Sabbath Rest Retreat Center
Are you in need of a true Sabbath Rest?
Carole has been beautifully ministered to by times of solitude throughout the years.
She believes that creating a silent and sacred space for people to connect with God and their true self is needed. Because of this, Carole has purchased a large home in the beautiful historic town of Guthrie, OK and is creating a silent retreat center adjoining her home.

Thousands of families across the U.S. can attest to the power of her thoughtful, literature-based approach to life and learning.
YOU TOOK AWAY SO MUCH OF MY WORRY
"Before going to your seminar, I had been struggling with my unconventional homeschool methods. Little to no screen time, tons of reading and a lot of student led learning. I worried my girls needed a tutorial, more socialization, or more structure. I couldn’t believe your seminar. All my fears were laid to rest. I went home and said we weren’t doing formal math til seventh grade, and my girls cheered. Of course they do math in so many ways, but they would dread the online math I had made them start that year every single day. We added in the quiet hour and it has changed our family dynamic. What a gift. My husband read aloud to them every night already, and you made me see what a gift that truly is! All of these things were so wonderful, but the most important change came in my perspective. Instead of seeing my kids reading and constantly questioning if I need to interrupt them and teach them something... I see them reading and I feel such JOY that THIS is them learning. You changed my perspective, and in doing so you took away so much of my worry that what we were doing wasn’t enough."
