For the homeschooling mom who worries that she isn't enough.

You aren't.

Teaching From Rest is a quarterly read for me, because that’s how often I need a shot in the arm. In it, Sarah reminds me to take care of myself, so that I can pour out that needed passion from true, inward authenticity.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How different is the second edition from the first edition? +

The 2nd edition of Teaching from Rest contains 35% new content. I kept writing after the first edition e-book was published, and that writing went into second edition! Also, Dr. Perrin put me through my paces with edits and helped me get the book juuuuust right, so things have been reorganized and revised somewhat.

The Audio Companion has not changed at all. The printable Companion Journal has been reorganized to match the order of the 2nd edition book, and contains maybe 10% new content. If you have the Companion set from the 1st edition, you probably don't need the revised set.

Is there a print book available? +

Cue the hallelujah chorus! Yesireebob, there is. The book is available in print from both Classical Academic Press and Amazon.

Is there an e-book available? +

The book will be available on Amazon Kindle very soon.  I'll put a link here when it's ready. :)

Where can I get the Audio & Journal Companion? +

The Audio Companion and printable Companion Journal are now sold exclusively at Classical Academic Press. You can buy them on their own, or as part of a bundle. Note that these are digital products and will be sent to you via email.

Hi there!

I'm Sarah, mother of six little monkeys and author of Teaching from Rest: A Homeschooler's Guide to Unshakable Peace. We were blown away by the way the first edition of the book was received- thank you for all of your words of encouragement!

Here's the good news: Classical Academic Press is publishing the second edition of Teaching from Rest, and it's available now.

I've had some more time to stew on what teaching from rest looks like in real-deal crazy life. This past year I've had the opportunity to travel about the country and sling hugs around so many of your necks, and listen to you tell me what's keeping you from teaching from rest-- and you know?

It's the same stuff I'm struggling with. Still. It's all in the second edition, and I can't wait to share it with you.

What people are saying about Teaching from Rest

In Teaching from Rest, Sarah beautifully reminds us that we will never be able to give our children the ‘perfect’ education. Instead of crumbling under the weight of our attempts to do so, we can let the burdens fall off our tired backs.

Jamie Martin Simple Homeschool

Teaching from Rest will fill even the most frantic, overwhelmed homeschooling mom with a deep sense of peace.

Jennifer Fulwiler Something Other Than God

You need this. In it is wisdom that takes my breath away. It’s both spiritual and practical- truly one of those rare, life-changing messages that no mother should miss.

Elizabeth Foss Small Steps for Catholic Moms

As a mom who has graduated two daughters from our homeschool, I can say with confidence that living the kind of homeschooling- the kind of resting in God- that Sarah discusses has paid off enormously in our home. Teaching from Rest is an encouraging, humble, honest, and gentle book. It is a gem.
