Those who have made the decision to homeschool their children have done so out of great love for them and a desire to provide them an excellent education in the context of a warm, enriching home. Yet so many parents (mainly mothers) who have taken up this challenge find the enterprise often full of stress, worry, and anxiety. In this practical, faith-based, and inspirational book, Sarah Mackenzie addresses these questions directly, appealing to her own study of restful learning and her struggle to bring restful learning to her (six) children.

"Given me strength to press on & furthered my love for Sarah Mackenzie."
This book is amazing. As a new homeschooling mom (in our 5th week of our 2st homeschool year), I have already come to feel slightly overwhelmed with all there is " to do". The fear creeps up from time to time about whether or not I'll screw up our kids. But, I know the Lord has called me to do this great work. I must continue to trust that He will see it through to completion. I must rest in that.
Thank you, Sarah for reminding me to rest- to trust that when I need Him (which is all the time), He will immediately answer my cry. I can rest assured in that.
"This book is a must have for every homeschool mom!"
I loved this book!! I am preparing to listen to it again as I paint our study room. This book gave wonderful quotes and references. The advice and examples were easily appliable to daily life. The reader (who is also the author) read it beautifully. It was like she was inside my head as she wrote it and it was like talking to a dear friend as she read it.
"What a blessing!"
I will listen to and read this again and possibly again! I believe this is a must read for all homeschool families!
Thank you for this book!
"Such an encouraging book"
This was an encouraging book on how to love Jesus as we walk with Christ in our homeschooling.
This book is a great reminder to focus on the essentials and to slow down and enjoy the journey.
"This is why we homeschool!"
Sarah does an excellent job of reminding the homeschool mother of why she chose to accept the job of educating her own kids in the first place. Not only that, but she writes in a beautifully crafted way, exemplifying the deep love of literature and the written word for which she's become known. My heart is filled with gratitude for a book that brings us consistently back to the true aim of cultivating hearts and minds- not merely inputing data- and offering to our children an education steeped in beauty, wisdom, and truth that they (hopefully!) find irresistible! A book to read at least once a year, to be sure! I advise BOTH the audible version (to ensure busy mamas finish the book in a timely fashion!) and the print version (for underlining, notes, & reference!).
What a balm for this homeschool mama's soul!! I have cried and felt such a peace as I listened! Thank you!!!!
"my new favorite homeschool handbook."
wonderful! new favorite. buying it for the ladies in my small group! a yearly read to refresh the homeschool mama's heart and renew her hope.
Sarah Mackenzie inspires me to not only teach from rest but to live life from rest. I could listen to her talk about homeschooling and reading aloud for hours. This a a great little gem of a book!
This book is great. It helped me turn my mindset to the right perspective and what the goal should be. The performance overall was good, though there were a few hiccups here and there. I recommend it to anyone who is seeking to homeschool or is currently struggling with homeschooling. Or anyone who just wants a good reminder about the purpose of homeschooling from a Christian perspective
