Truth, Goodness and Beauty with Annie Ferrell

LS101 Truth, Goodness and Beauty with Annie FerrellTruth, Beauty and Goodness

Today on the podcast, True North Homeschool Academy Director, Lisa Nehring is talking with True North teacher, Angie Ferrell about Truth, Beauty and Goodness.

These are terms you hear in the homeschooling world a LOT, but what exactly do they mean, and why should we even care about these concepts?

History of Education

Standing on Truth allows us to build a firm foundation and is that from which goodness and beauty flow.

As believers Truth is based on the person of Jesus Christ and the redemptive salvation he offers through acknowledging him as Lord and Savior, as well as the Bible, which is his love letter to humanity.

Goodness is that expression of truth. As believers, we avhe an obligation to fulfill truth and think about God’s definition of things. Goodness is the essential nature of things and utilizing them for the purpose for which they have been created.

Moral imagination allows us to fully understand goodness. Goodness is tied to purpose and our purpose can change through the seasons. Our job might seem small but it is so valuable.

Honor Patronage, Kinship and Purity by David DeSilva

Beauty has to do with physics and the Law of Attraction. Truth attracts, lies seduce.

Beauty gives us a life of purpose and encourages us to serve others, it flows from goodness, which flows from Truth.

Edventure Together: Books, Travel, and Discovery

Life Skills 101 Edventure together: Books, Travel, and DiscoveryEdventure Together: Books, Travel and Discovery!

Today, True North Homeschool Academy Director, Lisa Nehring, is joined by Angie Ferrell to talk about edventuring with Books!

One of Angie’s favorite book discoveries as she homeschooled was the geography series by Holling C Holling, which includes:

Minn of the Mississippi

Paddle to the Sea

Seabird

Tree on the Trail

These books are beautifully illustrated, visually rich chapter books that read like informative journals. Angie and her family discovered “Seabird” years ago on one of their many visits to Florida and she began collecting others. As a result, they took trips to find the treasures they discovered in the books! What an edventure!

Tying in what you are reading and studying with filed trips and vacations is such a beautiful way to solidify learning, helps students discover new interests and passions and can be a jumping off point for other great areas of learning (like Angie’s sons love of boats- which is leading them on yet another edventure)! It all ties into creating a lifestyle of learning and developing autodidacts.

And, if you listened to me talk about how to future proof your kids, you know that developing their ability to learn well and independently is going to be a skill that sets them apart and serves them well in our future economy!

Fall class registration is open, classes begin the week of August 22! Join one of our many fantastic literature or composition classes and discover the joy of reading living books!
