We begin our time of lessons by reading stories of faith for about 20 minutes or so. We have already done Bible with Dad over breakfast so I did not want to read from the Bible again, so we have been choosing other books that show us who God is, or books that inspire noble ideas. Last year we began reading the short stories of faith from Hero Tales Vol. 1. It was a big hit! We saw how God did some amazing things when people trusted him. Then we read Hinds Feet in High Places and learned about how God turns jelly fish into mountain goats and how He loves impossible challenges. Lastly we read through Millie Molly Mandy. MMM wasn’t so much about faith and God, but it was a good read about good character and that works in our house too.
This year we plan to read:
These are stories of around the world of people living overseas with God. The title really explains it all.
Stories from an Indonesian revival told by a Indonesian Christian.
Short Stories from long ago to inspire and give hope.
We all know this one...the illustrations in this volume are priceless.
After we read stories of faith we begin a 20 minute lesson on one of the over 200 decoder rules from Harvey Bluedorns book entitled Handy English Encoder Decoder. But that is for the next post.
