Editorial Reviews


Teaching from Rest is a quarterly read for me because that's how often I need a shot in the arm not just for spearheading my kids' education, but for parenting. This book does just that. Sarah reminds me that I'm made to do this job of sharing the journey with my children, pointing the way as I forge my own path of learning. Her words are balm in a desert that taunts us with a need to be perfect at all times. Teaching from Rest reminds me to take care of myself so that I can pour out that needed passion from true, inward authenticity. --Tsh Oxenreider, author of Notes from a Blue Bike: The Art of Living Intentionally in a Chaotic World and founder of theArtofSimple.net

Reading Teaching from Rest was truly transformational to our entire homeschool year! I'd been feeling weary and burnt out as a homeschool mom and Sarah's words breathed life into my tired bones and fresh inspiration into our days. The benefits and blessings we've reaped in our home since implementing Morning Time have been amazing. It's so wonderful to be starting the homeschool day with anticipation instead of dread and to have my kids eager to learn and begging for more. Thank you, thank you, Sarah! We are eternally grateful to you! --Crystal Paine, New York Times bestselling author of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode, founder of moneysavingmom.com

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, simplehomeschool.net, author of Give Your Child the World
