A Gentle Feast

Smooth and Easy Days Are Closer Than You think!

Hey, I’m Julie.

I’ve Been There Too.

Putting together lesson plans, finding material, getting the whole family involved…

I looked for support, but nothing seemed to work.

As a professional educator, I decided to do something.

Smooth and Easy Days Are Closer Than You think!

A Gentle Feast was the answer to all of our homeschool needs. Having everything already laid out for me has been a game changer.” – M. Crain

A Four Year Cycle

Parents and children love the Charlotte Mason approach to history–a cycle based on a four year history rotation. All children learn about similar periods together, with depth appropriate for their age. Learn more about how Charlotte Mason scheduled History.

Cycle 1 – Columbus, Conquests, and Colonies

Cycle 2 – Wars, Whigs, and Washington

Cycle 3 – Reforms, Revolutions, and Reconstruction

Cycle 4 – Marvels, Machines, and Modern Times

We recommend starting with cycle one, but you can select any cycle based on the period of history that’s right for your family.

Age Appropriate Structure

Similar to Charlotte Mason’s method, A Gentle Feast divides the curriculum by grade ranges instead of individual grades.

We group lessons by Lower Elementary (grades 1-3), Upper Elementary (grades 4-6), Junior High (grades 7-9), and Senior High (grades 10-12).

Homeschool Success

Dear Parent,

I created A Gentle Feast because it is what I wish I had when I first started homeschooling. I was overwhelmed with the different curriculum options. I longed for a guide that would show me how to create a homeschool rooted in Charlotte Mason’s methods and philosophies that was user friendly and family centered. I realized that homeschool is very different from teaching in the classroom.

I couldn’t find anything that fit my family and ended up spending hours trying to piecemeal a plan together. I had three kids under the age of three while trying to homeschool two elementary children, and it was all too much. I ended up quickly burning out.

As a professional educator, I’ve worked with hundreds of students and parents over the past 20 years. So, since a solution didn’t exist, I decided to develop it myself.  I wanted to provide parents with the tools and resources needed to provide a rich and abundant educational feast full of books, beauty, and Biblical truth.

I wish I’d had a guide like this to get started. Following A Gentle Feast has breathed life and beauty into our homeschool. It has been a night and day difference. I pray it will do so for your family as well, however you may choose to implement it.

I can’t rave enough about A Gentle Feast. For 5 years I have been hodge-podging our curriculum. I lacked a rythmn and reason. A Gentle Feast was our answer, the material flows so nicely together. Giving us reflection and time for things to soak in.  Thank you Julie!!

Customer L.

A Gentle Feast has been like a big breath of fresh air. As a homeschool mom in my 18th year, I’ve almost tried it all.  My kids are happy, and I am relieved. It’s been the best thing I’ve done in our homeschool in at least 10 years. Thank you so much!

We have been using A Gentle Feast Morning Time packet this year and love it! Without my having to select & find resources on my own, this schedule has brought a much-needed sense of order to our mornings and a foundation of truth & beauty to our days!
