A funny thing happened this week. One of my children informed me that whenever he is scared, he just imagines one of the paintings he has stored in his mind through our years of picture study.

- 7 Assets and Liabilities of an INFP Homeschool Mom from Little Drops of Water
- I loved this, maybe especially because I’m raising an INFP daughter…
- Pedagogy of the Distracted from Commonweal Magazine
