real encouragement for real homeschooling moms

april 3 podcast

This week I am continuing my series of podcasts on the philosophies and teachings of homeschooling pioneers, Raymond and Dorothy Moore. If you have not yet listened to the series of interviews with Dr. Moore’s assistant, Ellen Dana, I would encourage you to do so and they can all be accessed in the podcast archives.

Today I am welcoming my special guest, Kathie Kordenbrock, who is a homeschooling mom of three sons as well as the daughter of Raymond and Dorothy Moore. Join us today in part one of our discussion on what is called the Moore Formula as Kathie offers her sage advice on teaching pre-schoolers at home and preparing our children to become life-long learners.

And be sure to leave a comment on one of the podcast blog entries to participate in thatmom’s giveaway this month for the opportunity to win a lovely piece of limited edition artwork.

As I have enjoyed many of your podcasts in the past, I look forward to finding the time to listen to this one. But I want to be sure to get in on the print contest, so here I am now. 🙂

Yeah, Cindy! I am glad you went first. Kinda like sticking your knife into the new jar of peanut butter, isn’t it! 🙂 Or are my kids the only ones who argued over who got to do that?

I was so blessed to be able to welcome Katie to the podcasts and really enjoyed listening to her. It was actually quite a moving experience for me as the Moores’ teachings played such an important role in our deciding to homeschool our children.

Thanks for sharing this interview. I am always struck by the comment made by many experienced homeschoolers–“Enjoy your children”–I often let myself get so busy and major on the minor things and I forget this great advice! God grant me the grace to enjoy these boys you have blessed me with!
