GOAT #42: Jamie Erickson on Holy Hygge and Homeschooling

GOAT #42: Jamie Erickson on Holy Hygge and Homeschooling

Are you longing for a peaceful homeschool, wanting to rid your home of the chaos and clatter? Atmosphere has little to do with how you decorate ... and more about creating tranquility that is welcoming to our family and visitors alike.  We can foster this kind of "sanctuary living" in an imperfect world by adapting hygge (the Danish quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that results in a feeling of contentment or well-being) to Christian living.

Listen today as Jamie Erickson, podcast host of The Mom to Mom podcast, blogger at The Unlikely Homeschool and author of "Holy Hygge: Creating a Place for People to Gather and the Gospel to Grow" shares wisdom on how we can use the seven tenets of hygge to create sanctuary-like homes that mirror and reflect the perfection that we see in the Garden and then later also in the life of Jesus.

I'm a wife to my "Mr. Right". A momma of five. A maker of slow food and simple living. A collector of memories, a keeper of books, and a champion for books that make memories. An addict who likes my half-and-half with a splash of coffee. A fractured pot transformed by the One Who makes broken things beautiful. I heart homeschooling, brake for libraries, and am glad you're here with me on the journey!
