In the Library

Based on 29 years of homeschooling and the hundreds of books that we have read over the years, Jon and I can emphatically state that the following books and DVD’s are the most important materials you will ever use to teach your children God’s truth and providential working through history. In fact, the vast majority of our days are spent in reading, studying, discussing, and copying notes from these very materials. More than anything, other than the Bible, these materials have had the greatest impact on our lives, transforming the way we think and live. We are eternally grateful to God for instructing us with these books and hope that these resources bless your family as much as they have ours.
