Answers Bible Curriculum for Kids

Well, it's that time of the year when everyone is putting out their school supplies and all us homeschool Mom and Dad's are deciding which curriculum we want to order for this upcoming school year! It's so exciting to decide which curriculum we are gonna use in our home each and every year!

Today I want to share with you an amazing company called Masterbooks. They have the most amazing curriculum. I had the pleasure of reviewing Answers for Kids Bible Curriculum and all I can say is WOW!! It's fabulous!!!

I am using this with my 7 and 9 year olds this year for bible. It is such an engaging curriculum and very easy for my bugs to understand. The lesson plans are very easy to use and provide very detailed explanations of each lesson along with scripture, memory verses, visuals and materials to use, Lesson Truths and preparation for your lessons.

It came with a Teacher Resource CD-ROM and also a song cd.

We are not even close to finishing this, so when we are completely through with this wonderful bible curriculum, I will be back for a full review on this including lots of pictures of my bugs learning and having fun with this!!!

I encourage you to go check out Masterbooks. I highly recommend them when deciding on which curriculum you want to use in your homeschool. We love MASTERBOOKS!!!!!

Talk to you later!!!

Fig Season

It's fig season around here so I decided to find a really good fig muffin recipe for our breakfast the other morning. They were delicious! Recipe at the bottom!



2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar, I used Sucanat
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 1/2 cups chopped dried figs, I used my fresh figs cooked down in an extra light syrup


1/4 cup sugar (I used Sucanat)
1/4 cup quick oats
1 tablespoon butter


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 12-cup muffin tin with baking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. In a separate bowl, whisk buttermilk, oil, vanilla and egg until combined. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture, folding to combine. Fold in figs. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin tins. Prepare topping, sprinkle over batter. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.
