The Charlotte Mason method is based on Charlotte's firm belief that the child is a person and we must educate that whole person, not just his mind. If you would like to learn more about her "living methods" we recommend you prioritize attending Jennifer Mackintosh's workshops while you're at the Conference.

3 p.m. Saturday: The Morning Basket - Ageless & Inspiring
Jennifer embraced the idea of a Morning Basket almost 12 years ago – before it was popular or even had a name! The Morning Basket is a collection of inspiring books and things that is ageless in its offerings, span abilities, speak to loveliness, and give the day an inspiring start. In this workshop, you will learn the four essential things that will streamline your day and rebuild culture through the Morning Basket, brainstorm about how to build your own Morning Basket, learn how to implement Morning Basket with kids from high school to preschool, and talk about some common challenges you may encounter in Morning Basket time.
