Show Notes

"I don’t think she’d take to email or messenger. I believe she would hold fast to writing. She was a woman who worked with her hands, pulling milk from her cows each day, hoeing her garden, cooking for farm hands…every single day. She’d want to feel that pen and paper because it’s familiar, like the dirt, the bread dough, material and thread, paint and old photos, and the way she could make beautiful things from all of it, like magic."

Letter writing is a dying art, particularly among those born in the 21st century. Amy talks about her great-grandmother's lessons on letter writing (before email) and how she wants to continue that tradition with her daughter. Brittany offers a tip for getting kids off screens, particularly as the weather warms. And if you're looking for a terrific app with free features that can help pull you through the most stressful of days, we've got a suggestion for you.
