I very much enjoyed a few talks by Diana Waring, who writes history curriculum which includes the curriculum What in the World's Going on Here? We have many of her history CDs. Years ago Holly was inspired by her messages and that's one of the reasons she chose history as her major. I was happy to share this with Mrs. Waring and she said that really encouraged her to hear.
I am always so encouraged by these wonderfully, gifted speakers. It however, was neat to let them know how much they have meant to us over the years, even if it is only through their media. But to be able to tell them in person how much we appreciate them was really fun for me. And They appreciated hearing that. So if you get to go hear one of your favorite speakers in person, let them know how much you have been encouraged by them. They are human like us and enjoy being encouraged as well.
