This newsletter is designed to offer you insights, inspiration, and support to weather the storm of this moment. We hope to contribute to your family life and nourish the wonder, innocence, and imagination of your young children. Allow us to relieve of you of any burden you might be carrying in thinking that you must now home "school" your little ones. The Homefolk newsletter is designed to offer you support in a rhythm when so many of the daily rhythms that typically anchored us have fallen away.
Please read this newsletter (or don't), not with an eye toward becoming the perfect parent (as if such a thing could ever exist), nor with the goal of putting into practice everything we offer you. Instead, take from it that which immediately draws you in, that which your heart says "yes" to. If you find yourself reading something and thinking "I should really do that," with a sense of resignation, then it is probably not the time to try. Tuck it away, knowing you can come back to it for future reference or inspiration. Wait for a time when your energy truly is present and your heart can truly say, "yes."
Being the parent of young children, in the best of times, can take tremendous energy, and leave us feeling tired much of the time. In times like these, it is vital we protect, conserve, and nourish our energy. Please look towards these offerings for that which will conserve your energy and improve your quality of life. Please take from these offerings only what supports your family to be healthier, happier, more rhythmic, and grounded.
We are here for you. We are in this together.
