Today, I’m interrupting our Charlotte Mason series to bring you this season’s special conversation. Brittney McGann is back with me today; I hope you recognize her from last season. Brittney has been studying Charlotte Mason for over seven years. Mason’s philosophy embodies all the things Brittney loved about her own upbringing and everything she would have wished for in her education, had she known it was possible. Brittney hosted the Grace to Build Retreat in Black Mountain, North Carolina for three years and has presented workshops at multiple Charlotte Mason conferences. These days she is teaching her three children, leading two Charlotte Mason groups and working with her husband to restore native plants to their 3.5 acres.
You can find Brittney’s articles at Charlotte Mason Poetry, Charlotte Mason Living and the Charlotte Mason Institute blogs. She has been a guest on A Delectable Education podcast and also written the introduction for Paper Modelling by M. Swannell, one of the sloyd books used in the PNEU programmes. You can find that book through Amazon or Living Library Press.
Today, Brittney and I discuss the “Mother’s Compass”. We talk about Charlotte Mason and working within limitations — for both ourselves and our children. It’s a great discussion you won’t want to miss!
