There has been a lot of radio silence around here and I am sorry. We have been up to our eyeballs in all things crowdfunding, but we’re almost there! The Kickstarter campaign launches Monday, September 10th and our Backstage Pass members get a sneak peak at the crowdfunding video.
A behind the scenes look at the making of Scholé, a short documentary that examines the practice and philosophy of teaching your children from a state of rest. It is our submission to the My RØDE Reel 2018 Short Film Competition.
Author Sarah Mackenzie wrote the hugely influential book, Teaching from Rest. The philosophies in the book were based on the ideas of classical education experts Andrew Kern and Dr. Christopher Perrin. In her book Sarah was able to refine these ideas into practical everyday ideas that have revolutionized homeschooling for scores of thankful readers.

There’s a new OFFICIAL TRAILER for Schoolhouse Rocked!
Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution is coming to theaters in early 2019. In this new official trailer Sarah Mackenzie, author of Teaching From Rest and Andrew Kern of the CiRCE Institute give a bit of advice for teaching from a state of rest.
“Jesus didn’t expect the disciples to feed the 5,000. He said, ‘bring me what you have.’ And they brought him this basket of loaves and fish and he turned it into enough for the multitude. Rest, for me, looks like me bringing my basket, just a little bit that I have, and letting him turn it into something more beautiful than I could on my own.” – Sarah Mackenzie
“What I want to say that about rest is that that’s what the Lord has called us to and if you believe that you should be homeschooling your children then you need to ask yourself a basic question. Do you believe that because you’re afraid of something, or do you believe that because you’re called to it? Our Lord has said to us very clearly, ‘if you’re weary and you’re heavy laden come unto me and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you.’ And then he says, ‘my yoke is easy and my burden is light.'” – Andrew Kern
