I just wanted to thank you for recommending the Jr. High history book from Dr. Stobaugh. I have Michael often read it out loud and it causes such amazing discussion about life issues and causes him to ask questions that are essential to our christian life, as happened today. I am indebted to Dr. Stobaugh for making history interesting, but most of all for imbedding our christian values and principles into it to make it pertinent for our children, a true christian education!
