How Can This Be Free?

Below is something I posted about six years ago. I wanted to share it with you too. Someone questioned how this site could really be free.

How can this be free?

Part 1 – Stepping out of the boat

Why would I offer this for free? Let me tell you a piece of my story.

My husband and I have served the Lord overseas for more than 10 years. For several years we raised the money that we received monthly from our agency. When we came home on furlough, we spent each weekend in a different church, sharing our stories and hoping for financial support.

In 2008, we felt convicted to leave the system. We didn’t like it being such a business, a job. We thought serving the Lord should be 24/7/365, not a 40-hour week. My husband also felt like he was “unequally yoked” at his job teaching English. He didn’t like that they controlled his time.

So he left his job, and we left our agency. We wrote to all of our supporters and told them to send their money to orphans instead. We stepped out of the boat and onto the water. We were going to trust the Lord to provide, and we were pretty sure we would be tested to see if we really did trust Him.

Part 2 – The Test

We eventually ran out of money, but that’s when the miracles happened. We were trusting God to provide. We knew we were obeying, had always given very generously and had faith that His word was true. The bills were due the next day. A few people still sent us money from time to time, saying that the Lord had prompted them to give. We accepted their gifts. They would give through Paypal, and it would show up in our bank account under “pending balance.” With nothing pending in our bank account, we knew it would be at least three business days before money would be available, even if someone sent something that night.

Before bed, my husband decided to check the bank account one more time. And there it was. Our miracle. $1000 was in our available balance. It said it was a direct deposit. We had told no one of our need. My parents were the only ones with our bank account info, and they were traveling out of the country at the time and had nothing to do with it. $1000 was enough for the whole next month (We lived in a ghetto very cheaply).

Part 3 – The Accidental Blogger

That same year our family learned about lapbooks from a friend of mine. She pointed out one that we got for $1. (This is also how we learned about Currclick.com.) I started designing lapbooks for my kids to make. My kids started designing lapbooks for themselves.

I had always posted family pictures online for our far-away family and friends, and I would post pictures of our lapbooks to show the grandparents what the kids were doing for school. I started getting strangers showing up at my family page to see our lapbooks (Google alerted them). I felt strange having these strangers looking at my family photos, so I separated them and started posting our school pictures on a blog, “Just Us.”

I thought I could earn money by making lapbooks and selling them on Currclick.com.  I sent them a sample and they sent me a contract. Before I signed it, the Lord convicted me. I was impressed to not sell them but to give them away. So I did. Giving away free lapbooks, I started building a following at my homeschool blog.

Part 4 – The Rest of the Story

There’s more of my story between then and now, but I guess that’s for another day. There was never a question of selling this curriculum. The Lord had already turned my heart on that issue, but I was making the site for my own children, and I didn’t want to have this whole curriculum and have only my children use it. I wanted to help others who needed to homeschool for free. From day one I wrote the assignments to be used by anyone, not just my family.

If you’ve been following along, it’s not hard to understand how I got started homeschooling for free. We are no longer in the same situation. My husband now has the perfect job teaching foreign languages to homeschool students online through Currclick.com. He works part time, sets his own hours and he LOVES foreign languages and has fun teaching.

But now I am committed to homeschooling for free. The first year I was putting together the curriculum, no one else was using it. When a few people did start using it, I added the donate button to the site. I knew I was offering something of value and that there would be people who would want to give.

So, hopefully you can see who I am and why I would offer this for free a little better now. I love giving. It makes me happy. I have learned to trust God to provide, so I don’t feel the need to build the curriculum into a business. It’s an encouragement every time I’m surprised by a donation message in my inbox, but it’s a much bigger encouragement when people write to tell me about how they couldn’t have continued homeschooling without the site. I’m not going to take it away from them.

    We are so blessed by this curriculum! There is NO way we could have afforded to purchase curriculum this year or in the foreseeable future. Your generosity has made our dream possible and we are so very grateful! Thank you so much! Praise God for you and this ministry of yours:)

  2. Christina October 15, 2013 / 2:17 pm

    Amen Amen is all I can say to you!! Your website was a gift from God. This is the first year I’m homeschooling my sons 12,10, and my daughter 4, I was looking every single night staying up till 3am looking for the perfect bible based curriculum and when I stumbled across yours this morning at 7:15am I almost started crying. Not only was it bible based but I can incorporate both of my sons which was a true blessing! Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication and love. May God bless you and your family !

    Thank you.. Words cannot express how overjoyed I feel to have stumble across your site. This is our second year homeschooling and I have been so caught up in all the “this is the best curriculum and each is 100$ or more, and it all never feels enough. I was getting very worried that homeschooling wouldn’t be plausible anymore for us because of money. ears are rolling down as I read your story, and I just want to encourage you and say thank you, thank you so much for obeying the Most High. You have deeply impacted many, including myself already by your thoughtfulness and obedience unto the Lord. Thank you.. just Thank you…

    Hello! I found your website while looking for christian online homeschooling. I am SO thankful I did. I have 3 children in the public school system and a 4th who would be there in 2 years. I home schooled the oldest for 3 years and then felt compelled by her and others to put her in, but have been regretting it, though trying to make the most of the situation and remain a good and supportive influence at home. She and one of her brothers attend a very small school (30 students total) and so there is a blessing in that, but she will be done there in 1 1/2 yrs and off to middle school, at which point I would love to try your program. My husband has been out of work for 3 years and I make little with odd jobs here and there, so to have the option of something that is well grounded and challenging at low or no cost is a huge blessing to me. Thank you for offering this, for sharing with so many! May you continue to be blessed for what you’re doing!

      • Aria January 13, 2016 / 2:30 pm

        I am 11but I found this when I was 10. I love it. I have a little brother and sister. My sister has cerebral Palsy. I have always been home schooled. I cannot seem to get my mom to let us use it for our school. I love school and just wanted some free school that I could do on my own time. This is the best and the only bible baste. I have a really hard time finding a free one let alone a bible basted one. Thank you.

  5. Krista Smith December 5, 2013 / 7:15 pm

    Thank you so much 🙂 You have totally given me confidence! I don’t feel so overwhelmed by the prospect of teaching my own children (God’s way!). So many thanks to you and your family for obeying the Lord and doing this. We are so blessed by your hard work and selflessness 🙂

  6. elizabeth December 15, 2013 / 10:51 pm

    Your testimony is beautiful. Your generosity of heary and obedience to Christ is amazing and inspirational. This is exactly what I havebeen looking for! Your hard workdiligence, and willingness to share are a tremendous blessing to me and my family. Thank you! Thank you!

  7. TedandAngel Vickrey December 20, 2013 / 5:44 am

    Wow, praise the Lord for you obedience and diligence! This website has just changed my life, I have struggled with homeschooling in the past, and this year our 2 elementary age children went to public school. I regretted the decision almost immediately, and began seeking an alternative but felt trapped by the system and our financial situation. So we have been praying for an answer, we desire a lifestyle change, a complete priority shift and it was something that was really troubling my heart, that I wasn’t able to train my children the way I knew the Lord wanted me to.Lately things have escalated and we felt a need to pull our kids out 2 days ago without a plan, we were trusting God to provide and He did through you!! We will begin tomorrow!! Thank you so much and God bless you!

  8. trinity52607 January 17, 2014 / 1:11 am

    What a beautiful story of faith and how God truly provides for us each and every day. I’ve seen since I was a child how God can bless your family when you are faithful to Him. Thank you so much for this curriculum. I’ve just started the homeschooling journey and am seriously considering your curriculum. May God bless you and your family.

  9. Melisa Ormesher January 22, 2014 / 7:02 pm

    This is an awesome story. What a blessing you are to so many families. I know that God will continue to bless you and your family for the heart you have to give. Thank you for being obedient to the Lord.

  10. Cheri Jensen January 24, 2014 / 9:22 pm

    I struggle “money issues as weell and thought I would have to put my kids in school cause I could afford to buy anymore books but since I found this site I am reborn. I thank you so much for helping all of us!!!

  11. Jennifer February 2, 2014 / 2:03 pm

    Oh my goodness! What a blessing you are to so many families! I can’t thank you enough for the time and effort that you have put into this. What a gift you have given here!

    God Bless you!
    Jennifer

  12. Sarah February 9, 2014 / 11:13 am

    Thank you for this. I feel that the Lord guided me here. To make a long story short, we’ve been living on prayer for several months and managed to lose almost all of our books during a move. I have been frantically cobbling together lessons for my children every week this school year. I was actually online searching for materials to plan lessons for this coming week. Your site is exactly what I needed to find and has lifted a huge weight from my shoulders. Thank you so much, we will be using your lessons immediately.

    “The Lord bless you and keep you–the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.” Numb. 6:24-26.

  13. Rachael February 13, 2014 / 1:34 pm

    Thank you so much for your ministry! As an older MK, I really appreciate your dedication and service. You have also made something affordable, that would have been a financial burden on our family otherwise as our family is becoming quite large. 😉

  14. Amalia Ortiz March 3, 2014 / 12:13 am

    Praise God! You are a picture of the Virtuous Women Proverbs 31 speaks about. You truly extend your hand, verse 20 giving, servant to those in need. Confidence from God not self which is rooted in understanding God. May the Blessings of God continue fall upon you and your family as you shine and give God the glory. Thank you for being transparent and sharing.

  15. Karrie March 24, 2014 / 8:42 pm

    Thank you for posting all of your hard work to benefit other families. I was feeling overwhelmed with curriculum costs and choices. This was my first year homeschool. I am looking forward to using your posted resources for next year. This is such a time-saver and money-saver. Thank you!

  16. Belinda Bernal August 10, 2014 / 8:50 pm

    Hello. You and your site are an answer to a Prayer I just prayed last night. I have been wanting to home school my son but was afraid, since I only have a high school diploma, I didn’t think myself smart enough. I said a prayer last night. I got up this morning and came across your site. In then left for mass. In today’s gospel it was about not being afraid. .leaving the boat as you said in your story that I just now read! That is not a coincidence to me it is God saying to me to leave the boat..to not be afraid ..that I am not alone! Free! You are a wonderful servant of the Lord. Thank you and I am nervous and excited and less afraid about the journey my son and I will be on the first year of home school:) God bless!

  17. Sandy August 11, 2014 / 2:24 pm

    My two kids & I just recently found your site. We are starting day 6 of 6th grade today. We really love the Latin videos but are enjoying the Bible parts of the curriculum the most!!! I’m ashamed that we haven’t consistently included Bible in our lessons before. Everything is so expensive, & the other subjects always seemed more important when ordering……This year I couldn’t afford to order yet & thought this curriculum would just have to do for a while….Wow, what a difference!!! I’m realizing that none of the other subjects matter 1/2 as much. Thank you. Your obedience is changing lives & hearts. We don’t want to stop. We will donate soon!

  18. Priscilla Tomanek August 12, 2014 / 5:25 am

    Wow! I had tears coming out as I was looking through your site. God had given me the word home school. I had no idea what to do with it. Not too long ago I met some ladies that had home schooled their kids and well she gave me someone else to speak to. When I spoke to her she told me to make sure God was telling me to do so and pray. So I did! We have no money right now…going through a financial struggle. So I told God if this was from You, the way would be made. The next morning I received a call from the lady who told me to pray and she told me to check this site out.I did and am so impressed with all you have done and left for others who want a christian program for their kids and can’t afford it. I have been blessed by y’all and know y’all will be blessed 10 fold for this site and the education y’all are providing for so many families. I will keep you in my prayers and when possible I will give back to y’all what you have blessed us with. Thx you God bless!!!

  19. Amanda Farris August 18, 2014 / 3:00 pm

    I, too, have nearly stopped many times. I started homeschooling via a calling from God. I’m oblivious, really. Even so after two and a half years of homeschooling. But I continue to persevere knowing that the Lord is behind us and he supports me and he will continue to give me a way to home educate my child (Cora, 9) and my children to come (Elisha, 10mo). Your ministry here has opened a door for me that guides me so as I don’t give up every day. It’s like having a best friend behind me, encouraging me constantly (The devil constantly tries to convince me I’m not made for homeschooling, that I will fail and fail my child, but I have become more confident through this curriculum.). Thank you for your sacrifice for all of us, your consistent giving, and I pray you continue to feel the joy you experience through doing this.

  20. Monique Martin August 19, 2014 / 5:33 am

    Thank you so much for this homeschooling site! We love it! When it’s possible we do plan on donating. For so long I had searched and prayed for a Christian based curriculum. So blessed to have found you! This is our 3rd year and I finally feel like I’m getting my ducks in a row with all of this. Realizing it’s putting God first, and everything will come. This year we will be homeschooling a seventh grader and two 5th graders. All girls 🙂 Thank you again!

  21. Jo Ann Davis August 20, 2014 / 5:31 am

    I am so thankful for this site. I had been praying about homeschooling our 11 year old child for about a year before I started in Dec. 2013. She was bullied at school and had medical issues (which we think were worsened by the things going on at school.) Finally, I started in Dec. 2014 and now am starting a new year. Our daughter is very bright and I think she was getting bored in public school, also. She’s doing it and many things have improved since we started homeschooling. I just found a homeschool support group in our area and now things are even better. My husband is in full time prison/jail ministry and money has been tight for us, too. God bless you for all you have done and we hope to donate when possible.

  22. Kathe August 21, 2014 / 12:50 am

    Circumstances made it necessary for me to homeschool my 15-year-old for the first time ever. Financial circumstances meant I had no way to pay for any courses, so I kept hitting a brick wall trying to find resources. Thank you so much for sharing your lessons. My daughter is looking forward to starting classes, and I am so grateful for your loving ministry!

  23. Catherine November 5, 2014 / 6:29 pm

    Dear EP,

    Thank you so much. I homeschool my older son two years ( actually not really), but load too much on him. He is back to school. I am pulling out my younger son in the middle of the school year (will end by Xmas break). I am afraid to step out of boat on to water. But knowing that this is what the Lord want me.
    Not a easy road for me (english is not my primary laugauge), do not have confident in myself. But – it is not about me. It is about Him.

    My son is 3rd grade. If I use 3rd grade + year 1 (L) should cover all? which individual course from your site I should add besides 3rd grade + year 1 (L).

    By the way, a homeschool friend sent me your link and I am thankful.

    Blessings
    Catherine

  24. Angie November 5, 2014 / 9:15 pm

    I found your website recently and so amazed at what you offer, and your selfless ways to share. I’m enjoying using the Getting Ready 1 for my preschooler, we were doing a lot of printables but I love how you link the letter songs, pics of the letter, etc…She is picking up the letter faster! I pray that the Lord will continue to bless you and your family.

    • may june November 26, 2014 / 9:08 pm

      Dear EP,

      Happy Thanksgiving. And may the Lord richly blessings your family.

      I found 4th grade details print out but cannot find Year 4 details print out (only Year 1 ). It is useful to know each day what need to be done for Year 4).

      Thanks, Catherine

    What a blessing you are to so many! Thank you for giving to the Lord and to us.

  26. Becky January 13, 2015 / 6:27 pm

    So excited to have found your curriculum.. I was beginning to feel discouraged homeschooling and this is exactly what i needed.. I am starting my kids off with the getting ready 1 at level 172.. I have one question which is, if i pick a level do I need to worry about adding the math and other subjects or is everything included for each day and level that needs to be there? Thanks so much for all you do!! This is such a blessing..

  27. Dream Team January 19, 2015 / 8:29 am

    Thank you for your faith and work. We hope to make this transition into this school. YOUR STORY IS EXCITING AND AUTHENTIC. Most of the world spends 1000s of dollars to send their kids to school. Its sad to see people who can barely make $50 bucks a month try to shell out so much to send their kids to school- its the norm. Its the same here in Africa. We are excited we discovered you… May your every prayer get answered in 2015 and beyond.

  28. Lisa McGuire March 3, 2015 / 5:22 pm

    This site has been a blessing for us. My 16 year old being forced to leave the public school system due to bullying and health issues and no one wanted to help. She had always been independent, but she has developed a since of self worth, when everyone she thought was there for her made her feel like nothing. She does a lot of the work on her own and gives me piles to grade. She has developed such a great level of accomplishments. She has her college goals in place; started receiving college interests and is beginning to feel like a good person again. Still working out the ordeal of how much has she accomplished as she feels she’s a senior now, but I truly believe this site has offered such great things and I thank you for the hard work you put into this for everyone to have.

  29. Jessica G. April 9, 2015 / 1:30 pm

    Thank you so so so much for doing this! We have 2 kids (5 and 10). Our youngest has severe food allergies and a seizure disorder and a sensory processing disorder and the thought of sending her to public school gives us great anxiety. We knew in our heart that homeschooling her was best but the boxed curriculum prices are out of our budget. My husband works full time 40-60 hours per week and I stay home with the kids since daycare was a concern with the youngest’s health. We love this program. I can’t tell you how much this means to me that you do this and offer it for free.

  30. benny April 23, 2015 / 2:04 pm

    Thank you for being such a blessing, I only just stumbled on to this site, I haven’t read everything but I’m impressed and touched because it just showed me again how much God loves me; I’ve been fretting about school for my 10 year old, worried he’s not getting the best education etc. While I’ll not be doing a full homeschool programme, this will help me support him at home. Thank you.

  31. Melanie Lucas June 27, 2015 / 4:54 am

    I want to thank you for putting the time and effort into putting this all together in one place. I am homeschooling my son after spending 10 years in the system. I feel this is a better option for him. I appreciate the fact that you are providing a very valuable resource for free. The price of curriculum can get quite expensive. Again, thank you. If by chance you get a chance to respond, I have a question about sending in some contributions to some of the other parent submitted classes.

  32. Sabby July 17, 2015 / 6:03 am

    God bless you!! God has blessed you!!! And I am so sure God will continue to bless you as you follow His leading!!! I have been homeschooling my 2 children for 5 years now and was needing to make a decision whether to continue for this next year or send them to our local private school. Which by the way is now an excellent choice, with GREAT teachers, so that made my decision even harder. But I have really enjoyed having them home and teaching them (with some exceptions 😉 ) so the choice has been very difficult. I was especially wondering if I could continue “teaching” my grade 5er all she needed to know since I certantly don’t know everything. This curriculum seems like God’s way of answering my prayers. So thank you ever so much for making this available. I understand the immense amount of time and effort that has gone into it. Thank you for following God’s leading. See you in heaven if not here on earth. 🙂

  33. LETANYA EDWARDS August 6, 2015 / 3:11 am

    GOOD EVENING ,

    My mother will homeschool my son this year, while my husband and I go to work in the day time. I know you’ve touch so many heart’s with such an amazing curriculum . God is so GREAT!!! My son is going into the forth grade. How can my child get credited for all the assignments once completed?

  34. Jill August 16, 2015 / 5:05 am

    Thank you so so so much! We knew we needed to homeschool when our oldest son (with autism) began being bullied at school and going to a dark place socially. We are a military family that just PCSed this month and we got hit hard with crazy expenses- like rain=pouring. Shipping a vehicle out of pocket over seas, having all four tires blow out, and finding it towed from our mother in law’s apartment complex. That’s just some it it. Then our pay got messed up after we moved into our new house this week.

    I’d been agonizing this whole summer over curriculum. First the right one, then the cost. It was already going to be tight before all this other stuff happened. I started to consider letting my son try this new school- you know fresh start in a new place. He wanted to do it, so I prayed about it and totally felt convicted that homeschooling was right for us. So I recommitted to that but thought about k12 to save the money I don’t have. But I felt convicted on that as well. I decided to stick it out and just happened upon a link to this today in an email that was a month old! I feel so blessed, thrilled, I can’t even say! I feel like after all that worry, I have the right thing, God delivered, that I have been waiting on! I will look forward to the day I will get to put in my donation! Thank you!!!!

  35. Kandy Williams October 1, 2015 / 3:52 pm

    I am so thankful God led me to your site. I have decided to homeschool this year. I searched and searched all summer for information and courses I could afford. Needless to say, after about 3 months, I had to admit defeat. Today was my last ditch effort to find something feasible or I was going to have to enroll my daughter into public school. I felt like homeschooling was the right direction for her but I was failing her. I found your site today just before shutting down the internet and giving up. You cannot imagine the burden that has been lifted. After taking a tour of the site, courses, and information, I know now that my daughter will get the remainder of her high school education successfully and have the solid foundation she will need to continue on to college and beyond. With the sincerest gratitude, thank you. May the Lord bless you and your family. And one day when my situation changes, may He bless me enough to repay you. No words can describe. Thank you!

  36. Amanda Mayhew October 2, 2015 / 10:23 pm

    I am so excited about finding this curriculum! Praise the Lord! Thank you so much for all your hard work and your service to the Lord. I love that it is Christian based. I will be praying for you and your family!

  39. Dena January 30, 2016 / 7:31 am

    I have four kids all 13 and under I started homeschooling this year and financially it has become to much I was going to have to send them back to school and I really wasn’t looking forward to it but I prayed to god I would find an answer to keep my babies at home with me where I know that they are safe and here you and your site are. Thank you so much for doing this you have no idea how you have touched our family god bless you

  40. Chanelle Tallmage April 2, 2016 / 12:57 am

    I just wanted to thank you for offering this for free!! I have known since my oldest was born that I was going to homeschool my children but have always battled the “am I good enough” “will my kids learn what they need”, etc. My husband is a pastor at a smaller church in SC & financially, we cannot afford paying for a curriculum, especially if there is a possibility that it wouldn’t work for our family. Every year I pray, cry, and ultimately end up putting my oldest in the public school system. I look all year long & try to figure out how to afford the right curriculum for us. And then… The other day I was speaking with an individual & just made the comment that I know I will homeschool, we just can’t afford it right now. And the very next day I literally just stumbled upon your site. I am completely in love & have spent hours perusing everything. I spoke with my husband about wanting to officially begin homeschooling in the Fall. And I am unbelievably at peace about it where just last week I would have started crying, hyperventilating & screaming! Haha I thank you very much & I pray blessings upon you & your family for being such a giver!!

    • Maylin November 5, 2016 / 1:47 am

      Hello I am in South Carolina as well. I just came across this curriculum and it just has touched my heart. I started homeschooling this year and it has been so frustrating to find a system/curriculum that works and that doesn’t take more time away from my son. Have you started homeschooling as well using this curriculum?

  41. laquashia2013 May 6, 2016 / 4:43 am

    I have been praying for God to lead me to the right resources, mentors, and friendship, if it was in the best interest for me to continue homeschooling my soon to be 15 yr old son. I feel my prayers are being answered daily; finding your site was one answered prayer! Words cannot thank you enough for your time, patience, endurance and the love you’ve put into this site/curriculum for homeschooling parents. I just found it today, 05/05/16, while searching online for a music appreciation course, and can’t stop reading. How truly awesome it is to find an adequate, well written, phenomenal curriculum for high school and all the other resources listed. Thank you, thank you thank you!!!!

      I’m so happy to hear you are seeking the Lord about homeschooling your son. We think homeschooling is the best! We hope we can help make the transition smooth and provide you quality resources to build up your son.

    God bless you! I am a pastor in Ohio and father of three boys (15, 11 & 7). I was looking for online ‘summer school’ material and providentially ran across your website. Although I haven’t made it to any of the curriculum yet, my heart has been broken and blessed as I read the spiritual motivation and passion of what has become your story. Be assured your family will be mentioned each evening when our boys pray before bedtime. Thanks for your dedication and humble spirit!

    God bless you. I have cried so many tears over not being able to homeschool my kids(when they struggle with a teacher, come home saying a word they shouldn’t have even heard, or I think of something brilliant I want to teach them but don’t have the time). My husband and I have decided I should quit my job and take the risk because we believe we should be growing and leading our children at home. I’m quitting this week, walking out onto the water and someone on a Facebook group told me about your site.

    God bless you again. Thank you for following His lead. For listening to His spirit speak to you. I know many have been affected by your faith through this site but just know that you have changed my life. My husband’s life. My marriage. And my kids lives.

    Hello!! I stumbled upon this wonderful site as I was searching for help to chose a curriculum for our children. My husband and I left our jobs back in Feb with the hopes of starting our own business. We were tired of our jobs controlling our time with our family and we wanted freedom. We prayed and moved in faith. A few weeks ago, we decided to homeschool. Coming across your site has been what I’d call a wonderful blessing from God! Our business is doing well having only been established two months ago but I have to monitor the cash flow and I just wasn’t prepared to spend hundreds of dollars on a curriculum for school. So I just want to thank you for your obedience to God. I’m so thankful that you hear Him and move accordingly. May He continue to bless your family immensely as you serve so many families in this very special way. -Shanika

    This curriculum is amazing! Wish I would have done more research before I decided to go with Abeka. I would have saved a $1,000 in books and 2 months of shear misery. This has been our first fun week since starting homeschool 2 months ago. We love EP!!!! Thank you for sharing all of your hard work with us.

    I’m a mom of three and in a few short weeks I will be leaving my Teaching job in the public sector to stay home and homeschool my kiddos. I had heard of your site before and encouraged a friend to use it since it was free, but never fully explored it myself. Now that I have spent some time exploring a few different homeschool options, I am convinced yours is the one I want for my sweet kids. I’m excited to be able to donate while I still have a job! I was so nervous about this endeavor, but after creating a schedule for my 7th grader using your site, I am incredibly excited to get started! Thank you for your generosity! I am truly grateful! ~Christina

    This seems to be an answer to prayer! I home educated one son as an only child, for 10 years. It was a wonderful experience. That son is now grown. Currently we have 4 more sons (2,6,8,& 10).
    Homeschooling multiple boys has been a difficult thing to figure out, i have been burdened by a daily sense of defeat in actually teaching academics. I have prayerfully considered putting them in school, but cannot come to peace with the idea.
    I am just beginning EP but I finally have hope again after being at the end of my rope for many years! Thank you for using your gifts to bless others. My heart is filled with praise for God’s grace in your life!

    Hello You! Thank You so much! I have actually been using your curriculum for a very long time. My oldest child has just turned 13, My youngest 11. I would not have been able to afford it any other way! Now I have realized that your curriculum is better than anything that I could have paid for! I thank God for this everyday! Please stay free!!!!! Love you and God Bless : ).
