A Christian Delight Directed Curriculum!

After homeschooling for 10 years and trying all types of curriculum I have finally discovered that not all curriculums work for all children. My son who is in high school is a textbook style learner he learns well from reading and answering questions. My middle daughter on the other hand struggles with several subjects. This resulted in lots of unpleasant home school days. And my youngest daughter falls some where in the middle of the other two. So I decided to try Delight Directed Learning and have fallen in love with this approach. There is something satisfying about watching your child learn and retain things because it is what they wanted to learn and not forced upon them. We started out using the Thinking Tree Journals which I do love and we are finishing them up this year, but for me I just wanted a little more structure in our day. I searched and searched for a curriculum and could not find anything. So as the line from the movie (Robots) says ....."See a need fill a need!" So I did just that. I created a curriculum that not only is lesson planned for the parent and child but that covers core subjects and is delight directed! We will be using my curriculum for next year and I will put both of my girls in it. How it works: My Curriculum is called A Christian Delight Directed Curriculum and is laid out so that the student chooses their books and then they start at day one. They complete six pages a day and when finished with the six pages then you are done with school for the day. The curriculum is meant to be used along with your own math curriculum because most homeschoolers have a preferred math curriculum already. You can use books from the library, online resources, thrift store books or you can check books out from grandma or grandpa like we do! My curriculum is very affordable and are in two books volume 1 and volume 2, each book has 90 days of guided lessons which equals to a 180 day school year. The first books cover grades 3rd through 8th and then there is a high school level which is the same format as the elementary levels but covers electives. These curriculum books are available on Amazon along with other books I have published. You can click on the links at the top of my blog. If you are looking for an affordable way to homeschool then you need to check these out! Just a disclaimer, I do get a small kick back from Amazon if you click on the link from my blog, it is greatly appreciated and blesses my family.

  2. Hello Gina,

    I do not have a video out yet of the high school books. They are very similar to the lay out of these books though. For instance you start at day 1 and your child will have a Bible page where they can read in their bible and then summarize what they read. They will have a language arts/literature page ,History ,Science, a blank math page to work out problems and a page for an elective. The high school books are more of a what topic are you studying and then tell what you learned type of curriculum so it is great because it will fit with what ever the child is interested in. I believe if you click on the Amazon link at the top of the page it will take you to what ever book you choose and you should be able to see inside of it. I hope this helps , if you have any other questions feel free to ask. God Bless!

Hello everyone!


Today I just wanted to give a short little explanation about my curriculum books that I have created for my children. First of all, I created them specifically for my daughter that learns differently from the norm. She is a right-brained thinker and a very artistic and critical thinker. My daughter did not like the standard read and answer questions as most curriculum books are laid out this way. So I had to get creative. I realized she learned best when she was able to choose a subject that interested her, and the information stuck in her head! I was so thrilled! So I scoured the internet trying to find a curriculum that would do just what she needed. I did not find anything that I liked so I decided to create my own. And so A Christian Delight Directed Curriculum was born!!! Both of my girls use …

Stand Still And Let God Move!

Do you ever feel like you pray and pray and nothing happens? Maybe you you try to take situations into your own hands and it just causes more stress to your life?

Well that's how I feel. Lately I have been praying for multiple things and in my impatient heart nothing is happening. But the Lord reminded me that he is an on time God. He has a perfect plan for my life if I will just sit back and stand still and let him move. So I am, and it's funny how things begin to happen or fall into place when you least expect it. I am so thankful that the Lord speaks to my heart. Just the other day my husband had some good news and then something irritating happened and the Lord showed me how the devil likes to seek and destroy. You see in our happy moment something came up that was just simply irritating and the devil tried to still our joy. I am thankful that the Lord gave me the insight to see this and rebuke the devil!
With Thanksgiving upon us I am reminded of all the blessings the L…

The Contented Homemaker

Hello Everyone,

Lets chat for a bit. For as long as I can remember I have longed to be a homemaker. Sure there are a lot of girls who wish to grow up and have a huge career and make lots of money etc. But for me I have always wanted to be a wife and mother. Sound boring? Well I will tell you that the life of a wife and mother is far from boring and it is the highest calling that God has for a women. I have always longed to be like Caroline Ingalls and to live in a tiny house somewhere on the prairie. She was content where ever she was as long as she had God and her family. I want to raise my children as she did firm but loving. I want to honor and respect my husband for all that he is and does and to Glorify God in all that I do. Am I perfect? NO, I fall short in so many ways. The wonderful thing is that God molds me and makes me into what he wants me to be daily. We live in a day and age where so many women are not content and satisfied with life. Maybe its because as homemakers and…
