Teaching From Rest: A Homeschooler’s Guide to Unshakable Peace Printed Book
Those who have made the decision to homeschool have done so out of great love for their children and a desire to provide them with 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 her practical, faith-based, and inspirational book Teaching from Rest, Sarah Mackenzie addresses these questions directly, appealing to her own study of restful learning (scholé) and her struggle to bring restful learning to her children.
The Read-Aloud Family: Making Meaningful and Lasting Connections with Your Kids
In The Read-Aloud Family, Sarah champions the lifelong benefits of reading to children, offers extensive book lists, and equips parents to make reading aloud a lasting family ritual.
Connecting deeply with our kids can be difficult in our busy, technology-driven lives. Reading aloud offers us a chance to be fully present with our children in spite of whatever chaos the day brings, allowing us to develop meaningful bonds that can form no other way. As Sarah Mackenzie has found with her six children, reading aloud to kids long after they are able to read to themselves gives us the opportunity to go on adventures together, side by side. Sharing stories with our children and teenagers fortifies them with the inner strength they need to handle life’s challenges. Reading aloud increases academic success, inspires compassion, and builds character in a world more and more difficult for children to navigate without a strong foundation.
Sarah Mackenzie created the Read-Aloud Revival podcast on a whim. This fateful decision resulted in a highly rated show that, three years later, has over two million downloads and reaches tens of thousands of listeners with each episode.
For over three years, Sarah has been interviewing leaders, authors, and experts in the read-aloud movement, connecting them with families all over the world who desire to help their kids fall in love with books.
Sarah lives in the Inland Northwest with her husband, Andrew, where they homeschool their six kids (including identical twin boys). She considers it her high calling to make sure her kids are well-stocked in the best books she can find.
