Episode 126: Victorian Novels—Their Delights and Lessons!

May 25, 2022

If you’re like my family, it’s the classic novels that have really satisfied our need for rewarding and uplifting reading. Author, instructor, and homeschooling mom, Eleanor Nicholson, is here to share about the richness of Victorian Novels—their delights and lessons!

Eleanor’s courses for your children:

Eleanor's notes/reading recommendations: 
G. K. Chesterton's The Victorian Age in Literature, C. S. Lewis' An Experiment in Criticism, and Joseph Pearce's Literature: What Every Catholic Should Know. 

For Nineteenth-century authors/books: All of the novels of Jane Austen (who isn't Victorian), most of the novels of Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins' The Woman in White, Anthony Trollope's Barchester Towers (though really it would be valuable to read all of the Barsetshire Chronicles), and Bram Stoker's Dracula. Tennyson, Hopkins, and Thompson for poetry.

May 11, 2022

Homeschoolers work very hard to raise their children to a virtuous, faith-filled adulthood, to be lights on a lampstand, and witnesses to the saving love of Christ. But how do we arm them to respond to tough questions about why their Catholicism is essential to their relationship with Jesus Christ? I’m so excited, today, to welcome John Martignoni, to talk about: Blue Collar Apologetics: A Simple, Common Sense Approach.
