The Liberty Hippie is joined by homeschooling father, William Haun. William isn't your ordinary homeschooling dad though, he and his family are missionaries in Ghana, and while homeschooling wasn't originally in their plan, as life would move it seemed that it would be in their families best interest to take on homeschooling. We discussed how that decision came about, and what that looks like for them. We also talked about what their education plan is like while they are stateside for the next year.

Homesteads and Homeschools

This week I talked to Linnea Gabbard, a vet tech from Arkansas who to live off grid with her vetrinarian husband. Together they've built up their personal stores and derive essentially all their electricity from solar arrays. As Linnea said, once you get your personal life cleaned up, you move onto other aspects of your life, and for her, that means greening up their vet clinic. They are constantly on the lookout to make their practice greener, and have started building a new clinic that will run on solar.

Join the Liberty Hippie and James Davis as they enter into the world of parenting to talk about...peaceful parenting! For some, peaceful parenting can be a bit exotic, for others, it's just a form of laziness, and for those that practice it, it can become the facilliator of a beautiful relationship between parents and children, while setting those children up for great success in the future. Take a listen and see how peaceful parenting can benefit not just your children, but you.

Today's guest is Texas Joe from the Knitting Insurgency Circle. While we could have talked about his homestead for quite sometime, today we decided to talk about firearms.
