Description

“There is no school equal to a decent home, and no teacher equal to a virtuous parent.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Our purpose for this conference is to encourage families to bring back virtue and excellence in learning to their children using old-fashioned morals and principles of education. We are especially inspired by the writings and philosophy of the 19th century educator Charlotte Mason.

Old-Fashioned Learning:

  • Promotes inspired education in the family circle at home, rather than educational institutions.

  • Utilizes "living books", or literature with noble, exemplary ideals.

  • Supports mothers and fathers in their God-given roles as teachers.

  • Espouses the methodolgy of the one-room schoolhouse, teaching multiple children of different ages at the same time.

  • Embraces traditional resources, as well as principled resources the modern world has to offer.

  • Strives for excellence through diligent daily study.

  • Moves at a slow and steady pace, using weekly subjects as anchors of learning each day of the week.

  • Teaches subjects such as Gospel Study, History, Music Study, Art Study, Nature Study, Shakespeare, Poetry, Memorization, Handicrafts, Penmanship, and others.

  • Seeks inspiration from the heavens in the guidance of each child being taught.

A sampling of what people have to say about Penny’s Charlotte Mason Instruction:

* “I just wanted to thank you for the excellent conference. We’ve been ‘doing’ CM for almost 10 years and I can honestly say I came away from your seminar with something new to do/study/think about in EVERY single subject. I’ve been to several home ed conferences over the years, and this was by far the most useful, most entertaining, and most interesting! The information you presented was so very useful, and the finest introduction to the CM method I’ve ever seen. Your visual graphics were very professional and added considerable to the presentation.” ~Pittsburgh, PA

* "Penny has a way of sharing Charlotte Mason’s ideas so that you feel you can really go home and implement these methods. It was so inspiring!” ~San Diego, CA

* “Penny’s seminar is the bridge between Charlotte Mason theory and its application. She gives understandable, practical advice, I left with the confidence to start applying this method immediately.” ~Henderson, NV



Our goal is for each attendee to come away from the conference feeling confident, peaceful, and prepared to teach their own children with joy and trust in Divine Guidance.

Join us for this day of uplifting encouragement!
