Hi there,

fellow Mama!

Looking to create your own

Catholic Montessori Home?

Learn how in just 10 minutes a week ~

You want to raise your children with Catholic Montessori, but you can’t figure out how to put the theory into practice.

It’s hard to find reliable information.

You’re trying to get your children to behave without using bribes, rewards, or threats, but nothing is working.

You feel stuck and worn out.

This child raising business can be crazy frustrating and discouraging.  It can also leave you wondering . . .

"What am I doing wrong?"

You have a problem that most parents have –

Simply put . . . you’re focusing on the wrong things
in the wrong order.

Here’s the thing, though: it’s NOT your fault.

Your parents probably didn’t learn how to be great parents, so they couldn’t model those skills for you.

Now you’re ready to develop those skills for yourself.  And you want something that works.

Catholic Montessori child raising works.

An effective child raising method should:

“By their fruits,
you shall know them.”

– Matthew 7:16


your home as

calm, peaceful, joyful,

and yes - fun!

Your home = your favorite place to be in the world
Your family = the people you want to spend time with the most

You can make this happen:

  • Your children behave super  well – even when you aren’t around
  • They take no  for an answer as cheerfully as yes  – without whining!
  • People start asking you  for child raising advice

You Don't Have
to stumble forward alone

So who’s your

guide & Assistant

for this

amazing journey?

For the past 20 years, parents have been telling me stories about their children.

My children tell me, “Mom, people just tell you stuff!”  It’s true.  (When we meet, ask me what happened at Best Buy. 😊 )

. . .  I thought I was going to be a great mom.  After our first child was born, I realized that I didn’t know a whole lot.

When I found Catholic Montessori, I knew it was our child raising map.

Montessori’s Four Planes of Development Theory came to life before my eyes as our family grew.

I’ve been where you are.  I understand what you’re going through, and I have the know-how, experience, and desire to get you unstuck in your child raising.  Why?  Because I’ve been raising our sons and daughters, Catholic Montessori style, for 20 years.  Someone pointed out that

My children are my resume.

Even though I’ve listened to many different people through the years, I keep hearing the same stories over and over.

That’s because human nature doesn’t change.  The God-given nature of children does. not. change.

And that’s why you CAN create your own Catholic Montessori home.

After you get child raising right, your life will be more joyful than you’ve ever imagined possible.

Are you ready?


Here's the Truth ~

. . . you actually don’t need my help.

With enough time and effort, you could figure this out on your own.

But Here's the Problem ~

Time is not on your side.

Your children won’t stop growing
while you’re figuring things out.

What really happens inside The Hamlet?

Information becomes inspiration,
and inspiration sparks action.

A word of gentle caution about child raising with Catholic Montessori:

If you're looking for a quick fix,
this is not for you.

The Hamlet is designed for moms who want to support their child’s development from 0-24 in a Catholic Montessori framework.  Success requires an open heart and a marathon mind.

Please understand – I love little people, and babies thrill my heart.  💕  🥰  💕 

But I can’t help you if you don’t practice what you learn.

The Hamlet is about taking your burning desire to become a Catholic Montessori mom and hitting the accelerator.

As a Hamleteer, you’ll:

This all starts with you.

You may be asking . . .

Catholic Montessori is Montessori as Maria Montessori herself told us.  That’s why any approach to Montessori that leaves out her Catholic worldview and the Catholic element is incomplete.

“There is a striking resemblance between the method of the Montessori school and the method of the Catholic Church, in the manner in which both institutions adapt themselves, in practice, to the psychological nature of man” (Montessori, The Child in the Church, 1930, p. 144, emphasis original).

Speaking of visiting priests, she noted, “Although these Fathers neither knew me, nor knew that I was a Catholic, and, although in my book, I made no direct profession of religious faith, it seemed to them that in its very substance my method was Catholic. . . . [Principles of my method] all were pedagogical principles which seemed to [the priests] to emanate from, and to be directly inspired by Catholicism” (ibid., p. 2, emphasis mine).

If you can, please let me know!

I couldn’t find practical, comprehensive information on Catholic Montessori child raising on the web, so I created these Courses and this Community to pass on what I’ve learned.

You absolutely can read Maria Montessori yourself.  And at some point in your child raising journey, you’ll probably want to.  (Just be sure you’re reading a faithful translation.)  

And you certainly don’t need to join The Hamlet.  Like I said above, with enough time and effort, you could figure out Catholic Montessori child raising on your own.

The value of The Hamlet is:

  • saving time.  You only need to commit to 10 minutes a week.  The Courses offer Montessori summaries in various formats (reading, listening, graphics).  I read Montessori so that you don’t have to.
  • hearing stories from the trenches of life in a Catholic Montessori home.  You’ll hear about reality, not just theory.
  • having someone to ask questions.  Books can’t answer you . . .
  • reaching a community of Catholic Montessori parents.  It’s hard to use CM child raising when you don’t know anyone doing the same.  Being connected to parents like yourself makes it easier.

Most of the Montessori information on the Internet:

  • does not respect or even reflect Montessori’s Catholic worldview and can even be in direct conflict with our Catholic Faith
  • is often given by moms who have 1 or 2 children still in the First Plane
  • focuses on the physical Prepared Environment of the First Plane child or on secular Montessori pedagogy

The Hamlet is different because it:

  • is decisively and unashamedly Catholic and  Montessori
  • is from a now-homeschooling mom who helped found a Catholic Montessori parochial school, with sons and daughters – equal to the choirs of angels – of all Four Temperaments, with a few already in the Fourth Plane
  • focuses on the practical aspect of Catholic Montessori child raising and character formation.  While I do address the Prepared Environment and homeschooling with my Hamleteers, these topics are approached within – and not apart from – the overall context of child raising.

I do my best to share with you my know-how and experience.  But I can’t presume to guarantee your success.  At the end of the day, your success will come from the effort you put into this.

You’ll have everything you need with:

  • the desire and an open mind to learn Catholic Montessori
  • the will and stamina to practice what you learn
  • the patience to work toward and wait for lasting results

Whenever you’re ready to commit.

And if you’re really  asking my opinion, I’d echo the saying, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.  The second best time is now.”

Any parent looking for a quick fix or unwilling to try a very different way of child raising is not a good fit.

Also, a Hamleteer should want to take action.  The focus of The Hamlet is on < 1% learning, and 99+% doing *.  The main purpose of the Courses are to give you practical ways to use  Catholic Montessori theory in your child raising.

* For my fellow math-lovers: there are 10,080 minutes per week.  If you study a lesson per week for 10 minutes (at most), you are spending 0.0992% of your week learning.  😊

This membership level is designed for you if:

  • you want more information on how to better apply Catholic Montessori in your home and
  • you don’t need extra support because you’re already part of a local Catholic Montessori community (Atrium or school)
  • or, you like independent learning at your own pace and don’t need any extra support

This membership level is designed for you if:

  • you aren’t already part of a local Catholic Montessori community
  • or, you are part of a local community and want to expand your Catholic Montessori circle further
  • you’d like extra support and resources

Child raising is hard enough.  And when you’re taking a different path, it can be even harder.

The Hamlet Community exists so I can provide you with general support in your child raising journey, as well as help you connect with other Catholic Montessori parents.

The Courses and Community are easy to navigate by clicking to browse around.
