I am a contributing editor to this magazine. I include it here because I
think that it is a very worthwhile publication (that is why I chose to be a part

Lesley Payne and Karen Horton, editors of the Catholic Home Educator magazine
since its founding in 1993, are proud to announce their new independent
magazine, Heart and Mind: A Resource for Catholic Homeschoolers.
We are joined by a team of contributing editors: Laura Berquist edits a
column on classical home education; Maureen Wittmann writes on thrifty
home-schooling and manages the special-needs column; Cay Gibson focuses on literature in
each issue; Nancy Carpentier Brown coordinates resource reviews and a column of
contributions from current and former homeschooling students. Each issue
features a pull-out unit study. The magazine focuses on issues unique to Catholic
homeschoolers, including resource reviews from a Catholic perspective,
religious education, tips for managing large families and ideas for observing the
liturgical year with children.
The magazine reflects our views as faithful Catholics and concerned
parent-educators. We love the Church, we love Catholic family life and we love home
education, in all of its varied manifestations—whether a purchased curriculum,
classical studies, Charlotte Mason, unschooling, unit studies, or the
all-encompassing “eclectic” approach. In fact, most of us have tried most of the above
methods and use a mixture of them, changing with each individual child and the
circumstances of each unique year of our homeschooling lives. Thus, the
magazine explores a broad selection of homeschooling methods and materials, leaving
it up to individual families to try what appeals to them and ignore the rest.
Likewise, we recognize that there are a variety of ways to express authentic
Catholic spirituality and we welcome contributions from people of different
No matter how long you’ve been homeschooling or what your family’s learning
style is, Heart and Mind is sure to be a valuable resource for you.
