, our heads in the game, and our hands in the mess.

In my opinion, the best way to get motivated to do those routine chores or exercises is to “reframe” that time as learning time, entertainment time, or motivational pep talk time – and I do that by listening to great audio!

I hope you will enjoy these blog posts read aloud – with an extra bonus “sanity saver” thrown in for fun. They’re little pick-me-ups to make laundry, dinner prep, or a morning walk a little less mundane.

“Your writing style is awesome – so clear and concise, yet engaging. I’d tried a few audio things, but found them much harder to listen to. But your short Simply Convivial audioblogs are awesome – the same clarity, conciseness, and ability to draw someone right into your point. It’s a short dose of inspiration and “do-not-grow-weary” for the homemaker/homeschooler. Thanks for sharing your insights!” –Jaimee, homeschool mom
