C.S. Lewis copywork selection

I was just reminded all over again this morning how much I love C.S. Lewis, with Ella's copywork selection today:

"I was the lion."
And as Shasta gaped with open mouth and said nothing, the Voice continued.
"I was the lion who forced you to join Aravis. I was the cat who comforted you among the houses of the dead. I was the lion who drove the jackals from you while you slept. I was the lion who gave the horses the new strength of fear for the last mile so that you could reach King Lune in time. And I was the lion you do not remember who pushed the boat in which you lay, a child near death, so that it came to shore where a man sat, wakeful at midnight, to receive you."

~The Horse and His Boy, C.S. Lewis

And now I'm off to help my 3-year-old control her temper and talk with my 6-year-old boy, who is sitting on his bed on a timeout, right after I check in with Ella to make sure she is doing okay as she does school at the table. (The other two are contentedly being buddies. :)) Thank you, Jesus, for the gift of motherhood. Now, please HELP me! :)


  1. Yes, help us all, sweet Jesus! You do such a great job, Stacy!

    What a great quote! I'm loving this post, because I just made copywork assignments for Jack this week, and my two C.S. Lewis quotes are my favorites. If memory serves they're...

    Wrong will be right
    When Aslan comes in sight.

    "It is he, not you, who will save Mr. Tumnus."

    I enjoy C.S. Lewis so much!

  2. What????

    Nobody else commented on this? I LOVE Mr. Lewis as well, because of quotes like this. Thanks for taking joy in the things you teach. You are a great teacher (and mommy).


Thank you for commenting! I love hearing from you, and I will do
my best to reply back to you in the comment section.
