Books Worth Reading:

Angels– Billy Graham

A Clear Guide to Revelation– Ross Lyon

This Is My Home, This Is My School– Jonathan Bean (Note: This is a children’s book but definitely worth a mention because it is the only picture book I’ve ever seen written in a realistic way about the life of a homeschooler. I highly recommend this book.)
