Reading and discussing great literature is a wonderful way to solidify family faith and values. This presentation will focus on three works of literature from three age groups, showing how to use each as a way to build faith in children and acting as a template for discussion and learning from other books.


Using the scriptures, prophets, resources from the church distribution center I will offer answers to the above questions.

I have seven children and have been home schooling for 26 years and teach a 5-year home school literature class that culminates in the students taking the AP exam in English literature. I write literature and history curricula for American Heritage Schools and love books and learning truths from them.
