Helpful Homeschool Teaching Tools for Daughters










Are you a homeschooling mom to daughters?

I have four daughters---one graduated, one a senior this year, another in 6th grade and then there is little Bella Rose who just turned one (the little light of my life). 




I am so grateful for them because I know the Lord is continually doing a work in each of them as they bloom and grow older.

And as a homeschooling mom I am always looking for resources to make my life easier but yet still want the tools that will teach my daughters in the way that I want them to go. I am grateful for tools that are a positive influence in their lives, growing their character, instead of being a negative influence which is so rampant out in the world today. 

That is why I am grateful for the Build Your Bundle Homeschool sale---check out what they have for girls:

Mommy,...Why? A Titus 2 Story for Young Girls Bundle - Retail $28.95

The Bible has a lot to say about bringing up your children in the "training and instruction of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4.) Today's generation of girls are growing up in a culture that disdains Biblical femininity and homemaking. Titus 2 describes the pattern and the content for raising up the next generation. "Mommy...Why?" presents a fresh look at an old concept...the concept of the "high calling" of wife and mother.
"Mommy...Why" illustrates the blessing and privilege of this God ordained vocation. Your young daughter will gain insight into the how and the why of this special calling....a direct result of "the older women training the younger women" in a God glorifying way.

This bundle includes the text, coloring book/activity guide, and a study guide.
