Moms, this challenge is for you! Give yourself this gift this year. Just 15 minutes a day reading through the Harvard Classics. Charles Eliot, the president of Harvard from 1869-1909 told a farmer's grange: "In my opinion, a five-foot bookshelf would hold books enough to give a liberal education to anyone who would read them with devotion, even if he could spar but 15 minutes a day for reading." Note: Liberal in this case is not about the political left, it is about a generous broad education.
We provide the links to the readings, so you do not have to buy the set to participate!
It is said, "What is down in the well, comes up in the bucket." Moms, what is down in your well? Will your family find invigorating and thirst quenching refreshment? Or will they find the well dry or stagnating?
Readers are leaders! Mothers lead their children, so mothers are leaders. Where are you leading your children?
With homeschooling, running a home, and some of you also are running a home business, where do you find the time to read? Just 15 minutes a day can make a huge difference! Most of us can find 15 minutes. In a week, a mom can read one hour and 45 minutes in just 15 minutes a day. I am not a fast reader. So, for me this works out to be about 6 pages a day. This adds up. Read and ponder what you read. Share what you are learning with your family. Share on our Mentoring Our Own Facebook group what you have gleaned from the day's reading.
If you cannot read the whole reading in 15 minutes, don't worry. Read what you can and share what you learn. If you are not ready for the Harvard classics yet, no worries. Just choose to read something else and share one thing you learn.
I suggest you do Your 15 Minute Scholar Readings after reading in God's Word each day. After you read each day, ponder and reflect on what you have read. Some time during the day, take a moment and write one thing you learned.
Consider becoming a 15 minute scholar! Join our Facebook group and take the "15 Minute Scholar 2018 Challenge." You will find a link to the "Reading Guide" on our Facebook group. The reading guide has links to each day's reading, so you can participate even if you do not own the Harvard Classics. Your reading is just a click away! Moms, do it for you and for your family. This is doable. Join us!!!!
Just click the orange link below, join our Facebook group and participate in the "15 Minute Scholar 2018 Reading Challenge!" You will be glad you did. There is no cost for you to join in January.
