America’s Story 1 samples!

It is with great excitement that I am sharing this sample of the ALL NEW Master Books Editions of America’s Story 1 – the first volume of my history series, A Living History of Our World to be updated. America’s Story 1 is due for release this month!

What has stayed the same?  You will find all of the same content – the same friendly narrative of history, the same narration prompts, and the same gentle approach to teaching and learning history, in the same format with a story-text book and a student journal. 

What is ALL NEW? You will find all new graphics and these added elements: additional teaching resources, materials lists, mapping adventures and feature focuses in each chapter, and a MUCH expanded student journal featuring more hands-on fun, geography connections, vocabulary building exercises, drawing, and of course the incredible 180 day schedule that makes Master Books curriculum so easy to implement!

Upcoming trip…

Hey, everyone, I want everyone to know that I am heading up to Alaska to visit my family up there. I will be gone until the beginning of August. Since there is not very good reception up there, I will not be available as much as usual. I will try to find some wifi to hop on sometime in the middle of the week. If I can, I will post some pictures!

Part 4: doable resources for peace and sanity

Procrastination, laziness, anxiety, insecurity, fear, perfectionism, inability to focus, major lack of diligence. I think we all have dealt with at least some of these tendencies at one time or another.

I know that I sure have. In fact, some of these weaknesses became a major life pattern – a train track that was leading me to nowhere, or at least nowhere good.

A new endeavor…

I just submitted my first podcast to the iTunes store! (I’ll keep everyone updated when it’s available.) I have to admit, I’m kind of nervous about this, but I also know that it’s something God has been asking me to step out and do.

My first episode is an introduction to who I am, what I do, and the methods I use in my parenting, teaching, and writing. This first podcast is the beginning of a series, titled “Where the Rubber Meets the Road,” which I will be releasing over the next few weeks.

Here are some of the other topics I will be talking about in this series:

Being my child’s ally

Don’t wander in the desert called burn-out!

Living and loving through having a prodigal
