Welcome to The Classical Homeschool Podcast. At the Classical Homeschool Podcast, our heart is to take on the work of wrestling through the, sometimes difficult and philosophical, ideas presented throughout the classical education movement and bring them down to earth, specifically and practically for the classical homeschooling mom.
In our first episode, we unpack and explain what this podcast is all about and what you can expect. We spend some time talking about what we mean by Christian classical and modern homeschool. In addition, you get a chance to meet our hosts Ashley Woleben and Jennifer Dow and hear the story of how this podcast became a reality
Ashley tells her story of how she went from Anthropology major and PhD candidate to classically homeschooling her kids. Jennifer shares her journey from career driven mom, to life altering house fire, to the start of her family’s classical homeschool.
Lastly, you get to hear the rundown of what we will be talking about on the podcast, where we get our inspiration, and what you can expect throughout the life of The Classical Homeschool Podcast. Enjoy the show!
“Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23 ESV
