I am so excited right now to be working with an amazing team to bring you a new site we’ve named Scholé Sisters. It’s a place for homeschooling mothers who want to cultivate the True, Good, and Beautiful in themselves and their children, and we have some amazing content and resources and discussion topics planned. Sarah Mackenzie, Brandy Vencel, Pam Barnhill, and I will be launching Scholé Sisters on July 21st!
But we had a series idea that I thought couldn’t wait, so we’re teaming up this week to tackle a homeschool stumbling block: scheduling. In the conversation Sarah recorded with Brandy for Teaching from Rest, Sarah said something about how her schedule was the way she brought her loaves and fishes for Jesus to use and multiply.
Does “teaching from rest” mean we have no schedule? Does it mean we have no plan? Does it mean we just “let go and let God”? No, I don’t think it does, and I was so relieved to hear Brandy and Sarah confirming my own experience: schedules can be servants. They don’t have to be slave-drivers that we serve and or alters on which we sacrifice our relationship with our children. We don’t have to choose between stressed-out on a schedule and loosey-goosey drifting. There is a third option. And this week Sarah, Brandy, and I will be taking on what it means to schedule from peace.
