We are families with a love for God and a passion for truth.

Welcome and thank you for your interest in learning more about us and our new curriculum called Surviving the Oregon Trail.  Surviving the Oregon Trail is all about our incredible American History, Geography and Survival Studies brought to you in fun hands-on activities, printed word-search puzzles, memorable stories, life-changing lessons and more!

As God as our guide we look forward to sharing with you what we have learned in hopes that you and your family may benefit not only in learning and fun activities, but perhaps some of the knowledge you gain may help you survive a future struggle of your own someday.

Proverbs 29:18 – Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

Psalm 119:105-106 – Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. I have sworn and confirmed that I will keep Your righteous judgments.

Matthew 5:45 – He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Matthew 7:24-27 – “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.  “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 – That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new”? It has already been in ancient times before us.

Revelation 7:9-17 – So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
