A Year of Healing

A Year of Healing

moriah-picOur experience with Janet Newberry and the Charlotte Mason philosophy of education was amazing and proved to be a year of healing for our 11-year-old daughter, Moriah. She had been weighed down with anxiety in a traditional school environment and as a result had begun to doubt her intelligence and worth. She believed she could not create anything of worth in art, she despised math, and she would choose to do just about anything besides read a book! By the end of the year, she had created a beautiful nature journal, several pieces of handwork, and had gained quite a bit of confidence back in math. She actually discovered she enjoyed beautiful works of literature and she learned to write with precision and creativity. Now, almost a year later, she has hungrily consumed about 25 books on her own – she loves to read! We are so thankful for the ways in which the Lord used Janet and her patient love for our daughter during that year and we will forever remember it as one of the richest and most beneficial experiences of her life.
