OverlapMaps – Fun Geography Resource

Have you ever wondered if Australia would fit inside the state of Texas? (It doesn’t) What about Brazil? I’ve always thought it was smaller than the continental US. It turns out it’s very similar in size. I have just been introduced to a fun geography website: OverlapMaps.com. OverlapMaps is a very simple, entertaining, and educational […]

Say Goodbye to Survival Mode Review

In November I happened to see a post in my Facebook feed about signing up for a chance to be on the launch team for Crystal Paine’s (Money Saving Mom) upcoming book, Say Goodbye to Survival Mode. Based on the title alone, I decided to sign up. At the time, I really felt like I […]

Putting on the Spirit

I have a confession. I have trouble being consistent with studying the Bible. I want to. I plan to. But all too often, I let things get in the way. Like sleep. Or the computer. Or chores. Honestly, the thing that worked the best and the longest was being in a weekly Bible study with […]

Easy Canvas Prints Review

I was recently contacted by Easy Canvas Prints with an opportunity to review one of their products. I have seen many advertisements for photo canvases, but I have never actually purchased one, so I was eager to see what they looked like close up. Then came the hard part. (The only hard part.)

Money Secrets of the Amish by Lorilee Craker

It seems that the Amish lifestyle is a hot topic these days. In our fast-paced, modern society, we miss what the Amish have: family, community, and simplicity. But although there is a trend towards people simplifying their lives, I don’t think many people are becoming Amish. However, the basic frugal principles that the Amish follow […]

Already Compromised–by Ken Ham and Greg Hall

Not every homeschooler chooses to homeschool for religious reasons. However, a great many homeschoolers do choose to homeschool so that they can teach their children from a Christian worldview. But after finishing high school, where should a young Christian continue his education if he chooses to do so? State University? Community College? Christian College? There […]

Life of John Knox

Who was John Knox? He was a leader (if not THE leader) of the Protestant Reformation in Scotland. That is about the extent of what I knew about him. I also had a sort of vague idea that most of the modern history books aren’t too kind to him. That was before I read the […]
