From the Abbey is a Catholic educational apostolate. My name is Jeff Arrowood, and my mission is to promote Catholic literacy and to help adults become self-directed learners in their Catholic faith. This website, www.fromtheabbey.com, is dedicated to one facet of this work - a Catholic learning system that teaches the faith while at the same time teaching you how to learn.

In particular, this page has activities for those who learn best through action and have a kinesthetic or experiential learning style.
