Family Devotions

My husband has recently starting using the book Training Hearts Teaching Minds by Starr Meade for our family devotions. It is based on the shorter catechism. What we enjoy so much about it is the length of time it spends on each question. It has very applicable short devotions for 6 days on one catechism question. We have had some great discussions with our 7 year old. We are memorizing the questions with her. I had never heard of the catechism prior to the last 6 years. What rich truth!

For pre-school age we used Big Truths for Little Kids by Susan Hunt. The stories are very age appropriate and concepts pre schoolers are able to grasp.

Have a good weekend

I'm glad you are posting your story of how you came to homeschool too! It is so interesting to see how the Lord leads each of us in such different ways.
I was looking at a different book that goes through the westmin. shorter catechism for shcool. I am going to check this one out, it looks really good.
