She's a hoot! She writes with wit and humor, grace and honesty, faith and substance. If I ever need a laugh, in comes Margaret. If I need encouragement, in pops Margaret. Spiritual growth? Yup, there's Margaret. I'll admit it, I eagerly await for Minnesota Mom to come up in my Google Reader. She's a faithful friend, always there when you need her.
Well, image my sheer delight when I stumbled upon something last week. As I was looking for the latest updates on the Minnesota Catholic Home Education Conference, I grinned as I read Margaret's name. With few details at that point, I sent Miss Margaret an email telling her that I knew her little 'secret' and could not wait to hear her speak. She replied, sharing how truly honored she was to have been invited. And then she even gave me a sneak peek at her two talks. You wanna hear them?
The first: "Grace for the Baking: A Humerous Look at How to Turn Those Daily To-Dos Into Teaching Moments"
The second: "Keeping Your Eyes on Your Own Work: Other Homeschoolers do it Differently. It's okay to be okay with that and by the grace of God, you can"
Don't they sound wonderful? I know that with all of her knowledge she's got to share and her humor sprinkled in there, Margaret's going to have us feeling full and satisfied after she speaks.
There are a number of superb speakers on tap for that Saturday in May and I cannot wait to listen and be refreshed and rejuvenated in our Catholic homeschooling adventure.
Just as I wait for her in Reader, I'll be waiting patiently IRL to see her at the end of May, she is Margaret In Minnesota after all.
