Celebrating LifeSPARKS Series Anniversary with Free Ebooks May 17-21, 2024.

“The LifeSPARKS Lifelong Learning Series is a solid set for families looking for resources and new perspectives on helping to support a child’s learning. I had the opportunity to read through them and I also vouch that they are great for anyone who considers themselves a lifelong learner. The lessons, perspectives, and activities are helpful for anyone who works in managing and teaching others or feeling stuck in their own learning journeys.”

Last May, after a five year gestation incorporating new learning and research, I finally pressed publish for the books in the LifeSPARKS Lifelong Learning Series.

The next day, I left the country for a six-week trip to visit my son ,who was living in France at that time. It was also the first trip my husband and I had been able to take for many years due to the constraints of parental caregiving. It was space between the end of my father-in-law’s incredible journey through life, and us contemplating what we wanted next in our own journeys. Time to apply the LifeSPARKS lifelong learning strategy for Q – Question.

The trip flew by and so did the past year — full of exploring, reconnection, many hikes, plenty of mistakes and frustrations, and all sorts of learning, unlearning, relearning, and all the feels. I’m especially feeling grateful for the support I had to write and publish these books. I want to share that by offering two of the LifeSPARKS books for free from May 17-21.

The LifeSPARKS ABC’s for Lifelong Learning is a very short and accessible picture book format with original color illustrations paired with a poem or reflection for each A-Z lifelong learning strategy.

Learn More, Worry Less, Love Learning: Tried and Test Strategies for Self-Directed, Heart-Centered, Connected Learning builds those same A-Z strategies into chapters that are similar to mini-workshops with exercises and challenges to apply each strategy in your life.

I used these strategies while parenting, teaching, homeschooling, and caregiving. I’m still using them as I navigate the empty nest and heading into retirement. Thank goodness we can still keep learning!

I hope you’ll grab your copies and share your ideas and what you are excited about learning. Below is what a busy mom, community volunteer and journalist had to say about the books:
