We are a group of parents who meet monthly at Panera in Selinsgrove, PA to read and discuss Charlotte Mason's volumes. New members are always welcome.
We are a CM community located in Searcy, AR. We are a 501c3 and have volunteer and independent contract teachers teaching CM subjects. Classes and schedule vary with each term. We meet about 16-20 weeks per year once, twice, or three times per week. We host 2 nature hikes per month in Fall and Spring. Our signature classes that we have most every term are: Shakespeare, Ballet, Folk Dancing, and Liaterature. Our aim is to create the best possible atmosphere for kids to learn and for “Cottage” day to be every kid’s favorite day of the week. We also regularly hold CM Volume study groups for parents as well as the Natural State Charlotte Mason Retreat.
“We spread an abundant and delicate feast in the programmes and each small guest assimilates what he can” (Charlotte Mason, Vol. 6, p. 183).
Spread the Feast Community is a community for home educators and families in Shelby County and the surrounding areas interested in learning about the Charlotte Mason method and philosophy of education. Our primary goal is to be a place of encouragement for parents on their homeschooling journey, and to grow in community with one another.
We also provide learning opportunities for the children so they too can grow in community and friendship with one another. Spread the Feast is open to all that are interested in learning more about the Charlotte Mason method and philosophy of education. We welcome CM veterans, those transitioning to CM, those that are just beginning to learn about CM, those that are simply curious about CM, and everyone in between.
We host 2 book discussions a month- a daytime one for adults and kids of all ages and an evening one for parents and "babes in arms." We also have mother culture and family events, clubs (scouting, nature), nature outings, "early years" meet-ups, and more!
This year we are reading In Vital Harmony by Karen Glass.
"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.”
We meet once a month in a member's home to discuss an article or topic. Readings are assigned each month. Recent topics have included: Breadth and Balance in Family Life and Education, Learning and Living in Community, and discussion of articles from The Parents' Review.
We also try to arrange a mini retreat once or twice a year with immersion classes and discussion.
