We at the CME Retreat know exactly what values drive us. We built them into our very name. Community, Motivation, and self-Education: these are the values that our leadership team is working to foster in ourselves and in the lives we touch.
I love Charlotte Mason's principles because they are about life, not just education. In the past few years, I have been deeply challenged to embody the ideals that I want to pass on to my kids. If I want to raise readers who are curious, confident that they can self-educate, and willing to struggle through a dense book, I have to work to become that reader. In the spirit of self-education, would you consider joining me for a reading challenge this year? For many people, just finding time to read is a challenge in itself. Once we carve out that time, though, what shall we read? How do we keep our reading list challenging, varied, and enjoyable?
