— Welcome —

 

Grab a your favorite beverage, pull up a chair, and make yourself comfortable. My name is Stephanie. I’m mom to two, mostly grown, always homeschooled, sons. Lover of YA literature. History geek. ENFP. Enneagram Type 9. Photography buff.

I don’t have a brand nor am I trying to develop one. I started this blog over 10 years ago as a place to document our homeschool journey. Now as I find myself in a period of transition, I find myself wondering where I want my life (and this blog!) to go next. It’s as simple as that.

— The Desire to Understand
(and to be Understood) —

 

In looking for an underlying theme to my writing (and to my life), I keep coming back to the idea of seeking understanding. I believe that it is a desire to understand, both ourselves and others, which is the key to making this world a better place.

It is as simple as this—if we have a desire to understand, we can get curious rather than place blame. This attitude can transform our most personal relationship with ourself, our relationship with our children and family members, and help us make better sense of the larger world in which we live.
