Expanded with 35% new content, this updated print version of the wildly successful eBook will serve as a useful guide for parents taking on the task of homeschooling.
Parents making the decision to homeschool are generally motivated by love for their children and they desire to give them the best education in suitable environment. However, many parents, predominately mothers, who have taken this challenge find themselves facing perpetual stress, worry, and anxiety. Guiding readers through a practical, faith-based, inspirational book, Sarah Mackenzie addresses these concerns directly. She draws from her own experiences and study of restful learning (scholé) and the challenges she met to bring restful learning to her six children.
“Reading Teaching from Rest was truly transformational to our entire homeschool year! I’d been feeling weary and burnt out as a homeschool mom and Sarah’s words breathed life into my tired bones and fresh inspiration into our days. The benefits and blessings we’ve reaped in our home since implementing Morning Time have been amazing. It’s so wonderful to be starting the homeschool day with anticipation instead of dread and to have my kids eager to learn and begging for more. Thank you, thank you, Sarah! We are eternally grateful to you!”
—Crystal Paine, New York Times bestselling author of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode, founder of moneysavingmom.com
“In Teaching from Rest, Sarah beautifully reminds us that we will never be able to give our children the ‘perfect’ education. Instead of crumbling under the weight of our attempts to do so, we can let the burdens fall off our tired backs.”
—Jamie Martin, simplehomeschool.net, author of Give Your Child the World
“Sarah Mackenzie is winsome and wise, a real ally for teachers in the trenches. Teaching from Rest is profoundly helpful for home educators at any stage. It’s been a blast of light in our family, and a rich resource for our homeschooling community.”
—S.D. Smith, author of The Green Ember and The Black Star of Kingston
