I love being around inspiring people.
And that's basically what reading biographies is! I was a history major in college (So fun! But not much you can do with a bachelor's degree...) and it has been vital to understanding current events, cause and effect, as well as finding and predicting patterns in human behavior.
Here are some of my all-time favorite biographies. These people now feel like dear friends and I have learned SO MUCH from them! I find myself wanting to emulate them, but also looking at my own motivations, my own weaknesses, and looking at a bigger picture of the human story.
As a Sonlight.com ambassador, I am excited to share some of their products in this post.

I've got to tell you that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) does NOT come naturally to me. I'm a history/literature kind of a person, and it still boggles my mind that I am a robotics coach. (What we do for our kids-seriously!)
If you are like me, and you want to bring more STEM into your family culture or afterschooling, I've got a ton of great ideas for you that have really worked well for my family- and that don't require me to be a science whiz!

Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
