About the Episode

Get your tissues and confetti ready for this heartfelt episode that celebrates the highs and lows of parenting! Delise and Ginny chat with Jill Philbrick, a seasoned homeschooling mom with over 15 years of experience. Jill shares her inspiring journey, the challenges she faced, and how her faith and community helped her persevere.

New to the Copper Lodge Library this year is English Epic Poetry, a collection with Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and selections from Canterbury Tales and Paradise Lost.

Build a family culture by reading these stories together and have meaningful conversations about wisdom and virtue. Even in the less overtly religious poems of Sir Gawain and Canterbury Tales, readers find Christian themes like courage, forgiveness, and right use of power.

Delise Germond

Delise lives with her husband Evan and their son Elliott (Leo) on a North Carolina mini-farm. She enjoys musical theater, thoughtful conversations, gardening, exploring new places, thrifting and antiquing, and, of course, playing with Leo and introducing him to new experiences (just look at that smile!). As cohost of Blessings and Motherhood, Delise’s prayer is that this show brings a breath of fresh air to moms in the thick of parenting and serves as a reminder of what matters most and who they are in Christ.

Ginny Tran

A proud mom of four littles, Ginny is the cohost of Blessings and Motherhood, a Classical Conversations Foundations Tutor, and the owner of a lovely bakery in Pinehurst, North Carolina. Her hobbies include baking (especially macarons), exercising, cooking dinner while listening to old-time classics, spending time at the lake with her kids and husband David, and enjoying the good vibes during the holiday season. Ginny loves everything about her local Classical Conversations community and is excited to share her stories, thoughts, and advice on the podcast!
