This is kind of funny after I’ve been writing about the PNEU conference I learned about at the Armitt. I want to invite you to a conference I’ll be joining. I’ve had the privilege of speaking at a few different Charlotte Mason events—some larger, some smaller. I love the chance to connect with educators who are as interested in learning and exploring as I am, pretty much like those young ladies from a hundred years ago. I’ve had one speaking engagement cancelled in 2020 so far, and others may be in jeopardy. Maybe there’s a silver lining? I was invited to speak at an online event last year, but my summer was busy with ministry and preparing for camp and travel. I had to refuse because there just wasn’t room in my schedule. So, they invited me to speak again this year, and like everyone else, I have a pretty empty calendar, and I stay home most of the time, so yes! I can do that! And I’d love to see you there.
It’s the Charlotte Mason Inspired Online Homeschool Conference. This is an online conference to begin with, so they haven’t had to cancel or postpone! It’s five whole days of speakers on a wide range of Charlotte Mason topics. I don’t know all of them, but I am familiar with several, and it’s good company. I hope you’ll consider joining us. You can sign up here. (Full disclosure—that’s an affiliate link.)
I’ll be speaking about “A Few Broad Essential Principles,” and if you’ve dipped into In Vital Harmony, you can probably guess the principles I have in mind. However, I’ll also be discussing the way that the core principles affect the various parts of a Charlotte Mason Education. If you’ve been a little glum because summer events, conventions, and conferences have been cancelled or postponed, this might be just the ticket to brighten things up a bit. It’s a lot of content for a great price, and attendees will receive a virtual swag bag of “cool stuff” and be eligible for all kinds of great giveaways. I’m looking forward to it, and I hope you can join me.
