The Christian Heroes: Then & Now from YWAM Publishing is HANDS DOWN - my ALL TIME FAVORITE homeschooling resource! Warning...do not let your children read these books if you want them to lead a "normal" life. These best-selling biographies will open up a world of excitement, challenges, and will inspire your children to lead lives filled with extraordinary adventures for God and his Glory. My testers had a contest to see who would get to review Christian Heroes- Betty Green & Digital Study Guide - My 13 year old daughter won this one!
At our first homeschool conference...way, way back, someone gave us a free copy of Gladys Aylward: Life of Adventure. We took it home and we were hooked. The very next year, I went straight to YWAM Publishing and purchased their entire set of both Christian Heroes: Then & Now and Heroes of History. My dear husband is still recovering from the shock that I bought "one of everything on the table."
Years later, both of us agree - these books have had LIFE CHANGING effect on our family! Our children have grown up reading (and listening to) stories of real life men and women that have been used by God to do amazing things. It has profoundly impacted them. All 8 of my children have expressed the desire to be missionaries. These books are great for ages 10+ to read independently - However, our entire family has enjoyed them as family read alouds and loves listening to audios as well.
Christian Heroes- Betty Green is the perfect role model for our daughters! She is an inspiring, God-loving woman who lived a life full of adventure following God's call into aviation and all the way to Nigeria. Her life spans 1920-1997, making her a modern day missionary. My tester is already a huge fan of the YWAM books, but she could not put this one down. She admires Betty Greene's "calmness under pressure" and "How she meet other famous missionaries like Cameron Townsend and Nate Saint."
