Are you looking for a homemaking curriculum for your girls of all ages?
Check out Polished Cornerstones, Projects for Daughters on the Path to Womanhood! I have been hearing about this curriculum for a while and I’ve been longing to try it out with my own girls. Imagine how happy I was when Doorposts offered to send me a copy to review.
Ok, I have a confession. I actually asked them to send me a copy! I’ve never used my blogger status to try to get free stuff, but this book inspired me to try for the first time. Furthermore, I knew that Homegrown Mom readers might like a shot at a free copy, too, and Doorposts generously agreed to bestow one copy upon a blessed reader.
Here is why you want to win this:
In this massive, spiral bound volume, 52 Characteristics of the Proverbs 31 Woman are taught.
Each of the 52 lessons consists of various suggestions to teach girls how to develop these characteristics at 3 different age levels: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. However, many of the lessons can be combined to include all ages.
Lessons include: Memory verses, Reading selections, Questions to discuss, Scripture passages to read, Projects to do, and more. Several lessons include charts and worksheets to fill in.
I literally wept when I was reviewing this book. To have these qualities laid out to teach, and knowing that I get to be the one to teach them honestly moved me to tears. I am so looking forward to projects, chats over tea, and most of all, digging into God’s Word to see what He says about being a Virtuous Woman.
The author, Pam Forster, recommends planning out one month at a time and choosing from the extensive menu of activities for one lesson. She suggests setting aside a couple of hours a couple times a week. If you do plan one lesson per month, this book will last you years!
I love her idea of planning to answer some of the questions with dad over an ice cream. And guess what? Eric and the girls love it, too! A homemaking curriculum that involves Dad? I know you want it now!
That is what is so unique and cool about this curriculum. At its core, it is about discipling your daughters in the Lord. Along the way, you’ll teach them lots of skills and train them in many areas of homemaking and Godly living, but all of it goes back to God’s Word and spending time with your girls.
