Yvette Hampton talks with Cindy Rollins, homeschool mom, speaker, and author, about finding meaning, purpose, and beauty in the litany of home-life. They discuss how moms can develop lifelong habits for themselves and how they can encourage their children to develop good habits. How can you focus on a daily rhythm rather than strict scheduling? And how can you zero in on the power of attention (in the student, in the mom, and in society) and its role in a future life of prayer?
Cindy Rollins homeschooled her nine children for over 30 years. She is the co-host with Angelina Stanford and Thomas Banks of the popular Literary Life Podcast and curates the Over the Back Fence Newsletter at Cindyrollins.net. She is the author of Mere Motherhood: Morning Time, Nursery Rhymes, and My Journey Toward Sanctification; A Handbook for Morning Time, and the Mere Motherhood Newsletters.
She runs an active Patreon group where they read Charlotte Mason’s Volumes and discuss questions pertaining to motherhood and life. Her heart’s desire is to encourage moms using Charlotte Mason’s timeless principles. She lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee with her husband Tim and dog Max. You can also find her traveling around the country visiting her 13+ grandchildren, watching her youngest son play baseball, and occasionally speaking at events.
