Bringing joy and truth into each moment of life.


Monthly Discussion Group:

Volumes 1-6 of Miss Charlotte M. Mason

We are beginning Volume 2, “Parents & Children” in August 2018.

A gathering of encouragement, truth & goodness will be meeting on the THIRD Saturday of each month from 9:30 to 11:00am at Panera Bread in Gastonia, NC (conveniently located right off Interstate 85 minutes outside of Mecklenburg County, Cleveland County & York County)…please email for further information and to be added to an email list (that updates any date changes, as I am a momma of six with a new little one in my arms (and life is very full).)

During August 2017- March 2018 we walked through Volume 1 of “Home Education” by Charlotte M. Mason.  It was a such a wonderful time of fellowship and discussion each month.  We will pause for May- July to be with family, assimilate and refresh ourselves & family with our new knowledge.

On August 18, 2018 we begun with Volume 2 of “Parents and Children” by Charlotte M. Mason.  Let’s all try to read, but always come and delight in refreshing company and encouraging embraces, no matter what.


August: Preface- Chapter 1

September: Chapters 2- 9, pages 10-91

October: Chapters 10-16, pages 92-177

November: Chapters 17- 23, pages 178-256

December: Chapters 24- 26, pages 257-290

Additionally, please come with a commonplace entry from the current volume’s reading portion (simply a sentence or passage or even only a short phrase that Miss Mason gives in the reading selection for the month). This will be a nice way to help us stay connected in the volumes when we are in discussion each month. If you do not already have a commonplace book a simple journal will work well. Adding to it as you come to something that speaks to you personally, whether in the volumes or any other book you may be reading through.

****If you would like to join us and we’re not able to come last year, please join in on the fun and encouragement each month.  We would love to have you!****
