Carissa, homeschool mom of 5 children, joined me on the podcast to discuss one of her favorite “family-style” homeschool curriculum from Master Books: Elementary Zoology. As an adult, Carissa left a very influential cult to become a Christian. Now, her passion for raising her children under the authority of God’s Word and teaching a #ProBible science is so strong and so contagious. In this post, I am sharing some of her quotes and details about the course worked for her family.

At Master Books, we are intentional about helping your children become confident students who love to learn.
