Teaching Truth, Goodness, and Beauty by Jennifer Courtney
Are you frustrated by textspeak because it’s destroying the beauty of our language? Do you look wistfully at old buildings and wish modern architecture weren’t so ugly? Are you concerned about raising children who recognize and speak Truth in an era of relativism? Do you want to teach your children the difference between values and virtues so that they can pursue goodness? In this workshop, we will examine how you can train your children to recognize truth, goodness, and beauty and to hunger after them. We will examine older models of education which focused on these three ideals.
