Tween and Teen Character Training With Adventures in Odyssey

I received a free copy of Adventures in Odyssey: Up in the Air, and I was compensated for my time. See full disclosure here. My girls have always loved the Adventures in Odyssey series. We listened to them often when they were younger but as they hit the tween and teen years they slowly started to loose interest. However, I always keep a CD or two with me, in my Sunday school bag.

All Saints Movie - Faith, Community, Relationships

Word. The Bible tells us that: All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable forREAD MORE

After a very long and frustrated venting session on a Facebook group a few months ago, a homeschool mom suggested Mr. D Math. I finally got the opportunity to try the Mr. D Math curriculum hands on. I failed Algebra I my freshman and sophomore years of high school; then somehow passed the following year. I’m convinced my math teacher awarded me that glorious D minus out of pure pity. I’d love to say that my struggle with math endedREAD MORE
