    Christine Perrin on Poetry and the Moral Imagination

    We had the pleasure of chatting with this accomplished guest about poetry and the moral imagination. It was an exciting conversation that leaves the listener with much to consider about how poetry is being read and even where we are not engaging poetry in our lives.

    Dante in the Homeschool: An Interview with Erin Deschene

    Dante in the Homeschool: An Interview with Erin Deschene

    This was an exciting episode for me, Ashley, personally. I love this amazing guest, mostly because we can really dig into the classical tradition and challenge each other with our differing knowledge bases. I hope that you enjoy this interview as much as I did. Erin makes me laugh and brings my heart to Jesus in every conversation. She is sharing her love of Dante with us, so put your ear buds in and get ready to laugh. Side note: It was Melrose Place...not 90210...LOL ... that I was thinking of!

In the current Classical homeschooling climate, the focus has been on the advancement of Western Culture. However, Classical Education is not tied to an earthly structure but is based on more lofty ideals. Join us while we explore the topic!
