It’s a family affair!

Heart of Dakota Tidbit:

It’s a family affair!

Did you know our parents graciously watch and homeschool our children while we attend book fairs?  “Nana” Mellema, “Papa” Mellema, and Grandma Jackie have all taught from our HOD guides through the years too!  So, HOD is always truly a family affair – even when we have to be gone at a convention!!!

Have a great weekend!

Our Grand Beginning

Our Grand Beginning

Did you know that the first guide that Carrie wrote was “Drawn into the Heart of Reading”? We sold one of them (barely) at our first convention which was in Minot, ND in 2002. The price of the Teacher’s Guide was $65.00, it was spiral-bound, and it had colored page dividers between each genre.

Oh yes, and the temperature with wind-chill the day of the convention, March 1st, was about -55 and our van would not start when the convention was over. It was a grand beginning.

Have a great weekend!

It all started with Drawn into the Heart of Reading.

Did you know Heart of Dakota started with just one guide (Drawn into the Heart of Reading) and just Convention Booth - High Schoolone booth at book fairs back in 2001? Now we have 14 guides and six booths at book fairs! Check out some pictures of our booth, and come find us at a book fair we are attending in 2018. See our 2018 convention schedule here.

This weekend we are at the Teach Them Diligently Convention in Nashville, TN. Our booth number is 1023, so stop by if you are there. We would love to talk to you about our easy to use Christian homeschool curriculum!

Have a great weekend!
