Snowy Books for Snowy Days: Our Favourite Winter Picture Books
Winter really is the reader’s season, isn’t it? There’s nothing better than being snowed in with a stack of books and a cup of hot cocoa! Each year I enjoy filling our book basket with our favourite winter picture books, as well as adding fun new finds. If you are looking for ideas for great …
Winter Nature Study
If you’re anything like me, you may find it difficult to be consistent with Nature Study once the temperature drops and the snow starts to fly.

I can still remember the freshness of the very first time I ever read through the Bible. Everything was so new to me! I could easily spend an hour reading the word, taking notes, being totally in awe of all that I was discovering about the Lord Jesus within those precious pages. That was just …
Bringing Stories to Life Through Play
One of my children’s favourite things to do is to imagine that they are the characters in the stories we read.
