Mother Culture is a term coined by Karen Andreola in keeping with Charlotte Mason's teaching:
"if mothers could learn to do for themselves, what they do for their children . . . we would have happier households.
Let the mother go out to play!
If she would only have the courage to let everything go when life becomes too tense, and just take a day, or half a day, out in the fields, or with a favourite book, or in a picture gallery looking long and well at just two or three pictures, or in bed, without the children, life would go on far more happily for both children and parents."
As mothers, we pour all we have into our families. If we want to bring truth, goodness and beauty to our homes, we must be filling our hearts, minds and souls with the same. We hope to provide opportunities to do just that - we'd love to have you join us!
Teaching from Rest
Those who have made the decision to homeschool their children have done so out of great love for their children and a desire to provide them an excellent education in the context of a warm, enriching home. Yet so many parents (mainly mothers) have taken up this challenge find the enterprise often full of stress, worry, and anxiety. In this practical, faith-based, and inspirational book, Sarah Mackenzie addresses these questions directly, appealing to her own study of restful learning (schole) and her struggle to bring restful learning to her children.
