Caroline and I are starting a new Grapevine Studies Bible study. I decided to do Esther with her since I thought the adventurous storyline would appeal to her. Esther is a strong woman and her story provides lots of opportunity for meaningful discussions about culture, faith, obedience and what it means to be a woman used by God.
The Appeal of GrapeVine Studies
GrapeVine Studies appeal to Caroline and me for a few reasons. (See also my previous review of Grapevine’s New Testament overview.) For me, they are easy to prepare and even I can do … Read more »

Do you ever wish you could pick the brain of experienced homeschoolers? Do you long for a better support network as you navigate your homeschooling journey?
I’ve been there. I don’t have much of a homeschool support network in real life. I don’t really have the capability to travel to homeschool conventions. But I have learned so much from other homeschool moms online and in books. That’s why I’m really pleased to be a contributor to a valuable resource for parents.
Enter Big Book of Homeschool Ideas! This is a huge book full of practical information on 103 topics for … Read more »

How is it really September 30th? The past three weeks have been a total blur of Caroline getting sick, being sick, and recovering from sickness. Then we had her eighth (eighth!) birthday prep and celebration.
And during this time our babysitter was out of the country, touring Greece with her family. (Insert crying emoticon here.)
I’m over two weeks behind in my work at a bare minimum. I look at my to do list and don’t even know where to start.
It makes me want to escape by reading a book. LOL!
But we’re going to soldier on. We don’t really have a … Read more »

I’ve written before about how much Caroline and I enjoy using GrapeVine studies for our Bible time. They are perfect for right-brained learners, hands-on learners, and visual learners. GrapeVine Studies offer just the right combination of solid information and being accessible to young learners who might not enjoy a more traditional academic approach that you often find in Bible curriculum and Sunday School.
I’m happy to host another giveaway with them this week! The winner will receive a $25 gift card to purchase products. You can explore all that they have to offer and see all of … Read more »
I’ve been familiar with Grapevine Studies for a number of years. My husband, David, does graphic design work for them so I’ve been privy to see the different covers and products developed during that time. I always had in the back of my mind that it might be a good product to use with Caroline because she likes to draw. This year for second grade I decided to take the plunge and contacted Dianna Wiebe to ask if she’d like to do a swap of curriculum for a review. She agreed so here we are! … Read more »
