- Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The World's Greatest Stories- TOS review
Homeschooling happens wherever you go and any time of day (or night). I love it when I find a product that makes the most of my time. The World's Greatest Stories are CDs that bring the Bible to life! Exciting music and the engaging voice of George W. Sarris adds drama to the audio and almost makes you feel like you are there, all those years ago. The stories are read from the Bible- word for word- but with the flair of an excellent storyteller. There is a King James version and a New international version.
The girls and I listened to the stories of The Prophets, which included The Blazing Furnace, The Handwriting on the Wall, Daniel in the Lions' Den, Elijah and the Prophets of Baal, and the Prophecy of Jonah. I loved that we could listen while doing chores, creating art and even driving in the car. The CD was an hour long and truly kept our attention. We were on the edge of our seats during some parts! My younger daughter, who just turned 9, was a bit scared at times. I was really impressed at the quality of the CDs and would like to purchase more of them. There are currently 6 volumes in The World's Greatest Stories Collection:
-The Life of Christ
-Joshua and Esther
-Joseph and His Brothers
The CDs are $7.95 each and if you purchase 6 the shipping is free. They would make great stocking stuffers and are something the whole family would enjoy. I would caution that younger children may become frightened at times, like my daughter was.
