As I look for new ideas for curriculum and fun learning experiences for my children, I keep finding fun stuff for…ME!! Really, the Lord is good…and funny.
Recently, as I was looking at The Old Schoolhouse products, I came across their new E-Book, HomeWork and their new line of WeE-books TM. I really enjoyed the reads!
Are any of you thinking of working from home? If so, The E-book, HomeWork, Juggling Home Work & School Without losing your Balance is a must have. Packed full of advice and inspiration for anyone interested in running a home business, the ebook is 95 pgs. The stories are funny and heart-warming throughout…and written by homeschooling moms in businesses from recycling jeans to computer network management! I loved the format of the book–it had personal stories as well as a bunch of resource sections, full of website links and further information.
This book really highlit the fact that there are sooo many ways to live, homeschool and work, and all can be offered up to the Lord. I loved one of the quotes from Jill Novak of Remembrance Press, “your products should be an outflow of the work that the Lord is doing in your life.” Truly, reading this E-book is like having coffee with a friend who is telling you all her business secrets! Great, easy read. Worth your time!
After that big read, I was tickled to find the WeE-book TM line. Each of these are real reasonable at $1.95 and vary in length. From the thirty available, I first chose A Light Unto My Path, by Donna Rees. This 23 pg ebook is a sweet, simple, studyguide with copywork included. This is wonderful to have at my fingertips for a sunny day for myself and the children!
A New Beginning, by Pat Marcum, was a 16 pg. serious look at the dangers of public education and a support for parents who are choosing to go forward with homeschooling. This would be perfect to share with your friends who are tentative about beginning to homeschool.
I thoroughly enjoyed my next choice–Homeschooling The Rebel, Part 1, by Deborah Wuehler. I myself have a “rebel” and found this to be chock full of specific helps, further resources and God’s word. The writer is down to earth, clear, and concise. I loved this one! I am definitely getting Part 2!!!!!
