Hey, homeschoolers!

I also can't wait to introduce you to my guest this week. She is Kathie Morrissey. Kathie is wife to Alan, mother of eight children, and homeschooling mom of 31 years. She and her husband have been married for 37 years and their kids are grown. They have 10 precious grandkids, one of whom Kathie helps care for in the mornings. Though Kathie's homeschooling days are behind her, she stays busy running The Character Corner, traveling to conferences, and sharing encouragement. When she's not working, you may find her playing the piano, reading a good book, or eating chocolate. I know you'll enjoy hearing what this veteran homeschool mom has to say about training character into your kids.
