Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit is a short meditation on what it means to homeschool with a meek and quiet spirit. It encourages the reader to put off sinful attitudes such as anger and discontent and put on gratefulness and contentment. I think the biggest revelation to me was that the definition of "meek" is not shy, retiring, or bashful, rather the meek person is mild of temper and not easily provoked or irritated. I'm pretty easily provoked or irritated, so some of the encouragement here was helpful, although I don't think she attacked my biggest areas of sin (pride! and everything should be perfectly done my way!) and her chapters always left me a little wanting.
I'm a little wary of the Maxwells in general, although I really like Managers of the Homes (with qualifiers) and would like to set up Managers of their Chores. I'm glad I borrowed this to read (thanks, Heather!), it was worth the investment of my time, especially the beginning and ending chapters (and there were some helpful ideas in the middle too).
