Plumfield Moms

Diane Pendergraft and Sara Masarik are homeschoolers, classical educators, avid readers, and Christians, and they have a passion for the ancient Greek paideia and the loving education of Louisa May Alcott‘s Plumfield (from her novel Little Men). Their primary vocation is that of marriage and motherhood, but they feel a secondary call, as educators and homeschool moms, to walk with families who are seeking to help form souls who are capable of responding to the vocation that God has called them to. They cherish books which reveal Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. Diane and Sara share their excellent book reviews on the Plumfield and Paideia website and they chat about all things literary on their podcast, Plumfield Moms.

Sabbath Mood Homeschool

Nicole Williams has carefully studied the methods Charlotte Mason employed for teaching science and applied them for today's students. Charlotte Mason's goal for school science was to instill a sense of wonder and awe in students and to provide them with the common information that allows for scientific literacy. While many parents see the importance of selecting books deliberately and including relevant field study and experiments, they may not have the time to create a living science curriculum for their children, or they do not know where to begin. Through Sabbath Mood Homeschool Nicole offers extensive science book recommendations and a Living Science Curriculum to help parents feel confident their children are feasting on the kind of living science education Charlotte Mason intended: a curriculum that promotes wonder and admiration while preparing them to be scientifically literate citizens.
