Word of Life Devotions Review

Hi everyone! I’ve had several requests to do a review of the Word of Life Devotions that we started using last year. I really like these devotions, they’re fairly short and easy for my kids to complete. And their a great way to get them in the habit of getting into God’s Word on a daily basis. They did update their covers from the ones I have, but the Quiet Time Devotions are what we used.   Watch Tip Tuesday: Word of Life Quiet Times Review   Overall Thoughts: I want to mention that these devotions are not super in depth studies, they only take about 10-15 minutes each day to complete. Each day they have a reading assignment which is shorter for younger students and then longer for older students. The reading assignment is followed up by a few questions that relate directly to the chapters themselves. Then there are always a couple of follow up questions that relate the reading to your students everyday life. Then they end with a short time praying … [Read more...]

Christmas Extravaganza Day 12: Who is God?

Welcome to day 12 of my Christmas Extravaganza! Today I have an awesome prize to giveaway to one of you! Today I’m giving away something not only PERFECT for this season, but for every other day of the year too! It’s the Apologia: Who is God from the What We Believe series. I’ve always loved the Apologia company, and what they stand for. They offer a wide variety of curriculum to help grow your homeschool! And they’ve recently come out with a complete Biblical Worldview Curriculum. Now hopefully the term “worldview” doesn’t scare you away. Here’s a special note from Apologia regarding their curriculum: Our children are bombarded on a daily basis with competing messages. Every song, movie, book, TV show, blog, and game is full of ideas—ideas about truth, morality, beauty, identity, faith, and more. Not all of these ideas are true. Some are wrong, some are deceptive, and some are outright destructive. It is more important than ever that young children be equipped to discern … [Read more...]

Grapevine Bible Study Tracing Pages

They’ve done it again! Grapevine has come up with an awesome new version of their Esther Study! As you all know the Teeny Tot likes to get involved in whatever we are doing, so the new grapevine traceable study sheets are a perfect addition for her! As you can see above the student workbook comes with very light gray marks to help younger students draw the images. I have to say that the Teeny Tot is absolutely LOVES these pages. She’s so excited to be able to do the study along with us and have her own binder. I used the regular blank version for my older students so they can draw their own pictures. I think it will depend on your child’s age and skill level as to which you will want. We always use the multi-level units since I have four different grade levels. What’s Esther all about? Travel back in time with your children and teens as they study the book of Esther. Bible students will begin their in the ancient Persian Empire, as King Ahasuersus banishes Queen Vashti and … [Read more...]
