Catholic Homeschooling Magazine

Have you all seen mater et magistra yet? It is absolutely gorgeous.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about, it is the new Catholic homeschooling magazine. Margot Davidson of Hillside Education took over the ever struggling Heart and Mind and pumped a whole lot of life into it. Margot has been in the publishing biz a while now and really knows her stuff. Not only is the cover art and layout beautiful, but the content topnotch.

This is a great magazine and so nice to have a Catholic voice for living, loving and learning in the home!

I'm doing the handcrafts part of the magazine so if you have any great ideas or questions you'd like covered over the next few issues ... just let me know!

It *is* a beautiful magazine. Also, very practical and helpful. Also informational and prayerful.

I do think it is everything a Catholic homeschooling parent would like to have in a magazine, and if not, suggestions are surely welcome. Its biggest criticism is that it is only a quarterly at this point.

If you haven't yet subscribed, I suggest trying it. I think you will like it.

Beautiful magazine with fascinating stories and wonderful advice on how to love and teach our children. I'm going to order it and I'm not even Catholic. Thanks, Maureen!:-)

I would like to know more about it.
As for only being quarterly, I don't think I will be able to keep up with a more frequent periodical.

I am so thrilled with the revived version of heart and mind. It has been such a great resource to me in my homeschooling.

All the best,

How about something on Science. There is so much dicussion out there about Church teaching on Evolution vs Creationism. And no real Catholic Science books for upper grades. Can you cover something like this in one of the issues?? And recommend reading that are true to Holy Mother Church not just someones opinion?
