Preparing Testimony

Postby Allison TX » Fri Sep 19, 2008 2:48 pm

It has been a while since I last posted. After weeks of agonizing over what to use this fall ( piecing my own thing together, which level of HOD, should I used different levels or combine kids, formal grammar or not, the list goes on....) I am happy to say that we just finished week 3 of Preparing and are LOVING it! I tried to use Bigger and Preparing but found that it was too much for me. After a few days of tweaking I settled on using only Preparing. I have been using it as written (with the exception of math) and I can't believe how much more peaceful our days have been. I kept trying to tweak, add, substitute, and change, and my husband finally told me to try Preparing ,only, using it as written. I have to say, it has been wonderful! It is a great fit for both my boys. They are learning so much, and they love all the book choices.
I had to let go of the need to control everything in a curriculum, and trust that God led me to HOD for a reason. Thank you Carrie for writing such great and God honoring programs! :D

Also, I have read on some other forums recently about HOD not being challenging enough. We have used several other pre-planned programs, and I find HOD to be the most challenging, complete, and biblically based. I think the trick is to find the right level and use it as written. Just my humble opinion. :D

Allison I can so relate to what you are saying in that trusting it as it is. I am such a major curriculum tweaker it is so hard to do that. But our most peaceful and actually the deepest learning comes often when we do just that. I am so glad Preparing is working for you. It looks like such an amazing program. Enjoy! :D
