YMB #34 A More Organic Morning Time: A Conversation with Hayley Beck


Sometimes as much as we want to create an ideal Morning Time habit in our home, something stands in our way. That doesn’t mean we have to give up.

Our guest today, Hayley Beck, found that by putting aside the idea of an ideal Morning Time she was able to create something that works very well for her family. Hear all about how it works for them in this episode.

    This is excellent! Linking from The Reading Mother . . .

  • Valerie says:

    I’ve been struggling with trying to do to much during morning time. I love all the resources mentioned in every episode and I want to do them all and then find myself overwhelmed and doing nothing. Do you have any advice for simplifying​ and streamlining morning time ?

    • Pam Barnhill says:

      Valerie — Pick one thing and start there. Do that for a while and then add another. Continue to slowly add subjects until you find yourself at a comfortable level of activity. But first — start with one thing. It will help with the overwhelm.

    Oh my goodness, thank you Pam and Hayley for this great podcast! A light just turned on for me as Hayley was explaining the way she weaves Morning Time into her homeschool days. I am going to give it a try tomorrow and just see if we can keep my little ones engaged in our MT. 🙂

  • Tracy Ojeda says:

    I just listened to this, the wheels are turning as I look to next year. Even though I do not have a bunch of little ones(anymore) I do have some younger ones and I think a split morning time schedule may be a good thing for us!
