Featured Our Philosophy
Everything inside of CenterForLit membership is intentionally designed to fulfill one of our three foundational purposes:
- To equip parents and teachers with the tools they need to feel confident in their ability to lead students into a love and understanding of literature. We already believe you are capable and that God has given you exactly what you need for your task. However, the confidence provided by continued personal training can fill us with peace and rest as we stand before our students.
- To lighten the burden of a busy teacher or homeschooling parent by providing teaching resources for literary study. Even if you know the method inside and out, sometimes we just need to hold each other's hands up during these crazy days.
- To provide an oasis of grace for all teachers, parents, and readers. There are so many standards to live up to, so many laws to keep. So often we retreat into our loneliness or put up a pretense of success. There's no need for that here. If there's any theme that is more prominent than any others throughout the Great Books, it is the strength that comes from a community founded on common weakness and failure. By reading and talking together about books, our schools, or even the everyday chaos, may we find that true friendship described by C.S. Lewis: "What? You too? I thought I was the only one!"
When you go to sleep worrying, or wake up anxious about your performance for the day, remember that you are God's beloved and He's got this. There's way less riding on it than it seems.
All our love, The Andrews
