I do, so I was delighted to get to review the book called “Nothing by Natalee Creech” by WorthyKids, an imprint of Hachette Book Group. “For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
History is one of my absolutely favorite subjects and it is also our son Jake’s (and Dennis’s too) so I was very excited to review the US History curriculum called “Pathway to Liberty History Curriculum” by Pathway to Liberty Homeschool Curriculum.
