Welcome to Just Living Books!

The stories we tell our children matter — this is a lesson that I’ve come back to again and again. Just Living Books documents my experiences and choices homeschooling my two children with that premise in mind. How do I gently lead my children into a love of learning and a deeper appreciation for the complexity of the human experience and an appreciation of the non-human world as well?

Here you will find my own reflections, along with lists of books we’ve loved and nitty-gritty details about how we make school “work” for us at home. If you’re looking to classify us, we’re a mostly secular, progressive, eclectic homeschooling family strongly informed by Charlotte Mason’s educational philosophies. My hope is that the resources here will be an inspiration and help to others on their own learning journeys, wherever they lead!
