For many years now, Afterthoughts has been a sort of intellectual watering hole for classical, Charlotte Mason homeschooling mamas. At Afterthoughts, we have spent over a decade nourishing our minds on theology, educational philosophy, and a million other books and subjects thrown in – all the while bringing these ideas into a direct collision course with our daily lives. As an audio companion, this podcast is a chance to hear Afterthoughts blog posts rather than read them. Couple that with some bonus content focused on books and interviews, and you’ve got AfterCast.

    How She Learns: My Personal Continuing Education Journey

    Today is the FINAL installment of this Learning How to Live Series -- which makes this the END of Season 4! In this episode, I take the categories we’ve discussed and show how they play out in my life – not because it's the one right way, but because it’s useful to have an example. Thank you for joining me this season. Please make sure you're subscribed so that you're notified when AfterCast come back after the break.

    A Mama’s Continuing Education: Oh, the Endless Possibilities!

    A Mama’s Continuing Education: Oh, the Endless Possibilities!

    Today is NOT just a review. Yes, we walk through everything we’ve learned over this huge series and remind ourselves of the amazingly numerous possibilities. But the point isn’t the review – the point is to think of these as categories and then discover what similar options exist for us today. I think you’ll find some real gems to help keep you learning in the midst of your busy days.

    Today we begin to end our Learning How to Live series. We’re heading toward application. Before we get too practical, we need to discuss the WHY. Why keep learning? There are some good reasons to learn and some bad or insufficient reasons to learn, and it takes wisdom to know the difference. Listen up for an exploration of the heart of self-education.

    On Mother Culture

    Today, we take a look at something called Mother Culture. If you found the idea of a Mothers’ Education Course, which we talked about in Episodes 27 and 28, overwhelming, this is the solution for you. Make sure you listen to the end so you hear all about the freebie tracker I offer that makes Mother Culture even more fun.
