Goethe once said, "Out of moderation a pure happiness springs." Without moderation, we cannot be free and we cannot be happy, but how do we acquire the virtue in the first place? And how do we instill it in our kids? Join us at Founders Classical Academy of Leander on February 27th at 7:00 PM as Dr. Michael Foley (Ph.D., Boston College) discusses the quest for moderation and the challenges we often face along the way.
