    Pam, this was a wonderful and inspiring episode. Sheila Carroll seems to have a wealth of wisdom and knowledge. I can’t wait to tell more stories with my kids! You and she also mentioned two bonus handouts in the podcast, but I don’t see them anywhere on this page. Sorry if I’m being blind and missing them …! 🙂

    • Liezel says:

      Hi thanks for such an awesome episode! You ladies rock!!! can’t find Sheila’s two handouts! Help! Am I missing something!

  • Cyndi says:

    Very inspiring episode! I’m not a good story teller, however I’m excited to stretch my comfort zone! And we are doing story telling during summer and prayerfully it will continue. ?

    I was looking for the hand outs to get started, but I can’t find them. Please help!

    • Dawn Garrett says:

      They’re in with the Resources and Links 🙂

      • Kristi says:

        Hmmm, I still don’t see the two bonus handouts in that list. I DO see the two links to the discounted resources (with the morningbasket code), but not the two handouts …

        • LeAnn Taylor says:

          I don’t see it either! I can find it on episode 34 and older but not 35 or 36.

  • Becky Pedersen says:

    This was so enjoyable. This is a message all teachers need to hear. Kids learn through stories. If we want them to remember something, make it into a story. I’m going to use the story of the rice grains with a group of kids tomorrow! Thank you!

  • Heather Curry says:

    This was a great episode! So inspiring! Thank you for sharing.

  • Kimberly Locke says:

    I can’t see the handout links either. (I always sign up! You guys have the best resources!)

  • Alisha says:

    Hi! Loved this podcast. Where can I find the free Shelia Carroll was offering to your listeners?

    • Pam Barnhill says:

      We are working diligently to try and get those, but are not able to at the moment. We will put them up as soon as we have them!

  • Lauri muse says:

    She is fabulous!!
    Please have her back.
    Let’s have her teach us how she homeschooled..how to plan our days..how to teach well.!!

  • Jennifer says:

    Loved the podcast and found so much inspiration! Curious if you or Sheila know of any books dedicated to string stories? My kids LOVED The Mosquito string story and I’d love to have a collection of similar ones to draw from.

  • Katherine Horton says:

    I loved this podcast. It is very inspiring! The game she mentioned she does at her classes where one starts a story and they they switch story tellers is a game that is played in the novel Little Women. How cool is that!! I’m going to incorporate this in our Gathering(morning time).

  • Quinn says:

    Pam or who can help me.
    I have a 3.5 year old daughter and want to do some form of morning time. We will be sending her to preschool in a year. I want to teach her spiritual things and memorizing. Any recommendations on which podcast to listen to for the younger ones.
    Thank you for help where to start!
