Friday Talks with Donna

Now you can listen to the series of free talks Donna recorded on her facebook group, Christopherus Homeschooling Families without having to join facebook or search for them there! Each talk is about 20 minutes long – please remember that the point of FB talks is their informality and spontaneity -and that the audio quality is quite rough due to use of a laptop’s camera/mic which is not very clear!
