Growing in Christ’s Image

gcicoverA Character Book of Remembrance

Add to your faith virtue, … 2 Peter 1:5

Character is the second most important thing we disciple our children in. It is something we both teach and train in – day in and day out. It isn’t the easiest thing we can teach our children. Math, Reading, HisStory are all so much easier. But after the knowledge of God and Salvation by Jesus the Christ alone, Character is the most important thing we can train our children in. We must have the Character ourselves to be consistent and diligent in teaching them. We must realize that the trials we face, even in this, are for our own maturing and growth in the image of Christ.

This resource contains over 25 journaling forms masters for documenting the information, illustrations, and applications we learn in our studies of Character Qualities. Each form has 2 different formats, for beginning writers (who need ruled mid-lines) and more experienced writers (who don’t).

These Journaling forms can be used for personalized study, (searching the dictionary, the Scriptures, and other resources for your own study,) or with character teaching resources you have. Character for Life and other biographies of heroes of faith can be helpful.

Permission given to make copies as needed for your own immediate family, for as many character studies as you desire.

Freedom & Simplicity™ for Vocabulary & English Roots


A Biblical Principles Course
with Notebooking Pages

Words have meanings. And knowing the meanings of a wide variety of words and how to use them properly helps us communicate more precisely to others so they can understand us better. It also is a great help in learning more new words.

If you plan to go to college, a study of English Vocabulary is important. If you plan to converse with others effectively (and I hope you do) it is vital.

This Freedom & Simplicity™ resource provides the tools you need to effectively study Vocabulary, so you can effectively use it in communication. Follow the R Road process to reason through several types of word studies, and Journal these studies on the provided notebooking forms. Rather than a full list of words to study, this course gives you the tools to study any word! Why do Word Studies? Read here.

It’s About Time ~ Freedom & Simplicity™ Timelines

fstimelinescover13 Types of Timelines & How to Make Them

HisStory is about Time. It’s about God working throughout time, to reveal His plan. Time shapes each event on earth into what it is. Being able to place events, ideas and lives into their correct time brings much understanding to His (God’s) Story. A timeline is a tool that helps us place those happenings.

In addition to great reasons for utilizing a timeline in your studies, there are many types of timelines, and ways you can design a timeline. In this Guidebook, I share both with you. But most of all I share with you how we have come to Freedom & Simplicity™ with Timelines. What tools are going to be the most effective and easiest to use for the task at hand, understanding the flow of all of HisStory? And how to we make them and use them?

In It’s About Time, we look at 13 different types of timelines, and directions for making and using them, and provide you with several options for timeline figures—many of them free!

This Freedom & Simplicity™ guide covers:

  • The Purpose and Framework of Timelines
  • The Pictorial Framework Timeline
  • Timeline Figures
  • The Timeline in a Book
  • Journal (Notebook) Timeline Pages
  • Timeline on a Board
  • Timeline in a Box
