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) who 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 (scholé) and her struggle to bring restful learning to her children.
I have been homeschooling for nineteen years, and I have read a lot of homeschool how-to books. This information wasn't really new to me, but it was a way to re-focus after all these years. So, it definitely resonates with seasoned homeschoolers, especially if you have lost your joy or are feeling burnt out. I would say it is a must-read for younger moms.
Sarah is sweet and her family is darling. You will feel like you are chatting with her over a cup of tea!
