HSP 39 Diane Lockman: Focus on the Skills They Need


Ever feel like what you do doesn’t matter? Do you ever wonder if the sacrifice you made to stay home and teach your children is in vain? Join us for this episode of Homeschool Snapshots Podcast as Diane Lockman encourages us with what really matters.

Diane reminds us to let go of subjects and give our children the skills now to learn the content they need for their callings later. She reminds us that the most important thing we can do is teach our children, how to read, write, think, and speak well, equipping them to seek their passions and find their place in the world.

But most of all, Diane helps us to see that when moms are equipped through prayer and education then the whole family benefits.

Just a quick note on the sound quality of this episode; it isn’t great. We do apologize for the fuzzy sounds and want you to know that this is not the norm. It only affects Pam’s side of the interview so we decided to run it anyway because Diane is just wonderful!
