A Dangerous Adventure

A Dangerous Adventure

Charlotte Mason’s method helps us to discover the beauty that is all around us. But does her method help us when beauty cannot be found? This is the rest of my Charlotte Mason story, recorded at the 2017 Living Education Retreat. This article is only available as audio, linked below.

Special thanks to Jordan Sramek and The Rose Ensemble for permission to share an excerpt from “Maria Magdelene.” Special thanks also to Leif Olsen for his new recording of the Hosanna.

  1. Hi Art- I was absolutely inspired by your talk. Thank you so much for being transparent. I noticed it says in the description that this is the rest of your Charlotte Mason story. Is their a preceding part to this?

    1. I apologize for the ambiguity in the description. I called it the rest of my Charlotte Mason story because I wrote about the first part of it back in 2008 in an article entitled “A New Adventure.” But I cover that information again in this talk, so this talk stands alone and tells the entire story.

  2. Thank you for sharing this. I listened to this alone and then again with my husband. So many things gripped us! The way you described Ms. Mason’s principles and ideas as a chemical that affects the whole of our lives is so very true. Your story touched us deeply.

  3. I found this account gripping, also. Dear Barbara, I admire your courage and fortitude. Thank you, Art for sharing so personally your road of experience with its bright hills and dark valleys. The Christian testimony of your family is a great encouragement to me (Job 13:15). It is, no doubt, a touching and meaningful testimony to all who listen here.

    1. Thank you for listening to my testimony and for sharing these words. It means a lot to me. I too admire Barbara’s courage and fortitude. We get the English word courage from the Latin word for heart. It seems that love and courage go hand in hand. It was love that made her strong, and her love is the heart of our home.

  4. Hi Art,
    Thank you very much for sharing your testimony. Such words breathe life and encouragement and hope for the future. I know it probably wasn’t easy to tell all of that.
