Nancy Kelly

Nancy Kelly lives in a little town on the prairie called Windom, Minnesota. She and her husband Kent have home-educated their six children for over 24 years using the principles and practices of Charlotte Mason. Nancy has helped build a thriving educational community in southwest Minnesota that continues to learn and grow.  She helps administrate the Parents’ Midwest Educational Union (PMEU), a parents’ book discussion group; Truth, Beauty, Goodness (TBG), a student learning cooperative; and the Living Education Retreat, now in its 14th year of sharing and spreading the ideas of Charlotte Mason. Speaking, consulting, and mentoring are three of her favorite things to do. A trip with Kent and dear friends to Ambleside, England in 2014 forever changed her understanding of Mason’s teacher training and deepened her love for Mason’s relational philosophy.  She writes at her CM-inspired blog, Sage Parnassus and has encouraged hundreds of mothers through her group mentoring classes, Living Education Lessons. She enjoys family, bright eyes, flower gardening, collecting vintage honeypots, exploring the flora and fauna of new places, and of course, books!
