    Some of the highlights of this original Busy Bible are lifting the numbered flaps of the earth to see each day's creations, Joseph's coat of many colors, helping Ruth gather grain, unzipping the great fish to find Jonah, setting up a nativity scene, and playing the Good Samaritan. When children are finished playing, they can Velcro the book shut and place it back in its clear carrying case, which features a snap close and a handle for easy transport.

    This Bible story collection follows an extremely traditional and beautiful design externally: a distinctive, oversized, cloth-covered hardbound text with copper illumination. Well written key stories are relayed: 34 from the Old Testament and 34 from the New. I appreciate the depth of story communicated and the conversational, yet engaging tone. With Usborne, one might expect busy, brightly colored illustrations within the text. These, however, are muted water color and colored pencil and enhance the story rather than emphasize themselves. The gentle-colored, textured-looking pages also accentuate the story. Although aimed as a read-aloud for younger children, your upper elementary child will also enjoy reading these. A two-page illustrated map follows each Testament and 9 pages of alphabetized Who’s Who help identify main characters. A beautiful and meaningful keepsake! 191 pp, 8.5” x 11” hc. ~ Ruth

     This felt like a book of reminders to do those things we often forget to do with/for our children because we get too busy with life: slow down, pay attention, remember that your word choices matter, look for the positive, and get to know your kids as individuals. We can all use some perspective and encouragement from time to time. Dr. Todd Cartmell gives real life examples, of the good and bad, in 5 short chapters – because parents get busy! Take a little time for yourself and read something that will benefit everyone in the house. You can even take an online assessment to see areas where you can make improvement. Hearts at Home, Moody Publishers, sc, 200 pp ~ Sara

      Rather than a list of 200+ questions (as one pastor employed to grill young men who were interested in courting his daughters), this is an approach that keeps in mind that the goal is mature young men and women who make godly decisions. At its foundation is a loving father-daughter relationship. Secondary is the building of a solid relationship with the young man who is interested in the daughter. Being careful to define “purity” and “innocence” so father, daughter, and young man are all on the same page, the author is also careful to encourage accountability. A quick and easy read (for busy fathers), this book goes carefully over the basic issues ending with a checklist of important points and a sample conversation between the father and a young man. 82 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    What does a marriage need to stay on a firm foundation? I'm hesitant to start listing things, lest we become discouraged – where does one stop! The modern family is already so busy, and when you throw homeschooling and young children into the mix, it doesn't take long to reach the brink of uncontrolled mayhem! But Jim and Cathy Burns have boiled the challenge down to its basic elements. What is the goal? To be closer. To grow closer spiritually and emotionally. To connect with your spouse. This is a collection of 52 devotionals written specifically for busy couples. They are not long, they are not complicated – they simply encourage you to draw closer through faith conversations, one little chapter at a time. 222 pgs, pb. – Zach

    This 27-page coloring book is made of thick white paper perfect for young children who easily rip flimsier newsprint pages by mistake. Thicker paper also ensures that pens and markers won't bleed through as much. Each page includes a large illustration and a verse from scripture or another spiritual poem, quote, or prayer. This coloring book would be perfect for keeping young children busy and quiet while still encouraging their spiritual growth during a long church sermon or on car trips. You could also use this to aid in scripture memorization as a kind of "Verse-Of-the-Day." ~ Rachel D.

    Why not? Why not continue to teach spelling and vocabulary in high school? Just because most spelling programs end in either the 6th or 8th grade doesn't mean it's a good idea. This is the perfect program for a high schooler, allowing the student to combine spelling/vocabulary with particular subjects that are being studied. In the same manner as its younger sister, Phonetic Zoo, the program uses auditory input with frequency to achieve mastery. The newly revised (and lower-priced!) set includes two CD-ROMs which contain nine sets of MP3 audio vocabulary lessons and PDF booklets. Lesson sets follow specific subject topics including: Art & Architecture, Bible & Theology, Business & Economics, Government & Law, Greek & Latin Word Roots, Health & Science, Literature, Music and SAT/ACT. Each lesson features 24 words. Each word is pronounced, used in a sentence, and pronounced again, leaving time for the student to write the word. Later, the student checks his spelling as the word is spelled and the definition given on the CD. After each set of eight words, a short subject-related poem is inserted for the listener's relaxation. The student is expected to go through a lesson once each day until he can spell all its words perfectly. ~ Janice

       This inspiring autobiography of RG LeTourneau who called himself “God’s businessman,” propels you along—as I imagine RG did in his conversations and life. God gifted him with inventive genius, an enterprising spirit and salvation, and in response RG dedicated his business, his money, and his life to God. Today thousands have been impacted for the Kingdom through the dedication, determination and decisions of LeTourneau, “just a mechanic whom the Lord has blessed.” A literature component of Notgrass Exploring Economics course. 4 1/4x7”, 296pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Subtitled Biblical History for the Busy Christian, this 156 page book, written by John Shahan, MD, a practicing radiologist who also spends considerable time as a medical missionary in Central America, is not able to deliver fully on the title's promise. It took a lot more than one hour to get through the book as there's just too much material to cover, even condensed as it is. Aside from that, it does cover all the major events of the Old Testament from a historical perspective, acknowledging that the earliest part of the Bible has no other recorded documentation to substantiate it and is accepted on faith by Jews and Christians.

    The first four chapters cover the Old Testament, followed by a chapter covering the Greek and Roman historical influence, especially the major Greek philosophers and the military expansion of the Roman Empire. An epilogue and appendices round out the book. Though obviously not a theologian, Dr. Shahan does manage to go somewhat under the surface of the stories in an attempt to tie this ancient lore to present day points of view. ~ Tom

    The Book of Proverbs was given as an instruction manual in daily living. As such, it's the obvious place to look for wisdom – the wisdom needed by all parents for bringing their children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. As a devotional, this book will give you a daily dose of wisdom from Proverbs; a dose that is exactly what a busy lifestyle can manage and assimilate. Verse by verse through Proverbs for 180 days, you'll find practical instruction in watching our words, knowing our children, judging others, discernment, self-control, showing respect, and so many other pertinent and important topics. Take this small nugget of time each day to meditate on God's Word and apply it to the situations which swirl around you daily. 180 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    Not long ago I joked about founding ACLAH – a support group for moms whose Adult Children are Living at Home. That's because I'm in the fall season of my life – that precious, and undoubtedly too-short – time when my children are adults but not totally gone from our home. As my joke implies, there are challenges in this time period – but then there are challenges at all the others, too. I remember being a mother of three young children and wondering how to get everything done without a good night's sleep. I remember the busy, busy homeschooling days. Sally Clarkson also knows those challenges intimately. And by sharing her thoughts and heart about each "season of a mother's heart" she helps us to recognize both our own hearts and to deepen our dependence on God. This book was first written over a decade ago when Sally was just beginning to realize that homeschooling moms need to be affirmed in their decision to homeschool and to be validated in the curious lifestyle they have chosen. Now, revisiting the book, she's wiser, more experienced, just as perceptive, and still committed to bringing encouragement to homeschooling moms. I think you'll want to take this book in small doses – savoring each page as the heart-felt sharing of a good friend. ~ Janice

    This hefty high school curriculum, newly revised in 2016, was designed to train girls to become godly women, based on Proverbs 31:10-31. The goal of the curriculum is to help Christian girls develop their skills and abilities for optimal service to the Lord within the family setting: a preparation for all the duties of an adult life. The guide's beginning elaborates on the program's philosophies and then discusses four learning styles as well as the Six R's of education (adds Research, Responsibility and Righteousness to the traditional three). The author assumes that students have a good basic mastery of Math and English grammar, as well as a good reading ability. In addition, these courses are written for mature young people., there are reproducible forms for planning and record keeping. (It is highly recommended that your daughter plan or at least help to plan her own lessons.) The forms included are a Goal Planning Checklist, High-School report Card, Lesson Planning Sheet, and a High School Cumulative Record Card. (This sheet will become the high school transcript for any student wishing to proceed on to college.) The curriculum guide is broken up into 20 different units (10 in Volume 1 and 10 in Volume 2). Each unit focuses on a different verse or verse group from Proverbs 31. Then, this unit is broken down into thematic mini units. Subjects covered are Bible and Christian Character, Cultural Studies, Reading and Literature, Composition, Math and Personal Finance, Science, Health and Physical Fitness, Practical Arts, and Decorative and Performing Arts. In each subject area within a unit, this curriculum guide gives a list of lessons for girls to choose from and complete. Since activities are provided for the four learning styles, there are more activities in the guide than can be completed in 4 years. The materials are written directly to the students, as they are encouraged to take responsibility for their own education. Each lesson assigns suggested point value (largely based on Carnegie units), so when an activity is completed you can easily total the points and convert them into High School credits. The guide also provides detailed instructions about how best to use the program, lists essential materials for the course, and recommends supplementary courses. Essential materials for the course are a Bible, concordance, dictionary, encyclopedia, hymnbooks, an English grammar book, and a writing style book). The list of strongly suggested materials is more extensive. Far Above Rubies was created to stand on its own, although the lessons call for reading and using a number of other books, such as Writer's Inc., the Kingfisher History Encyclopedia, Understanding the Times, and more. At the end of each volume, there is an updated, detailed list of recommended resources (and corresponding Web locations for more information), many of which we also offer in our catalog. Also included for each volume are some cross-reference guides to help you locate specific lessons based on chronology or theme and a "25 Ways to Have Fun with Book Reports" chart. Please note that although the guide self-proclaims that it is not necessarily against college and career goals for young ladies, they admit that this is not the primary aim of this guide. Consequently, if your daughter plans on attending college or becoming a career woman, you will need to supplement her curriculum with some college-preparatory math and science (specific suggestions are offered). However, this curriculum does still provide the college-bound with a well-rounded base, and it also offers a number of business and vocational skills. Help prepare your daughters using the model provided in Proverbs 31. Includes Beautiful Girlhood Audiobook and 7 bonus e-books: Friendship, Friendship Notebook pages, Girls in Bookland, Nest in the Honeysuckles, The Merchant Maiden, The Basket of Flowers, and The Value of a Praying Mom. The curriculum is only available in PDF format on CD-ROM. Requires Adobe Reader, a free download. Revised edition, 2016. Win/Mac ~ Rachel/Ruth.

    We try to be pragmatic at our house and in our business - whatever works well, whatever makes sense, that's what we try to do. I've not met Letz Farmer, the author of this book, but I'll bet she's a pragmatist also. Lots of practical, "that makes sense", ideas are included in this ball-and-stick method. For example, capital letters are taught first to minimize reversals that can occur in lower case letters (I thought Mark would never get "b" and "d" straight). Capital letters are taught according to "stroke families"; letters with only vertical and horizontal strokes are taught first; letters with slanted strokes are taught next; finally, letters which have a circular component are taught last, because these are the hardest. The first lower case letters taught are the ones that look exactly like their capital counterparts; next, the ones that look similar to their capital counterparts; and last, the ones that look nothing like their capital counterparts. Practice pages contain three lines for each letter; letters on the first line are thick and fully shaded, and show directional arrows for the starting point and direction of strokes; letters on the second line are thick outlines that allow for some "wiggle" as the child attempts to write his letter inside the outline; the third line is blank and allows the child to make his letters freeform. The book has a fold-flat plastic binding so that the student is not fighting a hump in the page as he attempts to print his letters. Each pair of pages is laid out so that the top of the pair is at the left-hand side as you open the book; when in its upright position, either right-handers or left-handers can use the book without disadvantage.

    Several other niceties are incorporated. A short story and cute illustrations help the child to remember each letter. The bottom of each practice page contains the alphabet, but missing some letters so the child can write them in the appropriate place. Phonics practice and (here's a first) sign language is incorporated if you want to use these along the way. Plus, Bible verses are used as part of each exercise.

    Where did Mrs. Farmer come up with all these good ideas? She credits her "child expert", daughter Laura. Nice job, Laura!
