Resources for Torah families

resources

When my husband and I left our church back in 2007, we suddenly realized that we were responsible to teach our children spiritual things. There would be no Sunday school. It was all on us. That can be a very overwhelming feeling, but it doesn’t have to be. There are lots of people and resources […]

History Resources

I was asked to share what schoolbooks I use to teach my children. Rather than share what they happen to be using right now, I thought I’d share my top picks for each subject. Everything I share was either used by my mother homeschooling my sister and I, or used by my children. Nothing New […]

Torah science – guiding principles

science

Taking your kids outside to observe and learn about nature is a tremendous way to teach them about their Creator. I love going for little walks with my kids and seeing what we can find, from ant hills to wildflowers, to grasshoppers. Most of the time, I just send them outside to explore on their […]

Torah science – wildflowers

Today, I want to take you on a little stroll down memory lane. Hopefully, I can share with you the love of nature that I acquired in my childhood and have tried to pass on to my children. My little sister and I spent hours outside playing. The first house I remember was a cement […]

Proverbs 9 for children

proverbs

Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you; reprove a wise man, and he will love you. Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.   Proverbs 9:8-9  ESV We have been reading through Proverbs at our house. I figure […]

Torah Science – goldenrod

goldenrod

As we look at Torah, we find that it is filled with stories and pictures based on the world around us. The first people were placed in a garden. We see rivers, seas, trees, animals, and deserts. Yeshua taught us parables to show us that we see lessons first in the physical world, and then […]

Create a children’s Torah notebook

notebook

I’m always on the lookout for ways to make Torah practical and real for my children. I don’t want them to see the Bible as a bunch of antiquated stories that are fun to listen to but don’t really mean anything. Today I stumbled upon an idea that I hope you will find helpful. It’s […]

Scripture on your doorpost

scripture

YHVH wants us to surround and immerse ourselves with His instructions. With obedience to His commands comes great blessings. But we are feeble humans, and if we are not constantly reminded of His Word, we will soon forget. So, we are commanded to post Scripture on the doorposts of our home. Hear, O Israel: YHVH […]

Bible journaling – I Thessalonians 5:16-18

I Thessalonians

Today, we are in I Thessalonians for our Bible journaling page. It’s a simple and amazing passage. I have seen some amazing benefits to writing Scripture in the last two months. Scripture has been on my mind so much more than when I just read it. Habits of Bible time and prayer have been firmly […]

The Bell of Atri – using history to teach Torah

history

I love history! If you study history as a collection of stories about the human experience rather than dates and facts, history is a colorful and rich study. We study people and their choices, their consequences and successes. We learn from their experiences and hopefully apply their wisdom to our own lives. My daughter Sadie […]
