I’m excited to bring to you another wonderful Tommy Nelson Mommy giveaway! We look forward to receiving our package every month from Tommy Nelson Mommy, and this one was a real treat! My kids have always enjoyed what we receive, and this month we had the opportunity to check out I will Trust God – Hermie & Friends.
We planned to watch our DVD on the weekend as a whole family, and let me tell you – ALL of us enjoyed it!
The details of the DVD
First Episode: When God asks Hermie to build a boat but doesn’t tell him why, the adventure of Hermie and the High Seas begins. The other garden bugs choose not to help because they are busy and don’t see the need for a boat in the garden. But when the rain comes and the garden floods, all of the bugs run to Hermie’s boat. Everyone in the garden has to learn to trust God, even when it doesn’t make sense.
Second Episode: In Who is in Charge Anyway, Freddie the flea learns from Hermie and the other bugs that God gave everyone his or her own unique gifts and talent. Some are strong, others can spin webs. But what is special about a flea? Freddie has to learn to trust that God has given him his own talents and has a special plan for him. God didn’t make anybody by accident, and He’s not finished with any of us yet!
Total Time: 90 minutes
I’d love for one of you to win a copy of I Will Trust God DVD ~ Hermie & Friends. We are thrilled to have added this to our family DVD collection, and I know you will love it too! To win a copy, enter the giveaway below and a random winner will be chosen on April 22nd!
With Great Homeschool Conventions California coming up in just a couple of months, I am already getting myself stoked about visiting a few of my favorite homeschool companies. I’m very much a visual person, and although I’ve ordered curriculum before without “seeing” it in hand – I prefer taking advantage of the opportunity to get my hands on it before committing to spending money on it.
This is our second year using Math U See, and it’s been wonderful. I plan to continue on with all of their levels, but I would like to see them in had for myself. We are still in the “easy” math stages so I would like to make sure that the more “in-depth” levels are going to suit us when we get to that soon.
This year we’ve used some of the Famous Men series from Memoria Press, and we are REALLY loving it. They have some other curriculum/subjects I would love to get my hands on to visually see if they would “fit” us in the next school year. I’m excited to check out their exhibit booth!
I’m planning on enrolling my kids in Classical Conversations next year. Or at least my oldest, I’m not sure if kids that are in Kindergarten can start in their program at that age. I’ve observed from afar the Classical Education method this year. Throughout our homeschool “career”, we have slowly migrated towards Classical Education methods, and curriculum. Curriculum typically used in the Classical Education method are ones that we happen to love the most! I caved and purchased The Well Trained Mind, and I am LOVING it! I wish I would have purchased it sooner! Next year, I’m going to quit dancing around with other methods that just don’t fit us, and we’ll be switching to the Classical Education method. We’re excited! I can’t wait to learn more about Classical Conversations and their program at Great Homeschool Conventions!
