About

This blog is about the things that interest me, namely Charlotte Mason homeschooling and Reformed Christian theology. One of the ideas I keep coming back to is that it is important to know the beliefs and presuppositions of those whom we read. So it seems only fitting that I tell you a little about myself.

I am a reformed Christian (aka, a Calvinist), a member of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America (RPCNA).

I am a homeschooling mom to 4 kids, two of whom are in college (as of now, in 2020). I started off as more of an eclectic homeschooler but began moving early on towards Charlotte Mason’s philosophy of education. I have no particular expertise in this area, but I have spent some years (getting on to decades!) at this point reading and thinking about education and theology and how they coincide. I am not a Charlotte Mason purist because I don’t believe her philosophy is perfect and, as a reformed Christian, I disagree with some of her fundamental assumptions. But I do believe her philosophy is about the most biblical one out there and I implement many of her methods on my homeschool.

My training is not in the realm of education or theology. I have a Master’s degree in Biblical Hebrew and was ABD (“all but dissertation) in a Ph.D. program.

Other facts about me: I live in New England. I am a living kidney donor. I have one child with type 1 diabetes. I am a basset hound owner and have two cats.
