Sonlight Curriculum prepared my kids for life

After homeschooling for 7 years I stumbled upon Sonlight Curriculum.

I could not believe how easy it was to teach my two youngest children together (3rd and 6th grade) with Sonlight. At that time in my life, things were very busy. My husband was a full time pastor with a full time secular job as well. Since his secular job was from home, people came by all the time to talk and counsel with him--plus we had a lot of church activities to attend and so forth.


Sonlight Curriculum was an amazing discovery. The full lesson plans did all the scheduling work for me and--this is the good part--I actually enjoyed the books. With other more traditional curriculum we endured and I faithfully checked off what the kids had done (I have 3 older boys who were homeschooled through 9th grade, then went to public school), but it was boring to me and to them. Some days I dreaded getting up--just facing those boring textbooks was almost too much to face.

With Sonlight, I was not bored and the kids flourished. They were inspired by great literature, and since they were learning together, they really forged close sibling bonds.

They learned how to share, to help and encourage each other, to be better family members. Isn't this the type of "life preparation" we want for our kids. Additionally, they did well academically. Now, 19 years later, my daughter has graduated from college and is on her own--and my younger son is a sophomore at our state university studying Homeland Security. They are doing well and really get along well with each other and their roommates-also they have such a nice broad education that they can converse with folks on many topics.

Sonlight prepared my kids for life, giving them tools which serve them well today and in the future.

I'm also sold on Sonlight. It took us several years before we gave it a whirl, and I'll never go back. I have five kids, and the oldest four are all on the same level. WONDERFUL!
