We have been homeschooling for 14 years and have used many different resources. This one is my favorite! It puts the lessons in a way that are understandable for the student and teacher as well as practical without drudgery. The lessons and devotional guide teach the student to apply the lessons to daily life now, as it is taught for all areas of life. Not a separate area. The way Steve Demme has laid this course out it brings in some added "Ah-hah!! ... Thats what we use that math concept for...." Not only does this course teach stewardship, but also models integrity too. I highly recommend!
