My Love of Children and the Outdoors

Mercy’s guest today is her sister, Mary Russell, M.Ed. & owner of Journeys Out Yonder, a nature-based education early childhood education program in Boulder, CO. As she tells the story of the evolution of her life’s passion into a purposeful joyful career, we explore what she learned from her students, in the public education system and outdoors. Embedded in her story is her growth in becoming a confident independent woman secure in herself and nurtured by the love of her students and their families. She shares her philosophy of nurturing children to follow their natural curiosity while becoming confident as learners and explorers. Get OUTSIDE and PLAY! Website:
