Moms: Learn and Grow! (Part I): A Mason Jar Collaboration with the Schole Sisters
In this very special episode of The Mason Jar, Cindy chats with Mystie Winckler, Pam Barnhill, and Brandy Vencel, her friends from the Schole Sisters, for part one of a two-part conversation about self-education for moms. And once you've listened to this part of the conversation head over to the Schole Sisters podcast for part 2!
In part one, discussion touches on Charlotte Mason's views on self-education and how that applies to moms. In part two, the ladies take it all a step further with discussion of why reading is important, where hobbies fit in, and MORE!
While you're at it, make sure to check out their upcoming online retreat, Learning Well, featuring Cindy. It's set to take place on September 15th and you can learn more about it here.

Charlotte Mason quote:
There is a saying of King Alfred’s that I like to apply to our School,—‘I have found a door,’ he says. That is just what I hope your School is to you -- a door opening into a great palace of art and knowledge in which there are many chambers all opening into gardens or field paths, forest or hills. One chamber, entered through a beautiful Gothic archway, is labelled Bible Knowledge, and there the Scholar finds goodness as well as knowledge, as indeed he does in many others of the fair chambers. You see that doorway with much curious lettering? History is within, and that is, I think, an especially delightful chamber. But it would take too long to investigate all these pleasant places and indeed you could label a good many of the doorways from the headings in your term’sprogramme. (In Memoriam, p. 117)
