St Johnsbury, VT
A small Charlotte Mason community, modeled after the True, Good, and Beautiful model that Nancy Kelly describes on Sage Parnassus. The children that attend this group are in Forms 1 through Form 3. Moms are required to be involved and guide discussions and explorations. Shakespeare, Plutarch, scouting and music are the subjects included so far, with hopes to build into more.
"Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life." ~ Charlotte Mason
With acknowledgment of this, Life-giving Motherhood was born: a worldwide, online community of sisters in Christ, growing in the philosophy and method of Charlotte Mason in our homes and local churches. Each month is packed with live workshops, habit-formation challenges, mother culture, and a book club reading Miss Mason's volumes.
"We are a community of Gospel-reliant moms, intent on being disciples and disciplers of Christ, who have united to answer the call of raising up the next generation in accordance with God's Word, by cultivating the spiritual disciplines lived out by Christ, and by replacing unproductive habits with life-giving, productivity-boosting habits, which enable us to hone our ability to be watchful, praying gatekeepers of our homes, and ultimately, hear our King say when He returns, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
