Another Giveaway Next Week!

Hey Everybody,

If you live in the Middle Tennessee / Southern Kentucky area, be watching Tennessee Mornings on Wednesday, June 17, at 8:15 am. I'll be on talking about ways to encourage your budding young entrepreneur with some business ideas this summer! In conjunction with my appearance on the show, I'll be offering you the chance to win a copy of the audio version of my book, Season of Change: Parenting Your Middle Schooler with Passion and Purpose. Also, next week, be checking back here for ideas on taking your child from "painfully bored" to "purposefully busy!"


People always ask me if mine is the voice they will hear when they listen to the audio version of Season. The short answer is no, it's not me, but the explanation is this: I really considered doing the audio version. I absolutely LOVE to read aloud! Reading aloud to my kids is on my top ten list of reasons to consider homeschooling! Oh, how I love long afternoons spent reading to my kids! I do voices and everything, the whole nine yards! When I read, we always have a Southerner ('course), and I do a pretty good John Wayne, so he usually shows up too! LOL! Tom Sawyer was probably my toughest one so far--everybody started sounding the same, and my Injun Joe was so scary it made me nervous! So much fun! I just love words, y'all, and I love crafting, reading, and devouring a good sentence! But it came down to a time factor, and I just did not have the time to go into a studio and read the manuscript for tape. Sooooo--a really great gal with no accent reads Season of Change to you, and she does a great job, even without any y'all's. :) So stay tuned for that giveaway--a $29.95 value! More details will come next week!

I loved this, as I never think of myself as a gal with an accent, until I leave the South, then I realize I do. (and yes, I say y'all too).

I sent you an email last night (Sat), so be on the lookout for it.
