I’m so excited to be writing this first blog post, sharing this brand new site with you for the first time! I hope you’ll find Learning Resource Directory to be extremely helpful and informative, now and as time goes on.
Since today is launch day, I thought we could start off with a fun launch party. Just because I want to thank you for all the support you’ve shown over the time my team and I were building this. And because you’re just plain wonderful.
Before we get into the giveaway, I’d like to tell you what to expect from this blog.
I’m all about living purposefully. To me, living purposefully means that we will:
- Read books that help us attain our goals or motivate or encourage us in some way.
- Choose the style of learning that fits our individual needs—whether the right program, book, podcast, or something else.
- Use the right tools to get us from “A” to “B” as efficiently as possible.
- Set intentional goals—so we can live more purposeful lives, and do what really matters.
I want this blog to be just as much of a resource for you as the rest of the site. I also hope I can encourage you, and help you live even more purposefully than you are already.
There are a variety of things I will be talking about. In no particular order, here are a few of those things:
- Goal setting
- Free Tools (ones that I use often that help me be more productive)
- Family living
- Teaching children and siblings
- Writing (and all things related to the subject)
- Teenagers in highschool
- Beyond highschool
- My homeschool experiences
- Time management
I don’t think I could capture everything I’d love to share with you in just one list. I’m hoping you can join me in the ride of discovering what living purposefully really means, and we can learn together. I’d love to be an encouragement and help to you if I can. Don’t hesitate to send questions, comments, or just a “hello!” to me via the contact page or comment box.
Now that the serious business is out of the way, let’s have a party!
Since Learning Resource Directory is all about books, I want to give you a chance to read a new book—or enjoy an old favorite, however that may be. Today, I’m giving away two different books—both old favorites of mine.
The first? God King. One of you will receive a paperback copy of this fascinating, inspiring story.
The second? An older classic—In Grandma’s Attic. Except there’s a slight twist . . . I’d like to give you the whole Grandma’s Attic Treasury! This paperback collection includes the first four books in the series, all ones I’ve read and loved.
There will be two winners—one family will get God King, the other will get Grandma’s Attic Treasury.
To enter, please use the Rafflecopter form below. (Giveaway is open to all countries that Book Depository ships to.) Giveaway runs from now through Wednesday morning (NZST).
Feel free to take a self-guided tour around Learning Resource Directory, and if you have any thoughts about it don’t hesitate to share—I love hearing from you. 🙂
As soon as the giveaway is over, expect my first “regular” post. I’m hoping to post 2 – 3 times per week, so you can stay inspired to keep on working, but not get overwhelmed either.
Keep up the good work!
Update: The giveaway is now over! Join me in congratulating Jessica S and Clare! Congratulations, girls! Jessica, you have won God King, and Clare, you will be receiving the Grandma’s Attic Treasury. I’ll be in touch with both of you shortly.
