LDL Retreat Presentation Resources and Links

Here are the links and info from the LDL Retreat.  I'll add more posts in the future with additional resources.  Be sure to scroll down to other (older) posts.  There are lots of explanations for the slides in there (like Mission/Vision, manners, hilarious stories about my kiddos and their energetic messes).

These are resources that have helped my family.  I do not receive any compensation or perks for sharing these with you.  Just passing on what has worked for us, praying that you find what works for you and yours!

Thank you so much for sharing your insights, knowledge, and experiences with us. I felt inspired by so many of your comments.

P.S. During your presentation you mentioned a K-12 memorization packet... Is this list available to the public or where can I get a copy?

Thanks again for all your time and efforts.
