This workshop discusses the various seasons of a woman’s life, her responsibilities in each season, how she can prepare for the changes, and how to enjoy the “season of comfort” or the “sweater years” as they come. Included in this topic is the discussion of caring for elderly parents, nurturing your marriage as you prepare for an empty nest, and preparing for the emotional changes particular to women. I believe these are some of the most crucial topics facing homeschooling moms as they face the end of their homeschooling careers.
