    That is a beautiful story. It really is so important what are children are exposed to. We sometimes think that because a book is ‘popular’, then it must be good. That just isn’t the case. As parents we really do need to be diligent about what our children are reading.

    What an amazing story of how powerful books are in our lives. I was wondering if your daughter stayed in school the whole time or if you pulled her out to homeschool?

      Hi Ashley! Thanks for taking the time to comment! Jenny Phillips does homeschool her children and has for many years.

    It is a blessing! I love your curriculum. It changes my Outlook as a parent. I’m so grateful God sent you on this mission. It’s hard to pull together something so amazing. Thank you for all you do.

    I really like your book list and as an avid reader have read many of the books on it myself. That being the case you should check out the Daisy Dawson books and the Billie B. Brown books. Both are engaging stories that are promote goodness. The Billie B. Books especially deal with how children should treat others and behave today such as learning to be honest, kind, and patient.
