Have you wondered what the philosophy of the Lord’s paideia might look like when implemented and pursued in real Christian families in our own era and locale? Paideia Conversations is a casual podcast where Christian mamas from Paideia Northwest and Paideia Southeast dialogue about all things paideia: interviewing others, discussing books, sharing their own glimpses of practical paideia around the home. Currently shared only on Spotify while we stitch up a few loose seams by knotting off some lingering threads, please chime in with your own thoughts, suggestions, or experiences. The paideia of the Lord is such a gift, and there is so much freedom. Our intent here is to increase joy, offer encouragement, share resources, pursue wisdom. We are eager to explore the vast array of ideas here. To the Kingdom!
After much dizzying excitement and planning, it was really thrilling to reveal the announcement yesterday for our upcoming conference for moms, Courage for the Daily, which will feature Mystie Winckler, Adam Andrews, and Rachel Jankovic as keynote speakers. It will be an entire Saturday of filling up your vessel, focused on how we as moms need to embrace our callings with courage – educating, training, filling, loving the people God has put in our care.
If you don’t know Mystie Winckler, check out Schole Sisters and Simply Convivial to get a taste for her amazing intellect and knack for the orderly.
If you don’t know Adam Andrews, check out Center For Lit to glean from his score of helpful educational resources and godly insights.
If you don’t know Rachel Jankovic, check out Canon Press and their resources from Rachel through books and webinars.
The event will wrap up with a roundtable Q&A session, so all attendees will have the opportunity to have their own questions answered.
The event will also include a catered lunch, and I promise to have drinks & snacks for everyone as well.
The vision is not for moms to show up for a day of schoolwork, lectures, and taking chaotic notes. The vision is for moms to show up with friends & sisters (and to come prepared to meet new friends & add to your local tribe!) for a day that feels like a retreat as your vessel is filled up with joy, grace, and fellowship. The vision is for you to leave feeling confident and courageous for the work set before you, not because of what you learned at the conference but because of who you are in Christ.
Check it out, let us know you’re interested:
And stay tuned for registration to open soon.

regional vision? Inland vs. Pacific?
“True Christian education is not a negative thing; it is not a matter of isolating the student from the full scope of knowledge…
Rather it is giving him or her the framework or total truth, rooted in the Creator’s existence and in the Bible’s teaching, so that in each step of the formal learning process the student will understand what is true and what is false, and why it is true or false.”
Paideia Northwest is brand-new on the scene in the Pacific Northwest,
seeking to build bridges, encourage community, & create camaraderie
for regional Christian mamas
who are raising & educating their children in the
nurture, admonition, & wisdom of the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you are a Christian homeschooling mother,
or the Christian mom of kids in day schools or hybrids,
Paideia Northwest was created to serve you.
