I love being a mentor to new homeschool moms and to younger women in general. It is one of the good things about "getting older. I led a mentor group of 8 new homeschool moms this fall, and really enjoyed getting to know them and sharing information from the mentor manual, Home Education 101, by Vicki Bentley, as well as from my nearly 20 years of experience as a home educator.
It dawned on me that I could share those things here on my blog as well.
