I would like to take the time today to recommend a CD that has just been released by Catholic recording artist, and friend of mine, Simonetta. We have all waited anxiously for the past few years for her to finally get around to producing some new music. I mean really, between homeschooling, being a mother to 5 and then adopting another child, writing, choreographing and producing one outstanding production after another, you would think she would have time to write and record a new CD:) Well, I got to listen to my free copy today and it was worth the wait!
I would highly encourage you to go to the St. Philomena Foundation and order your own free copy. While you are there, feel free to check out the information about donating to the St. Philomena Foundation so that they can continue to produce and distribute more free music.
If you are interested in more of what Simonetta does, check out the link to The Little Flowers Catholic Dance and Theatre Troupe. Their upcoming performace will be held on March 15th and 18th and will be The Seven Last Words of Christ. It will include the original music by Theodore Dubois sung by the Most Blessed Sacrament Choir and the Passion Choir. The choirs will be accompanied by professional musicians and, for your visual pleasure, a silent portrayal of the passion of Christ will be performed by The Little Flower Catholic Dance and Theatre Troupe, choreographed by Simonetta.
So what does this have to do with homeschooling with joy? Well, listening to Simonetta's music will make you feel peaceful and close to God so that, come Monday, you will greet your students with a heart full of joy! Really, you will! Order your copy and see for yourself!
