Episode 23: A Tribute to my Dad
Walter Lankester Harders (April 16, 1942 - April 1, 2022) was the greatest man that I have ever known this side of Heaven. He was my dad, my coach, my cheerleader, my financial advisor, my insurance agent, my bedtime storyteller, my driving teacher, my advocate, my #1 fan, my first love, my last dance, my friend. And more important than any of those titles, he was my brother in Christ. He went home on April 1st, 2022 after a 12-year battle with dementia and just one day after my daughter, Sophia's, 8th birthday. I am grateful that I was able to be with him in Georgia for his last week of life on earth, and I cannot wait to see him again in Heaven. I dedicate this episode to him and to the most important lesson that he ever taught me: the Gospel of God's Amazing Grace!  Join me for today's episode of the Peaceful Worldschooling Podcast where I share one of my favorite memories with my dad and the introduction of my first book, Gospel-Based Parenting (now available for purchase here).

In today's episode, Angela Harders is interviewing health coach and military wife, Leslie Urbas. Leslie works from her home office in the Sunshine State and lives out her highest purpose every day. She combines her grounded sense of family values as a military wife and inspiring mom of two (born 2018 and 2020 respectively) with her expertise and natural entrepreneurial flair.  Leslie doesn't meet her life halfway in any realm, personally or professionally... A great example of the light-hearted yet high-impact commitment she shares with her clients is when she married the man of her dreams in 2017 during Hurricane Irma!

Episode 14: Raising Entrepreneurs with Tara Bushaw
Tara Bushaw is a married mom of 8 from Minnesota who has been homeschooling for 8 years. Currently, she has five kids still at home, and they take a mixed approach to homeschooling with some guided curriculum mixed with unschooling. Her family thrives on the flexibility that homeschooling provides and has allowed her to guide her kids through some non-typical situations. Something unique about her journey has been that they have incorporated real-life experiences and entrepreneurial skills in their homeschooling journey. Tara supported and encouraged her (at the time) 15-year-old son to buy a house next to hers, where he did the budgeting, bill-paying, remodeling, etc. He worked to pay for it in his own lawn-mowing business, and then worked side-by-side with the owner of a restaurant (during typical school hours) where he helped her prep, plan, cook, and bake for the restaurant and catering business. He then proceeded to buy his very own restaurant at the age of 18, a food truck, and a second location at the age of 19 and is pursuing his third location at the age of 20. In this episode, Tara and Angela also share some of the many concerns that they have about the toxic public school system, and how raising entrepreneurs is a way to flip the script and "get rid of the box." 2:29 - Can you share a little about you, your family, and your story? 3:30 - What inspired you to consider homeschooling? 6:11 - What kinds of things have you observed about public schools and children's mental health? 14:40 - Do you consider yourself to be an unschooling family? 18:00 - How old was your son when he bought his first home? 18:40 - Why do you think that unschool helps to cultivate entrepreneurs? 20:30 - What does a typical day look like for you with 8 children at home? 23:44 - Is your 11-year-old daughter considering a career in web design or is it more of a hobby? 32:48 - How long does it take you to do formal learning in the evenings? 47:20 - Do you have any concerns about unschooling? 52:07 - How have you been unschooling yourself? 53:57 - Is there anything that you wish that you had done differently? 55:40 - What advice would you have for someone who is considering homeschooling or unschooling? 59:57 - What kind of services do you provide in your business? 1:03:27 - How can people connect with you? ***CONNECT WITH TARA*** Facebook: Tara Bushaw Instagram: @tarabushaw ***CONNECT WITH ANGELA*** www.peacefulworldschoolers.com Facebook: www.facebook.com/PeacefulWorldschoolers Instagram: @PeacefulWorldschooler YouTube: www.youtube.com/c/PeacefulWorldschoolers Twitter: @ajharders ***RECOMMENDED RESOURCES*** The Work From Home Revolution Facebook Group: www.facebook.com/groups/thewfhrevolution BOOK: Tales of a Toxic Teacher: Exposing the Cycles of Abuse Within Our Schools ***DONATE TO SUPPORT ANGELA*** CashApp: $ajharders Venmo: @Angela-Harders www.givesendgo.com/FaithOverFear ***SHARE THE PODCAST*** Anchor Spotify: https://anchor.fm/peaceful-worldschoolers Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/peaceful-worldschoolers/id1588667565 Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy82ZGRjMTM0OC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw ***BE A GUEST ON THE PODCAST*** If you would like to be a guest on the Peaceful Worldschooling Podcast, sign up here: https://calendly.com/peacefulworldschooler/peaceful-worldschooler-podcast?month=2022-01 I'm looking forward to connecting with you and having a conversation that can change the world!
