Homeschooling Moms with Children who Have Dyslexia Dessert

From Maggi Beardsley:  I am hosting a dessert in July with homeschooling moms who have a child with dyslexia.  Come meet other moms, share what works for you and ask questions about the next step in your journey.

We are not bringing in an expert in the topic but sharing among ourselves and thinking about beginning a support network.  Do you have a child who doesn't have dyslexia but want to come any way?

Great!  Homeschooling moms are full of wisdom and love to share.

We have not set a date as of yet  but are looking at the second week in July perhaps, in the evening.

Please email Maggi Beardsley at

Rosie and Scamper Free eBook

FREE e-book:

Rosie and Scamper is the first book in the Sonrise Stable series, a collection of heartwarming stories about an extended homeschooling family as they live, learn, and love together. Mixing adventure, life lessons, and realistic horse experiences, the series is a must for readers who enjoy family values, Christian faith, and, of course, horses!
While learning to ride at Sonrise Stable, eight-year-old Rosie dreams of the horse shows she will win with her pony, Jet. Two years later, nothing is exactly the way Rosie planned it-she's riding a new pony, Scamper, and learning that life isn't always easy. But it's as Rosie reaches out to the new girl next door that she truly begins to see that God works all things together for good in our lives.
