Our Guest Speakers
Dawn lives in Maryland with her husband, two sons, and their dog Storm. She encountered Charlotte Mason’s philosophy nearly 10 years ago and has been following Mason’s principles in her home ever since.
Dawn is also author of the Swedish Drill Revisited series of Charlotte Mason physical education handbooks and A Reasoned Patriotism. She leads a local group of scholars in the study of Shakespeare and Plutarch and also teaches Health Sciences classes online for Purdue Global University.
Donna-Jean Breckenridge lives with her family in a four-generation house in northern New Jersey. She comes from a rich legacy of pastors, evangelists, and missionaries, and takes seriously the verse, “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required.” She herself is a Bible college graduate, with a degree in Biblical Literature.
It was her desire to recreate the best parts of that childhood with her own children. When their oldest child was an infant, early in 1986, Donna-Jean read Susan Schaeffer Macaulay’s For the Children’s Sake and found that Charlotte Mason’s educational philosophy was the one she and her husband wanted for their home. She currently serves on the AmblesideOnline Advisory, teaches her beloved grandchildren, narrates books on Audible, and enjoys public speaking. She is also involved in church ministry, and she is actively pursuing several writing projects.
Mystie Winckler married her high school sweetheart, Matt, at nineteen; together they have five children, two of whom are now in college, but all of whom have been homeschooled from the beginning.
When she’s not teaching, checking work, or reading, Mystie publishes articles, podcast episodes, and videos on homemaking without overwhelm or perfectionism on her website, SimplyConvivial.com. Her community, Simply Convivial Continuing Education, is a treasure trove of mother-mentors engaged in the work at home to which they’ve been called.
Whether we’re talking about personal lives, homemaking duties, or homeschooling days, Mystie seeks to return to and live out the motto, Repent. Rejoice. Repeat.
Who I am &
what we will do?
Hi! I’m Cindy – an author, encourager, and a mom.
I homeschooled nine children for over 30 years using Charlotte Mason’s timeless ideas. As I gathered my family for Morning Time on a regular basis, I realized that the routine had become a regular practice & pattern that carried love and life to my children. The things I discovered in Morning Time were the very best things, and those things have proven to endure in their hearts as well as mine.
Over five weeks, we’ll build community together with Morning Time (a regular gathering focused on remembering – Scripture, songs, poetry, works of music, art & stories). As I like to say, community is something we build while we’re doing other things. While we’re doing the work of learning, growing & being a part of one another’s lives, a community grows with a shared common culture.
I hope that while we’re together we can see one another in different seasons of our lives, be an example to one another and help one another, hold one another as we adapt to change as women.
I look forward to a great time of discipleship with you this summer!
Passing the baton to the new generation of mothers is the heart of my work, with both The Literary Life Podcast and The NEW Mason Jar with Cindy Rollins.
I have authored also four books with the desire to encourage mothers.
