About the Author
Diana Waring is the author of Beyond Survival, Reaping the Harvest and Diana Waring’s History Revealed world history curriculum.
She discovered years ago that “the key to education is relationship.” Beginning in the early ’80s, Diana homeschooled her children through high-school—the real life opportunities to learn how kids learn. Mentored by educators whose focus was honoring Him who created all learners, and with an international background (born in Germany, university degree in French, lifelong student of world history),
Diana cares about how people learn as well as what they learn. Audiences on four continents have enthusiastically received her energetic speaking style.
For those of you who would like to know more about Diana you can read a full author interview over at Crystal Starr and Ben and Me.
Until Friday my friends :)
