The Power of a Mother’s Words

Yesterday morning, a discreet email came addressed to my inbox. A young gentleman who was homeschooled along with his four sisters has recently completed a short film called “What She Taught Me”.

I found his film encouraging and heartfelt. It was a subtle reminder of the importance of what we do.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing, Cristina. This message was made as a way to say thank you for the effort you all pour into our lives. If anyone else wants to share it, please feel free. I just hope that it can bless some people as much as my mother’s work blessed me.


  2. Reblogged this on At The Well and commented:
    I’ve never reblogged before but his broke my heart and encouraged me at the same time. I love reading to my children and will likely read an extra story with them today. Personally, as I watched this I remembered cuddling with my grandma as she read Scripture to me and cried my heart out…


  3. Too beautiful for words. So heartfelt and I have tears pouring down my face. I’ve never reblogged, but I will certainly share this with others. Thank you, very much for bringing this forth. I’m just blown away.


  4. What a great share! It’s the air these days: Reading, why it really does matter. The power of stories, of imagination, of learning, of parents and child sitting close over and over again. So simple, yet profound, and so very needed in a child’s life. I am reading John Trelease’s book The Read Aloud Handbook. I have the newly updated 7th edition, and its a great classic. Written over 30 years ago his message about American education has almost become prophetic in nature.


  5. Thank you for reading my blog! I found this video to be very inspiring, I am dealing with a reluctant reader so I keep reading to him as often as I can. Here lately, he will even sit and read to me! Thank you for sharing this!
