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.
Homeschooling can be easier than you think!
Mid-March, I’m launching curriculum updates to make your life that much easier! Join our waiting list for updates on our upcoming launch and get a FREE Charlotte Mason beginner ecourse.
You & Your Children Will Love Learning Again
A Gentle Feast brings your family together as much as possible while still providing grade-appropriate material.
Charlotte Mason Inspired
This curriculum is a feast of living ideas founded on Miss Charlotte Mason’s philosophy and principles.
A Living Approach
This curriculum is deeply rooted in the living ideas found in books, beauty and Biblical truth. It is gentle to both mom and child, while providing a firm academic foundation.
Coming Mid-March: An Updated Curriculum
Did you ever buy a teacher’s manual or online lesson plans, then come Monday have NO idea what you were actually supposed to be doing with your children?
That won’t happen with A Gentle Feast. Our curriculum includes a beautiful color teacher’s manual and online plans, but it has so much more:
- 5-day Introduction Course (where I walk you through the entire curriculum)
- Lesson plans that can be edited your individual family needs
- Subject by Subject explanations
- Daily schedules
- Online links and MORE resources
- Foreign Language lesson plans
- Members only Q and A calls
- Super Supportive Members Only Facebook Group
Coming Mid-March: Customize With Optional Elements

Teacher’s Manual: Your mornings will open and go with this beautiful packet full of the morning time plans, poems, pictures, and hymns.
Student Pages: Lovely Black and White line-drawn pages for your child to have in a Morning Time Binder or Menu, putting everything they need right at their fingertips.

“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
Introducing A Four Year Cycle, Coming Mid-March!
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.
Learn more about how to select a cycle to start with.
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).
Learn how grade groups helps parents and children.
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!!
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!
