One of the greatest wonders of my journey as a home school mother is seeing my own education blossom and thrive. The wonderful people at the Circe Institute have essentially home schooled me as I home-schooled my children. Andrew Kern, in his writings and lectures, has given me a greater vision than I started with. He taught me to see my children as souls to be nurtured, not products to be measured. My school is now a much kinder and gentler place, but also a place with higher standards of goodness, truth and beauty.
The Circe Institute is a tremendous resource for educators. You will find articles, webinars and the phenomenal Lost Tools of Writing on their website. Their thought-provoking and visually stunning magazine is a great source of inspiration and energy as I plan out our studies.
Today, the Circe Institute is graciously giving away one of my favorite books of all time.
Ten Ways To Destroy The Imagination Of Your Child by Anthony Esolen
This book is so important for parents to read. Anthony Esolen is an incredible writer and I found myself re-reading sentences just for the pure joy. If there was one book I would recommend for the parents of preschoolers, it is this one.
That’s not all. I can hardly contain myself, but Circe is also giving you THE ENTIRE FULL RECORDINGS OF THIS YEARS CIRCE CONFERENCE. Sorry, didn’t mean to yell, but I just can’t believe their generosity.
This audio collection features talks by Wes Callihan, John Hodges, Andrew Kern, John Mark Reynolds, Andrew Seeley, Eva Brann, Barbara Elliott, Laura Berquist, Jenny Rollins, and many others. Each of the talks was presented in Houston, Texas as part of our 2014 Conference on the purpose, essence, and practice of Christian classical education.
The talks in this audio collection will be shipped on a single disc as mp3s.
I’m very excited to be able to attend the 2015 Conference in Charleston, South Carolina this year! Registration is already open…care to join me?
