Teaching from Rest

Teaching from Rest Summary

Classical Academic Press is excited to partner with Sarah Mackenzie from Amongst Lovely Things to bring you the first printed copy of her eBook, Teaching from Rest: A Homeschooler’s Guide to Unshakable Peace with foreword by Dr. Christopher Perrin. This new and revised edition contains 35% new content.
Those who have made the decision to homeschool their children have done so out of great love for their children and a desire to provide them 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 this practical, faith-based, and inspirational book, 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.

Book Reviews


Teaching from Rest5 star

I'm so glad I purchased this book! I think it will be another annual read like "For the Sale of the Children" and "Honey for a Child's Heart." I am on a tight budget and as a homeschool mom, have a ton of books, but this gave me a lot to re-evaluate as we are having some issues regarding my kids staying on task with school lately and attitudes {sigh}. I was intrigued since the author had six children like me, the last two being twins (again like me) and a toddler along with school age children and I wanted to see how did she manage it all? I definitely feel as though the past 15 months has been a struggle (the last trimester of a twin pregnancy and their first year) to keep a routine and structure and "check off our to-do list." I read this book in one evening and one morning and honestly feel refreshed and "ready to teach from rest."55


Incredible!5 star

This book is so encouraging for homeschool mamas! Gets your focus on Jesus and why we are doing this in the first place. Love how simple she makes it. I will read this every year before I start school.55
