Dear Homeschooling Parent,

Sheila Carroll, LBC owner

It is my heart-felt mission to restore the sense of joy in the seasons and festivals. Our children need these times to renew and restore, to receive the sense of continuity that these traditions provide.

Envision family time focused on the events leading up to the birth of Jesus. Pouring over picture studies of the Christmas story in great art, listening to charming folktales that have been part of celebrations for centuries. Creating a Jesse tree or advent calendar that tells the story of Jesus throughout the Bible. Imagine taking time from your homeschool to focus on the things that matter most at this time of year.

It's not always easy in today's culture to experience these things--even for homeschooling families.

That's why I created the LBC Rediscovering Christmas Course.
It's a step-by-step weekly plan for using a wide range of resources in your homeschool, family devotions, and leisure time.

Here's what you receive.
20 downloadable...
Living books, audios, picture studies, recipes from homeschooling moms like yourself, music, folktales, and more. Then we send you help to use all these wonderful resources!
