SS #61: Have Your Humble Pie … and Eat It, Too!

Sometimes we think we have to be smart and knowledgeable to learn. We know we aren’t, so we attribute our difficulty or resistance to learning to not being good enough. However, that’s exactly the acknowledgement we need to make before we can learn!

Humility is not a hindrance to learning. It’s the prerequisite required to learn at all.

Today’s episode was recorded live at the beach house while we were at the fall retreat! The sound quality is a little less than our usual, but we can’t tell you how fun it was to record face-to-face.

    Today’s Topic: Docility & Humility as Leaners

    Charlotte Mason says that learning requires both authority and docility. What is docility? What is the proper posture for a learner?

    How do we live this out in our own lives and then how do we teach it to our children?
