North Dallas Charlotte Mason Gathering

We are a monthly reading group that provides for parents and educators support for continuing education in the philosophy of Charlotte Mason.

"But we hold that all education is divine, that every good gift of knowledge and insight comes from above. that the Lord the Holy Spirit is the supreme educator of mankind, and that the culmination of all education (which may, at the same time, be reached by a little child), is that personal knowledge of and intimacy with God in which our being finds its fullest perfection." Vol 3, pg. 95
