This episode is NOT the much-anticipated second Dorothy Sayers episode. Unfortunately we had some unforgivable technical problems and will have to re-record that.
This is, however, a fantastic conversation we had with Abby in which we jump off of Neil Postman’s thoughts on the need to not just take in information, but also take action, and apply this to the reading and thinking we do in our scholé time.
We’re glad you asked! Abby Wahl is not only a friend of ours, she’s also one of the hosts on the Sistership. Abby is a country living farmer/rancher, a loving wife and mom of five who homeschools … and reads whenever she can!

Sistership is now a hopping place – with an app! – for conversation and camaraderie and even book clubs, both online and local. Our goal with the new-and-improved
Sistership is to foster community not only with likeminded women online but also with your local ladies who might not always be so likeminded. We’re all better for iron-sharpening-iron, and classical homeschool moms need to seek out dialectic that builds virtue by pushing us toward clarity and commitment.
