The Charlotte Mason Show | A Homeschool Podcast

Mar 14, 2022

As we prepare for season six of The Charlotte Mason Show, we are bringing back a few of our most popular episodes in a midseason mini-series!

In this podcast, Julie talks with Leah Boden about:

- How she came to the simplicity of Charlotte Mason’s methods

- Ways to face the challenges of comparing your homeschool to others

- Feeling overwhelmed

- The importance of patience in seeing the fruit of a Charlotte Mason education

“The next element is confidence. Parents should trust themselves more. Everything is not done by restless endeavor. The mere blessed fact of the parental relationship and of that authority which belongs to it, by right and by nature, acts upon the children as do sunshine and shower on a seed in good soil.” (Volume 3, School Education p. 29)

“Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)

Guest biography

Leah is a long-time follower of Jesus, wife to Dave, and mom to four children. She and her husband are lead pastors of Mosaic Church and home educators who have been using the Charlotte Mason method for 12 years. She teaches at Modern Miss Mason and is the author of Moments on Mothering. Leah loves good books with a large cup of coffee, her daily dose of nature, travel, and being home with her family.

Host biography

Julie H. Ross believes that every child needs a feast of living ideas to grow intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. As a former school teacher, curriculum coordinator, and assistant director of a homeschool academy, Julie has worked with hundreds of students and parents over the past 20 years. She has also been homeschooling her own five children for over a decade. Julie developed the Charlotte Mason curriculum, A Gentle Feast, to provide parents with the tools and resources needed to provide a rich and abundant educational feast full of books, beauty, and Biblical truth. Julie lives in South Carolina. When she’s not busy homeschooling, reading children’s books, hiking, or writing curriculum, you can find her taking a nap.
