Living Books with Michelle Howard Founder of the Living Learning Library
Tune into our latest podcast interview with Michelle Howard, the founder of the Living Learning Library, located right here in Jupiter, Florida. If you are making careful decisions about your kids' education, please consider the reading materials so equally crucial to the development of their hearts and minds. They should be truly rich in content and inspired in their view of the child as a learner. Their books should be living! Imagine a book so life-filled that it "captures attention, secures interest," and "arouses something noble in the heart of the child, without any effort on the part of the teacher or the taught." Seeing is believing--not just the library, but also the surprising impact of these books in engaging your students in learning and virtue. Sound like what you want your kids to read? Please visit https://www.livinglearninglibraries.org for a preview of the Living Learning Library.  https://www.livinglearninglibraries.org https://localhomeschoolers.com

Family, Freedom and Faith With Melissa Martz For Congress CD 18
Get encouraged and inspired as we discusses how Melissa Martz is fighting for our families and freedoms in Palm Beach County and hear how we can support her campaign for Florida's Congressional District 18. Martz is a homeschooling mother and homesteader with a love for our earth and the "fearfully and wonderfully made" human beings that inhabit it. Melissa Martz has a long list of passions and accolades but at the center of nearly all of them is one thing – people. Martz is a Registered Patent Attorney with a B.S. in Pre-med/Biology and minors in Chemistry and Religion. Martz was raised in both the Jewish and Christian faiths and attended an Assemblies of God undergraduate college. Out of college, Martz briefly worked for the public school system as a high school biology teacher.  Martz has always been a constitutionalist and government minimalist. However,  it has been the recent display of outright government tyranny, in this last year, that has ignited her to fight on behalf of her fellow Americans, to protect our freedoms at all costs. Martz was the first of four attorneys to stand up and sue Palm Beach County against their unconstitutional mask mandate. Martz rejects the concept of "anti-masker" and embraces the idea of "pro-freedom", choice and medical autonomy.  https://localhomeschoolers.com https://melissamartz.com https://www.facebook.com/MelissaMartzForCongress/?ref=py_c https://palmbeachcountyteaparty.org/2021/04/brian-mast-and-rick-roth-on-june-7th/
