I have several issues to address quickly today. First, if you have been missing my posts for the last two months, I’m so sorry! In late March I sent out a survey so that I could segment my subscriber list. This means that I am trying to notify people about my posts according to their interests. I have 3 categories of posts now: Homeschooling and Parenting; Spirituality for Adults; and Books, Videos, and Events. Only a third of my subscribers completed the survey. Those who didn’t were supposed to continue receiving everything. However, I’ve learned from a few readers that instead they’ve been receiving nothing.
I think I’ve fixed the problem. So sorry if you’ve been missing my posts when you wanted to receive them!
If you wish to limit the emails you receive to one category, you can update your preferences by using the link at the bottom of your emails from me, or the signup box on my blog’s sidebar.
A successful homeschool conference
Welcome to all the new subscribers from the Minnesota Catholic Home Education Conference and Curriculum Fair!
I gave two workshops at the conference: Homeschooling Help from St. Therese and Working with Your Child’s Temperament. Both went very well. After the second, I had more questions that there was time for. If you missed the talks and would like to hear them, you can order CDs soon. I am just waiting for a link to the company who records them.
Thank you for your prayers for this event. I met a few of my subscribers in person. I also connected with other writers. I talked with many parents who are striving to raise godly children. I even sold some books! It was great fun.
A Spiritual Growth Plan for Your Choleric Child
If you have been missing my emails, you probably missed the announcement about my second book, which came out on May 15. A Spiritual Growth Plan for Your Choleric Child is available in paperback and as an ebook. You can find all my books and their details on my Book Table page.
If you have friends or family who could benefit from this book, please pass the word onto them. And if you have a homeschool or parenting blog, I’d be happy to send you a review copy. Just email me at crossini4774 at comcast dot net.
I have just started working on the second book in the series, on the phlegmatic child. But that brings me to my next point.
I have been going strong with my writing since long before I published Trusting God with St. Therese. My husband has asked me to take the month of June off from working on any books. Our home needs some attention!
I decided to also take a break from my weekly blogging here. That will give me time to write a few columns for SpiritualDirection.com and focus on getting the word out about the choleric child book. And do some laundry. (I’m phlegmatic, remember?)
My next post here after today will be on July 7.
What can you do in the meantime? Here are some ideas:
- Read the posts you missed getting, or that you haven’t had time to read
- Start at the beginning of my series on Interior Castle and read them through to the fifth mansions
- Visit my new Homeschool and Parenting page
- Read my original posts on trust that were the start of my first book
- Read one of my books!
- Take a break from the internet and get some fresh air and exercise
Don’t worry, I have lots of ideas for writing when I come back! Please don’t go away permanently. We’ll reconnect soon.
