TOS Crew Product Review ~ "Considering God's Creation" by Eagle's Wings


What a pleasant surprise when I was chosen to review this science product from a company that is very dear to my heart - Eagle's Wings! My fondness of Eagle's Wings products stems back nearly 14 years to a time when I was a young mom seeking the "perfect" phonics curriculum to use with my 5 year old son. Now that son is 18 years old and graduated from high school a few weeks ago. In the fall he will attend Wheaton College (a fantastic Christian school - you can learn more about it at Wikipedia). Eagle's Wings phonics curriculum (Alphabet Island) laid a solid foundation for my son's education. Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about this company's product line!

Eagle's Wings natural science curriculum, Considering God's Creation, is the subject of this product review. Included in this set are the student workbook, teacher's manual, and audio CD of 23 songs. The teacher's manual lays out each lesson with clear instruction, so mom is ready to teach even if she is hesitant about her ability to teach science. The student workbook contains pages that correspond with each of the 36 lessons; the workbook enables one student to create a memorable notebook (you will need to purchase additional workbooks if you plan to teach mor than one child). The audion CD contains songs that make the memorization of information much easier than traditional rote memorization.


Considering God's Creation is meant to be easily adapted for multi-level teaching. It can be used with students from 2nd grade through high school, and the thorough teacher's guide provided plenty to ways to adjust each lesson to fit your individual homeschool. The introduction provides an excellent explanation of multi-level teaching, and even has suggestions for using the curriculum with children in preschool! Another option with Considering God's Creation is that it can easily be used with whatever science curriculum you might currently be using; you can simply use what fits to enhance the program you are currently using. Not many product offer such flexibilty for only $29.95 ~ it is an excellent value!

If you choose to use Considering God's Creation as a stand-alone science program, it fits perfectly into one academic year. At the rate of one lesson per week, you would finish in 36 weeks. Many of the lessons contain several different parts, so the work can easily be divided over a few days during the week. For the industrious mom, or if you choose to teach using "block" method, each lesson could be finished in one longer sitting. It's such flexible curriculum, you can just adapt it as you need to!


Topics covered within Considering God's Creation include "Creation", "The Universe", "The Earth", "Non-Living Things", "Weather", "The Plant Kingdom", "The Animal Kingdom", "Animal Anatomy & Physiology", "Man", and a miscellaneous section. Having such a broad scope and sequence makes for an exciting year of science. I can tell you from first-hand experience, your children will retain what they learn from Eagle's Wings products. Considering God's Creation is a solid study of the natural sciences from a Biblical worldview. I cannot recommend this company's products strongly enough; they are top-notch.

An example of the content in Lesson 1 includes vocabulary words, songs and poems, Bible reading, notebook assignments, a wonderful feature called "Evolution Stumpers", review questions and a "Digging Deeper" section that has ideas for activities and projects that build upon the lesson and is ideal for older students.

Other products created by Eagle's Wings include their fantastic phonics program, Alphabet Island (sold in different levels or as a complete set priced from $9.95 to $119.95), Kinder-Math ($14.95), Capital Game (for learning state capitals - $8.95), and a wonderful selection of Bible History curriculum ($35 per set). You can learn more about any of these products by visiting the Eagle's Wings website at

Lord bless you as you seek to homeschool for His glory!

Day 97 done :)

A Homeschool Mom's Devotional (# 1)

Colossians 4:17 tells the reader to "be sure to carry out the work the Lord gave you".

How can this be applied to the enormously busy lifestyle of a homeschool mom?

First of all, we must always remember that the Word of God has the answer for our every need and we can trust fully in God to use His Word to lead us, guide us, correct us, and bless us.

Keeping that in mind, let's consider what this verse is saying. We are told to carry out, or complete, the work the Lord has given us. We are wives, mothers, homeschoolers. Those three BIG job descriptions come immediately to mind when I think of homeschooling mothers. Applying God's Word to our life means carrying out our work as wives, as mothers, and as homeschoolers.

When I am exhausted from another long day (or long week, long month, long year, etc.) I still must honor the Lord by blessing my husband. Maybe that means having a hot meal on the table when he arrives home from work. Perhaps your husband would prefer a…

My Preferred Bible Reading Plan

We all know that reading our Bibles is a key part of living a healthy life as a follower of Jesus. But busy homeschool moms may, at times, struggle to know what part of the Bible to read on any given day.

Some people read the Bible through, Genesis to Revelation, and when they finish simply start over. Others have reading plans that follow along with the sermons their pastor is currently preaching. And yet others find themselves "stuck in the Psalms", since they're not quite sure what to read.

I'm not going to tell you how many chapters a day you should read, or that you need to do exactly what I do. I'm just going to share what has worked for me, and hopefully encourage you to get into the Word using some type of plan ~ because every homeschool mom knows what happens to our plans when we fail to create a plan, right?!

I use a prayer and Bible reading guide called "Prayer Point", published by Samaritan's Purse. About every 8 weeks, I receive a new i…

Do You Homeschool? Then You Need to Read This Article!

Whether you have been homeschooling for a month, a year, or a decade, you've inevitably faced the "questions". Questions about socialization, college, athletics, driver's ed, high-school biology, etc. etc. etc. and so on.....

It seems as if homeschoolers are ripe for questions from day one; but the flip side seems to be that there really is no flip side. We are expected to patiently answer any and all questions, smiling politely and pretending we've never heard this line of questioning before. But when we try to ask a few questions about, say, public schools as a whole or the issue of private schools being used as a last-ditch landing spot for students expelled from public school, well...ahem...we're pretty much told to keep quiet. No one wants to hear our questions, and often times no one really wants to hear our answers to their questions. They just kind of want us to....go....away.

I'm not planning on going away any time soon. And neither are my five …

Everything by Mary DeMuth

The book Everything by Mary DeMuth became a "keeper" for me almost as soon as I began reading. Mary sugarcoats nothing in her attempt to make Jesus' gospel what it rightly is ~ and as you probably guessed from the title of her book, it rightly is about everything.

Eighteen chapters, three sections, one-hundred and ninety-eight pages...if you take the time to delve into them you will grow exponentially in your walk with the Lord. In Everything Mary calls us out, calls us higher, and admonishes us with honesty and openness. Sharing from her heart and relying heavily on the truth that is God's Word, she sets things straight. There aren't just one or two things about this book that I have taken to heart; and there aren't just a couple of quotes I could share here. The book in it's entirety is a game-changer!

Please buy this book, read this book, apply the truths in this book to your life, and let the Lord become your everything!

TOS Crew Product Review ~ Reading Eggs

Reading Eggs is an online learning program for pre, early and emergent readers (ages 3 to 7 primarily, with a unique online area for readers ages 7 to 12).

As my children are all older, this is primarily an informational review, kind of like "looking back" to consider how this program might have worked for our family several years ago. However, we did spend quite a bit of time using the online are for older readers, called "Reading Eggspress" - I will mention both throughout the review.

The Reading Eggs website is divided into three categories: First Steps for 3-4 years; Ready for School for 5-year-olds; Fun Practice Makes Perfect for 6-7 years. The ages are really more like guidelines, so your child could easily move through all the levels at their own pace. And when ready, they could move on to the lessons available at Reading Eggspress.

I feel this would have been a fun, easy to use resource for my children in their early years as readers. There are loads of option…
