I have used Little Hearts for His Glory for my daughter for Kindergarten this year. It was our 1st official year of homeschooling, so it was great to have all the wonderful
ideas spelled out for us. We have loved it and will use Little Hands to
Heaven for my 3 year old son next year!

"My son wakes up in the middle of the night to tell me how much he loves doing his "schoolwork". Thank you for equipping Christian parents with this wonderful curriculum. FINALLY an educational program that has its priorities straight! "
Crystal - Magnolia, TX
I can't express enough how much I love your curricula. I used to use Konos, but with #4
coming along and all my children under 7, I wanted a sort of no-brainer-yet-Christian
course to use for just a term. A year-and-a-half later, we've made it through Little
Hands and halfway through Little Hearts, I'm so very glad that I can continue with your
Beyond and Bigger courses to come.
You've got it all, as far as I'm concerned: Bible reading and memory, character traits,
and the basic academic disciplines. Most of the books you use were ones I had already
bought and liked, so it was great to be able to finally put them to use.
You're right when you say that one needn't follow your course exactly -- I chop and
change, because my students are at different levels for different disciplines. Sometimes
they want to move faster than you indicate, and sometimes, we take a couple of weeks off
and fall behind. Who cares?
They're steadfastly loving both their education and their Lord, and that's what your
Well done for such a fantastic resource. I've passed along all my leaflets to friends
thinking about homeschooling so they don't have to worry it's a daunting task. Hope they
come to the right decisions: choose both homeschooling and Heart of Dakota products!

We are using Little Hearts for His Glory
to teach our 5 and 7 year olds. All of our family enjoys the lessons,
and we are done with extra time for play and other fun activities.
Shawna - Eaton, OH
All the members of our family from our 2 year
old, kindergartener, and especially mom and dad have all been
blessed by your organized, insightful collection of lessons,
stories, verses, and activities all working together to help raise
my little ones to love the Lord and love learning in the process.
Amanda - Sonora, CA
My 4 year old, Derra, loves to do school with
Little Hearts for His Glory. We use an entire lesson each day
about 3 times per week, and she remembers everything! We love it!
Kim - Greer, SC
Little Hearts for His Glory at the Arlington, TX home school book
fair. I used it as my main curriculum for Bible, History, and
Science last year. My son who was five at the time LOVED the art,
and activities that went along with the history, science, and
Bible. A year later he has remembered some of the activities and
asked to do them again.
. . . I have highly recommended this curriculum to my friends, and
look forward to using other Heart of Dakota products in the future.
Stefnie - Commerce, TX
I used Little Hands and am now using Little
Hearts. They have made homeschooling fun and almost stress free. My
3 and 5 year old children love it. I love the scriptures and the
Bible study. My children and I are in the Word everyday! I told a
homeschool friend this morning that I wish there was something
after Little Hearts and the same day I got your info about Beyond
Little Hearts! That is definitely God! I will be doing that next

We completed Little Hearts for His Glory last
year and really enjoyed it. My two oldest (then 6 & 4) did a lot of
the learning activities together. I definitely recommend it for
those just getting started in home school!
Robyn - Collins, IA
We love Little Hearts for His Glory! My
5 1/2 year old AND my 3 year old are thriving thanks to your
curriculum. It is easy for me, Christ-centered, flexible and FUN!
Pam - Phillipsburg, NJ
"Thanks for the great, Christ-centered
curriculum! I spent 3 months researching every home school curriculum
I could find. When I found a review for yours on Lamppost's
home school site, I fell in love with the name. After studying your
site, I was really hooked. It was just the approach I had been
searching for! I am a teacher also, so I knew what I wanted. I was
not satisfied with any of the others that I studied. I was so
excited to find yours. -And I have not been disappointed! It has
been a great curriculum. I have already recommended it to several
others. My first attempt at home schooling has been very rewarding!
May God bless you richly for your work!
. . . So, I am planning to use Beyond Little Hearts next year for second
Stephanie - Missionary - San Andres, Colombia.
I love 'Little
Hearts for His Glory!' Last year I really struggled with
teaching my two boys, then ages 5 and 3, because they didn't like
'school.' I was using Sonlight which had great books but was lacking
in the fun, hands-on stuff as well as phonics instruction. Still, we
were spending 2 1/2 hours on school with very little progress in
reading. I love how LHFHG has simple hands-on activities, gross
motor rhymes and provides a very balanced approach. I am never
concerned if I am covering all the bases because you have already
thought it through for me! . . . I
like how you allowed for the user to chose her own phonics course.
This is such an important decision and one that is very unique to
the children being taught. I also really like Christian Liberty
Press books. Kenneth Taylor's 'Devotions for the Children's' Hour' is
simple but meaty enough to answer deeper questions, which I do tend
to get from my eldest son.
All and all, I am so excited about your curriculum guide. I think
you have done an excellent job and I know this was done with much
prayer. I will be praying for you to finish 'Beyond Little Hearts
for His Glory.' Thank you for putting this together! I have been
telling everyone about it!!
Holly Springs, NC
I love how well the lessons are tied
together! How the science complements the history and Bible. I love
the activities, Rhymes in motion, etc. You think of so many neat
things! And put it all together in one book! I think all home
moms come up with neat ideas. But lets face it, many days do not go
as planned. Phones ring, laundry has to be done, and meals cooked.
In a given day, many interruptions happen and some of the great
ideas never get written down! Or done! We have done many similar
activities but, never so organized! I spend about the same amount of
time on lessons but I don't feel like I forgotten or left something
out of everyday! Also, we felt we could just jump right in to the
first lesson, because we were doing math, phonics, and handwriting
already and just plug it in where we needed it. It is so flexible!
We are ever so grateful for all you do! I am excited and look forward to
Hearts for His Glory . . . I have to say again how much
I appreciate having your teachers guide this year. I have always
been able to come up with neat ideas and had a lot of fun teaching
this age, but this past year has been harder. We have our 6 yr old
nephew living with us and I have a father with health problems and
just needed something I could just pick up and do and its been
really fun. This really does work well for the age children I have
at home. My older son has had a hard time reading without someone
to listen to each and every page, so listening to him read too can
really cause burnout at the end of the day!
Now, everyone in the house is reading or beginning to read, this
takes about 1 1/2 hrs at night b/c everyone wants mom to listen!
Your guide has been a little piece of sanity, (and organization) to
our day! I just keep following the boxes and check them off as I
go! I may even come up with a "box" approach for planning my son's
lessons too! And have him check them off as he goes! Although I am
not as handy on the computer as I would like to be!
Have a great weekend.
God Bless You,
We have been using Little Hands this
year with my 5 and 3 year old. This program is very easy to follow.
The layout is excellent and the activities are fun. My kids are
saying the finger plays all the time. We will be progressing into
the follow up Little Hearts and know that our year will be another
success. Carrie is an excellent author with great ideas put into

We have been using
Little Hearts for
His Glory for over 5 months and we love it! I like how organized it
is. I know what to do when. I love the variety, the Bible time, and
the math. My son can read now. It is great!

Little Hearts for His Glory is just
what I was looking for for my son. I think I mentioned this at the
convention but I have tried and tried to pull together various
resources and haven't been successful-but that is just what you've
Little Hearts for His Glory has worked
well for my 5 year old and 7 year old (who is learning-challenged)
boys. I modified it, but it was an excellent guideline.

. . . wanted to just share with you how much we are enjoying "Little
Hearts for His Glory"!
It has added new life into what we do at home, and it is so much fun for
She's 4 1/2 but fairly advanced, (avid reader, etc), so this program is
perfect. We're loving the variety, the materials, and the book reading.
My daughter absolutely can't wait to find out what's going to happen next
to Reddy the Fox. Your ideas are extremely creative from day to day. And
I love you involve the various senses to tie in the Key points.
A big thank you
