    A Young Woman’s Guide to Discovering Her Bible takes a personal approach: Elizabeth George speaks directly to the reader, mentoring her in a discipleship approach. Bible study methods and practices are interwoven with studying women “mentors” from the Bible, with extra emphasis placed on the Godly (and practical) characteristics of the Proverbs 31 woman. Ten chapters emphasize study, Biblical character and the Holy Spirit’s guidance to become more like Jesus.

    Contains text intermixed with fill-in questions that guide you naturally through the process; study and practice are equally emphasized; and each contains tools in the appendices to build spiritual training habits including reminders for Bible study, a Bible Reading Plan, and a Quiet Times Calendar.

    This is a great book for introducing younger children to the moving and powerful stories from the Bible. In a storybook format, it takes the reader through Genesis to Revelation, showing how the Bible is one big story about God and His plan for the world. The stories are paraphrased and written so young children can understand them and what they mean. They are surprisingly insightful and will captivate kids while they learn more about God and become familiar with Bible stories. Full-color pages feature illustrations of the stories, and the book is great for reading out-loud or for slightly older kids to read independently. Measures 6.5" x 7.75" and is about an inch thick. 352 pgs, hc.

    Finally, a large print Bible for young readers! One of the best pieces of advice I received in my early days of homeschooling was to have a large print Bible for my young children. The point was made that young children may focus better on their reading skills without having to strain to read the small text, making Bible reading less intimidating and more enjoyable. Within the pages of this Bible, you will find a "Getting to know Jesus" question and answer section, introductions and outline of contents for each book of the Bible, 14 full color illustrations, eight Bible reading helps, eight full color maps, a dictionary, double column text and a list of one hundred fifty Bible stories. The NIrV is based upon the NIV and contains shorter sentences, simplified text and consistent use of names (eg: Sea of Galilee is used throughout NT, rather than the interchangeable names Sea of Gennesaret and Sea of Tiberias). Here is a sample from the NIrV, "God has breathed life into all Scripture. It is useful for teaching us what is true. It is useful for correcting our mistakes. It is useful for making our lives whole again. It is useful for training us to do what is right." 2 Timothy 3:16. 8 1/2"x 5 ½" 2042 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

    Written to a second grade reading level, this book by Karyn Henley presents the Bible in 365 slices, designed to take about 7 minutes each to read. Presented in a chronological format, you'll find David's psalms in line with the stories about his life they refer to, as well as the consolidation of the New Testament so that your child encounters a single story of Jesus and the 1st century church which followed His resurrection. Genealogies, detailed laws, and repetitive passages have been excluded to keep your child's interest. With the readings being as short as they are, this is a great resource to establish a daily Bible time with kids. ~ Tom

    Curious by nature, Adara is not content with the docile lifestyle she is expected to live as a young Hebrew girl. She longs to have the same freedoms as the men folk. She daydreams of learning to read and write, a privilege offered only to Jewish boys. More than anything though, she yearns to travel outside the confines of the gated village where she lives with her family. To Adara, life is as predictable as the turning of a wheel. That is until one morning, with the blast of a trumpet, life as Adara knows it changes forever. Note: This is a fictionalized telling of the story of Naaman and Elisha, found in Kings II, Chapter 5. There is some rough language scattered throughout. You may wish to "censor" with a marker before handing this one over to your younger readers. ~ Rachel P.

    Learning new things is easier for young students when tied in to a common theme. That's why unit studies are so popular and successful. So what about Galloping the Globe? It's a unit study centered around geography. It encourages a detailed look at a selection of countries from the six populated continents as well as the North and South Poles and Christmas around the world. Using the countries being studied geographically as the basic platform, the authors have included ideas and references, projects and activities for integrating Bible, people/history, science, literature, vocabulary, internet sources, maps & flags, cooking, music/art, games, puzzles, and crafts into the curriculum. An aspect to this unit study which is similar to the Trail Guide to… series is the student notebook approach, where the child will actually produce a notebook full of art projects, reports, biographies, geographic dictionary pages, and much more. This is intended to be something they can show to other people, reinforcing and reviewing what they have learned as they explain various facts to friends and family. This is a fairly flexible course, with a full study of every topic listed taking between two and three years to complete. You can also pick and choose projects to simply make this a year long course. While geography is the main focus of this unit study, it does a good job of including the resources needed to study the other subjects, too. Answers are included and the consumable work pages are reproducible (and are also now found on the included CD-ROM in PDF format, which makes it even easier to use with multiple children). There are several recommended resources which are used multiple times throughout the course. If you are interested in purchasing these, please see below. Items without prices are those that we do not currently carry. The resource list has been recently revised to accommodate for items that were going out of print, and several new resources have been added. This is the newest version, revised in 2010 with a CD-ROM of printable forms, activity sheets, maps and flags. CD is Win/Mac compatible; requires Adobe Reader (a free download). 266 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    Now in its 4th edition, Gladys Hunt's book has encouraged thousands of families to reap the benefits of quality literature. Gladys wrote Honey for a Child's Heart to help others experience the same influence that reading books both separately and together has had on her family. In the first section of this book, she offers advice on "using books to help children grow." Through the chapters in this section she emphasizes the way that quality literature affects children, provides tips on raising a reader, helps you learn how to select good books and stories for your children, and discusses the merits of reading aloud together. She also explores in depth the question "What Makes a Good Book?" and discusses fantasy vs. realism and poetry before talking about the influences on your children from various sources. Gladys also provides a chapter in this section encouraging family Bible reading, warmly sharing on how to integrate it into your daily life and why it is so important. The second half of this volume, aptly sub-titled "Books your children should have the opportunity to enjoy," features lists of quality literature for different age levels and interests. These lists are organized by author and then title with brief descriptions of each book. Thirteen chapters recommend books for children age 0-3; picture book classics and more favorite picture books for 4-8 year olds; first books for beginning readers, classic children's novels, more great books for intermediate readers, stories for animal lovers, historical novels, and fantasy novels, all geared towards 9-12 year olds; young adult novels for ages 12-14; and worthwhile poetry, Bible and Christian truths storybooks, and books for special occasions. 251 pgs. ~ Steph

    The first time I heard of Lady Jane Grey was when I watched a short film about her at a film festival this year; I'm surprised I hadn't heard of her before. Her story is very inspiring! At only 16 years old, she found herself as Queen of England, in the face of opposition from Mary I ("Bloody Mary"). Two weeks later, Mary had brought 10,000 soldiers into the situation, quickly gained favor with the Navy, and soon deposed Lady Grey. With the population returning to Roman Catholicism to avoid punishment from Mary, Jane had a choice: would she compromise in order to attempt saving her own life, or would she stand and die for the Truth of the Gospel? This is a story every Christian young person ought to know. Photos and paintings illustrate this hardback book; also included is a timeline of Lady Grey's life, a section of extra facts about her, and the text of the letter she wrote to her sister during imprisonment. 62 pgs. –Chad

    Here are 46 short stories (8 pages or less for each), specially crafted by Patricia St. John to encourage readers to grow in greater knowledge of God and the principles in His Word. Each story begins with a Scripture reference that introduces the concept of the story, and ends with three or four of the following insightful pointers: an author's note (some extra exhortation), keynote (emphasizing the biblical point of the story), a prayer, and a topic for further consideration. From God and Jesus to the sacrifice of the cross and the Holy Spirit, to spiritual growth and trusting God – these stories are an encouragement that touch many aspects of our lives. 235 pgs in pb. – Zach

    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.
