The Word of Promise, NKJV Audio Bible

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.  Romans 10:17, KJV

 

There's something you get from listening to the Scriptures you can't receive in any other way.  Audio Bibles are a great way to listen and absorb God's Truths!

The Word of Promise audio Bible from Thomas Nelson features the New King James version.  Basically?  The King James you know without all the "thee, thy, thou" business.  Majestic but accessible for today's reader and listener.

This CD set isn't cheesy as several other renditions of the Gospel.  You know the kind.  Maybe you gave away those tapes about ten years ago because you never wanted to hear them again.  This version uses real actors and the background music "goes" but does not detract from the reading or overpower it. The books where there is really just one speaker (such as Romans and so forth) had music in the background, or ocean waves, or very light music playing.  They just barely made it seem less like the disc was recorded in the studio over several takes.  Who-ever "mixed" the sound recordings did a very good job. 

I think my favourite "character" in this series is Herod. He doesn't sound at all as though he's just reading a line, which is pretty tough to do in a Bible story.  The guy sounds almost like a Mafia character, totally pretending to keep his cool but ya know better than to cross him.

The only downside would have to be the packaging.  They crammed bunches of discs in a holder that really doesn't hold the first four discs in well.  I've popped them all in another holder which actually makes listening in order much easier.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this set free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

  1. Isn't technology wonderful?
    audio books make it easy for anyone to hear any book without having to find someone willing to read to them.

  2. That was wonderful, and you would appreciate the work of Michael Long, the while bible was translated to audio/video. A KJV version.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
