helpful websites you can use for good

Below are some of the many helpful websites the Lord has let me find, recently.
Hope they will also inspire and help you, as you endeavour to educate your children to walk in the Way of the Master, Yeshua the Messiah, our precious Lord, Saviour, Best Friend, and Redeemer and King! He is wonderful, awesome and miraculous in power, in Love, in patience, in Mercy, in Grace He gives us each day, and in The Shalom Peace He gives which passes all understanding! Hallelujah!

Anne Elliot's "Anne's School Place" has a great list of website links for you to find, at the link I have set up, above. ;o) You will like all that she has on her site! So helpful! Visit her site and you will be glad you did!


Visual Manna's Sharon Jeffus has done it again! She is a wonderful art teacher!, but ... She has written and developed a phonics reading program, using art!! It is called Artsy Animals. Please visit her site and see what she has to offer, to help you teach your children art at any level / age, or to help you teach phonics, or English, or science, or about the Renaissance period of history, or ... ! It's all there! You won't want to miss this great website! Their materials are so easy to use, and so inspiring! I have not found any better art materials, and we have been home educating our children for over 15 years!
Check out her "Links" page! It's great! Not a long list, but a valuable one!


Knowledge Quest Maps is Terri Johnson's amazing geographical treasure chest, to me! She has materials I wish I had had in the 1990s, when I was teaching our first 3 children! oh my! Now, I can use what Terri has designed with our next 3 students! Praise the Lord! Her blank maps ... are great fun for all 3 of my children to write on. With copies we make, we can use them over and over, even including different land features, or other information, for other studies, such as our family travels, in some cases! And the maps with the names for cities or rivers, or other geographical information filled in, ... bring a big smile to a teacher's face! They are so easy to use, along with most any curriculum or history book! I have not found such helpful maps elsewhere in this format!
Please visit her site, and also visit her blog, for more ideas! http://knowledgequestmaps.blogspot.com/
Terri is a generous lady, offering great deals on her thorough, helpful materials, that help in teaching both world and U.S. history. !
Thank you, Terri, for doing such a good job at what you do!


Hope Chest Legacy -- a website by Rebekah Wilson, sharing about the importance, in a young lady's / young woman's life of setting up a "hope chest" ... and they offer some lovely "free" instructions for young ladies' crafts, as well as some good recipes. They are re-doing their site right now, so please be patient. They will only be improving on it! A very lovely and helpful and inspiring site!

The Institute for Creation Research -- you must visit this site! They share with us their wonderfully-designed, free, online version of their "Acts & Facts" magazine. I love it! Technical, and understandable, but always inspired and useful, for those of us wanting to know more about God's creation, from a truthful viewpoint!
Please visit their site!

The Learning Parent, a website owned by Rick and Marilyn Boyer, to benefit those who home educate their children. Their blog is also a great help to us all! Check out both of them!

Shekinah Curriculum Cellar's discount homeschool book and curriculum "storehouse." wow! They sure have lots of choices, of materials, books, curriculum and related "stuff" that all of us can use!

Andrew Pudewa's brilliant writing curriculum and his spelling (and other) educational materials! wow! What would homeschoolers do without him to help us along? He is such a blessing!

American Vision
"Restoring America's Biblical Foundation—From Genesis to Revelation."

American Vision's mission statement reads, "Restoring America's Biblical Foundation—From Genesis to Revelation." This statement determines who we are, what projects we will do, and what battles we will wage.

It makes three critical points:

I. America's foundation was once built upon the Bible
II. America is losing this Biblical foundation
III. The Bible must be believed and applied from Genesis to Revelation

... well, Cynthia says it best, on her webpage:

Book of Centuries is a history timeline in a book or notebook. It is a terrific tool for making history come alive for your students, as it helps them to see the connections between the various people and events that they study. It will pull together ALL of your history lessons and can be used with ANY curriculum!

My new ebook Step by Step: Book of Centuries will guide you through creating and using a history timeline notebook, but it will also do SO MUCH MORE! In fact, it contains lots of information that will help you with teaching history in any format!
